Dr. Mehran R. Lari serves as Lead Mentor at Scottsdale Center for Dentistry, working with other dentists who hope to cull knowledge from his expertise and vast internal library of cosmetic-, surgical-, and general-dentistry techniques. Dr. Lari studied dental surgery in Bangalore, India, before migrating to the University of Southern California, where he received his doctorate. Currently, he logs more than 200 credits annually, taking courses about cutting-edge dental techniques such as dental implants and aesthetics. In addition to keeping himself abreast of the latest dental developments, Dr. Lari preaches the importance of patient education. His staff takes care to explain the patient’s options before treatment so that patients can make informed decisions about their dental destinies. To help to pave the information highway, Dr. Lari’s office reveals hidden goings-on with digital x-rays, which have 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays and 80% less radiation than angry toasters.
