Dr. M. A. Zareh, an alum of the University of Southern California’s dentistry school, believes that everyone deserves comfortable, deft dentistry. This philosophy prompted him to work with homeless clients through the Union Rescue Mission of Los Angeles and to offer dentist-phobic patients diverse sedation options at his private practice. He also strives to set young patients at ease, teaching them proper hygiene practices through kid-friendly “show-and-tell” examples, rather than with Billy, the Blackmail Toothbrush. He and his team can just as adeptly administer general dentistry’s cleanings and x-rays, or augment smiles with whitening, six-month power braces, and other cosmetic treatments.
