Happy New Year!
I wanted to take a moment to wish all of you a happy new year. Going into 2011, your children are assured to get the same high-quality attention and dental care from me and my team. Each year, we all do our best to improve our skills and our practice to offer your children the best dental service in the area.
And, as we head into the new year, I’d like to remind you to make sure and prioritize dental health for you and your family. The little things you do for home care and with your regular cleaning and prevention visits are very important.
Best wishes for the new year. I hope that you will continue to tell your family and friends about our practice and let people know about the excellent dental care your children receive from us.
We love to give recognition to our new friends. Here are the new patients that became members of our practice family this past December. We’d like to welcome you publicly & wish you all the best.

Thank You For Choosing Us!
Creating beautiful smiles has never been easier for today’s patients. Unlike, the treatment many parents had to endure, the treatment options for today’s children is much:
Typically produces fuller smiles, with longer lasting results and less incidence of relapse
Healthier TMJ function that lasts for a life time
There are typically few cases that would involve or necessitate the removal of permanent teeth (extractions), and very few cases in which the ‘socially awkward’ and unwanted use of headgear is needed. Customized care is a hallmark of everyone’s treatment at Dr. Stella’s FUNtastic Dental & Orthodontics. Dr. Sanjideh will review the specific needs, concerns of each patient before recommending a specific course of action. Many children are in need of ‘orthopedic’ care to develop jaw shapes and positions prior to ‘orthodontic’ movement. This helps to eliminate the time actually spent in braces and creates a more stable end result with healthier joint function (ie. improved TMJ health).
Orthodontics does not only create beautiful smiles, but creates a healthier mouth and jaw function while contributing to the self-esteem of the patient. Call us TODAY to schedule your FREE ORTHODONTIC CONSULTATION, (562) 627-8800.
We now offer 2 convenient orthodontic days: Mondays and Wednesdays.
NO PAIN DOES NOT MEAN NO PROBLEM!
If you are tempted to skip
because your child does not feel pain, and you can’t see anything wrong, think again.
What you can’t see or feel can cause the most trouble! These dental
problems can be treated, and often reversed, if spotted early.
Here’s What We See That You Can’t
- A dental examination can detect deterioration in fillings, crowns, and restorations.
- We may spot root cavities (decay on the root
of your child’s teeth) which are exposed due
to decay or receding gums.
- Close inspection can reveal and even identify the early warning signs of oral cancer.
- We may find new decay under the gumline or hidden under existing fillings- two places you just can’t see!
- Your child’s teeth may have hairline fractures or signs of enamel erosion.
- We can diagnose an impacted wisdom tooth that is ready to make its presence known, although your child may not feel it yet.
- The onset of gum disease, called gingivitis in
its early phase, often goes undetected by patients. We can check for any tell-tale signs so that you can take action to prevent its progression toward periodontitis.
Let’s talk about Care Credit…………..
Part of our job as your dental care provider is to try and work with you to ensure that your personal financial circumstances do not interfere with your child’s dental health care decisions.
Families with limited or non-existent dental insurance are often faced with difficult choices which can exclude much needed dental procedures. This is why we recommend Care Credit, an affordable payment program that has a unique no-interest payment plan. Care Credit enables health care providers, including dentists, to offer flexible payment options to cover many costs that many insurance plans currently don’t. With Care Credit, you can pay for treatment over time without any up-front payment required. There are no up-front costs, or annual fees, no prepayment penalty, and the application
process is quick and easy. Care Credit offers monthly payment plans to meet almost every need. The No Interest Payment Plan requires minimum monthly payments, and allows you to avoid paying any interest charges if you pay your balance in full within the specified time period.
With Care Credit you can focus on what’s most important- scheduling your
child’s dental care right away. Ask us for a Care Credit application….
