Dr. Maryam Talaie draws upon her knowledge of aesthetics and the latest sedation techniques to beautify smiles while reducing dentist-related anxieties. Before procedures begin, the staff calms nerves with candles, soothing music, and complimentary coffee and juice. In treatment rooms, chairs equipped with Tempur-Pedic headrests cradle patients, and orchids and bamboo stalks sway near aromatherapy oils. Intraoral cameras make exams easier by allowing Dr. Talaie to peer painlessly into mouths to identify dental issues or to see if that’s where you hid the card she picked. Digital x-rays produce as little as 5% of the radiation of traditional x-rays, and instantly developed images appear on the monitor without the need for printing.
