Finding the best dentist for YOU in no matter where you live
Choosing a dentist for your needs can be a daunting task. The United States is a hub for medical and dental professionals catering to the needs of celebrities and blue collar workers alike.
When seeking the best dentist, it is necessary to look past the beautiful decorative offices and the prestigious addresses. What is most important is the man or woman who will be working on your precious smile.
Some of us are so daunted, we simply avoid dentists altogether. This is not a smart strategy. According to the federal government’s “Healthy People 2020” program, studies link poor oral health to chronic diseases, including diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
Regular visits to the dentist play a significant role in preventing these conditions. For over the last 25 years, dentistry has seen a proliferation of digital technologies that dramatically improve quality of care, and the advances in Cosmetic, Restorative, and Surgical Dentistry has moved leaps and bounds beyond typical dentures and crowns.
So how should you go about selecting a Cosmetic Dentist in your area?
Here are some points you should consider when choosing a cosmetic dentist:
#1 Experience in ALL aspects of dentistry
Experience is an important part of any dentist’s qualifications. Your dentist should have years of experience and many successful procedures under their belt. Dr. Arash’s unique ability to evaluate the mouth as a whole taking into considerations his knowledge of root canals, surgery, cosmetics, crowns and veneers, periodontal therapy and more allows for a more comprehensive evaluation and treatment plan. Remember that cosmetics always comes secondary to function and in order to achieve both your dentist needs to have experience in both aspects of practice.
#2 Member of Local Dental Society, State Dental Association and American Dental Association
Your trusted dentist should be a member of their local, state and national dental societies. This could compare in importance to choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon vs. a general surgeon to perform a surgical procedure. Your smile deserves the best of the best, a dentist dedicated to his field and learning the advances in cosmetic dentistry techniques while maintaining associations to the aforementioned dental societies. Dr. Arash Hakhamian DDS is a proud member of The Los Angeles Dental Society, The California Dental Association, and The American Dental Association.
#3 Scope of services
Some dentists offer only a few services, such as the popular veneers or dental implants procedures. But a truly talented dentist should be able to successfully and skillfully perform any dental procedure, from implants and veneers, to teeth whitening and whole mouth restorations.
Dr. Hakhamian offers all these services and more.
#4 Personal consultation
When it comes down to it, you should feel confident and comfortable with the dentist you choose to work on your smile. A personal consultation with a cosmetic or restorative dentist, where you can go over what you need and how they can help your specific smile, is the best way to determine if you have chosen the right dentist.
