Choosing the best cosmetic dentist for your needs can be a difficult task, especially in cities like Beverly Hills and Los Angeles. This area is full of highly-trained (and some not highly-trained) medical professionals, catering to the needs of celebrity A-list clients, top-level media executives and even Saudi royalty.
When seeking the best cosmetic dentist, it is crucial 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.
It isn’t a coincidence that many of the best cosmetic dentists in the world do practice in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles. This is the entertainment capital of the world and as such, there is a great demand for the perfect smile among those who earn their living in this industry.
The best cosmetic dentists will be those who have years of experience in all aspects of cosmetic and restorative dentistry. Nothing takes the place of treating thousands of patients with different needs and different degrees of dental problems.
Dr. Maddahi is the author of an Amazon bestseller, Anti-Aging Dentistry – Restoring youth one smile at a time. His revolutionary approach to restoring a vibrant, youthful smile, called the Maddahi Smile Lift, is based on his observation that structural abnormalities in the mouth can be the cause of multiple signs of aging, such as hollowed cheeks.
His analysis of these misunderstood abnormalities combined with his professional experience has found that expertly placed porcelain veneers and crowns can not only brighten the smile, but can replace the need for injectable and facelifts.
Dr. Maddahi opened his dental practice almost 30 years ago and is considered a pioneer in cosmetic dentistry. He is a premier cosmetic dentist who is respected by his peers and admired by his patients due to his contributions to the advancement of cosmetic dentistry and his remarkable results. While he does specialize in cosmetic dentistry, his extensive list of services includes a comprehensive array of cosmetic and functional dentistry. It is often the case that cosmetic issues have stemmed from functional problems or years of neglect that must be addressed prior to rejuvenating the smile.
Not only can he provide world class veneers, teeth whitening, crowns and implants, his reputation for taking on ‘impossible’ cases and turning lives around has resulted in appearances on The Doctors, Oprah, TLC, MyFoxLA and many more. Over 6000 patients have experienced his kind and caring attitude and his courage in taking on cases that other doctors have declined.
Another important thing to consider is whether or not the dentist is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). This is similar to choosing a board certified plastic surgeon over a general surgeon. An AACD member belongs to the largest international cosmetic dental organization in the world. Its members are committed to advancing excellence in the field of cosmetic dentistry and are constantly training in the newest techniques and materials used in the expanding field of cosmetic dentistry.
Dr. Maddahi is a proud member of the AACD and is a firm adherent to the principle of continuing his education as he perfects his technique. He completes three times the required amount of continuing education courses each year to maintain membership in the various professional organizations he belongs to. He also lectures frequently to his fellow colleagues and those newly in the field of cosmetic dentistry.
The scope of the dentist’s practice should be capable of caring for the ongoing needs of patients. Does he or she offer comprehensive cosmetic dentistry or does the office only specialize in the more popular services such as porcelain veneers?
Dr. Maddahi offers comprehensive cosmetic and restorative dentistry. He can help patients who need anything from their semi-annual teeth cleaning, to whole mouth restorations and everything in between. His extensive practice is suitable for everyone including children, those who fear dentistry, celebrities, people who need anti-aging or bio-friendly dentistry and those who are looking for a soothing calm environment that feels more like a spa than a dental office.
The best way of assessing a potential cosmetic dentist is to book an appointment with him or her. Your consultation should go both ways, with you asking questions of the dentist as well as giving information on your goals. That way you can judge for yourself if you have found the best cosmetic dentist for your needs.Back to Education
