Pinnacle Peak Dental Care

GET THE SMILE YOU DESERVE!

Dr. Holly Lerma knows what it’s like not to love your smile, though you would never know that by looking at her. This Texas-and-Kansas raised beauty has experienced her fair share of dental issues and undergone quite a bit of dental work herself. Perhaps that’s why her passion for helping her patients achieve their own knockout smile is so prevalent.

Dr. Lerma and her husband, Ricardo moved to the Valley in 2007 “to enjoy the beautiful weather and the beautiful people.” Since then, Pinnacle Peak DentalCare has been in the same location on Pinnacle Peak Road and Dr. Lerma has been dedicated to ensuring her patients are 110 percent satisfied with their treatments.

“I have always enjoyed taking care of people. And I want to help my patients understand that they are beautiful just the way they are,” Lerma says, adding that she encourages people to look at their teeth before considering plastic surgery. “Often people feel they want to look like a celebrity or someone else. They don’t need to change themselves with plastic surgery. They can improve upon their existing beauty with dental work and achieve the best version of themselves. We can help them get to that next level through general dentistry or more specialized cosmetic dentistry, if needed.”

Check out our state of the art dental laboratory we use for ALL restorations, Lafyette Dental Laboratory! (lafayettedentallab.com) Rick is a Master Ceramist AACD certified, and has been doing quality work for over 25 years. It is your body – you only want the BEST!

Pinnacle Peak Dental also offers the latest technologies, including teeth whitening, such as GLO laser-assisted whitening which is nearly pain free even for those with sensitive teeth. “It’s a whole new generation of whitening your teeth — it doesn’t have to hurt anymore,” Lerma adds. She also notes that even technologies with straightening via Invisalign have come a long way in the past few years.

Dr. Lerma prides herself on the fact that she and her staff work hard to educate their patients on which procedures are available and which they recommend. “I take customer service very personally. We are constantly trying to better ourselves. We are about integrity and going above and beyond for our patients.” Lerma says that she and her staff aim to make patients feel happy and comfortable during each visit, adding, “It’s about our patients’ needs, not our own.”

To that end, Dr. Lerma extends herself beyond regular office hours for emergencies and she loves working with patients for a big event such as a reunion or a wedding. She says, “We want to make your knockout smile come to life. However we can take that journey with you, we’ll be with you every step of the way.”

Creating Healthy, Beautiful Smiles at Winning Smiles!

Winning Smiles Dentistry of Glendale is conveniently located at 20165 North 67th Avenue, Suite 103, where Dr. Ghasem K. Darian provides patients with expertise based on his 24 years as a dental professional, and a promise to make customer service his number one priority.

Dr. Darian has been practicing dentistry in Phoenix since 1992. He has been operating Winning Smiles Dentistry of Glendale, where he has been successfully helping patients with their oral health needs by offering a comfortable atmosphere, team of highly skilled, professional periodontists and hygienists, and friendly office staff since 2005.

To create a calming environment in which his patients can relax, minimize their anxieties and have a more pleasant experience, Dr. Darian plays music or television during visits. He utilizes the most state-of-the-art technologies — such as digital dental X-rays (with very low radiation) and hospital-grade sterilization equipment — to ensure each visit is comfortable, safe and comprehensive.

Dr. Darian uses an innovative computer-guided anesthesia system, a mechanism that can precisely apply anesthesia to a single tooth or to the whole mouth and is practically painless. Another technology he offers is a dental laser used for both hard and soft-tissue laser procedures. He says, “The lasers are precise, they can reduce bleeding and pain, and eliminate that traditional drill sound, sometimes even eliminating the need for anesthesia.” These lasers can make procedures — from decay removal and root canals to gum and bone surgeries — less invasive, and with quicker and less painful recovery times.

The benefits of preventative dental care through routine checkups are numerous, and Dr. Darian is astute with regard to informing his patients about the importance of scheduling check-ups. He says, “Regular visits can reduce costly expenses of more complicated procedures for it allows us to catch a problem in its early stages when it is easier to treat. For example, periodontal disease is one that can go unnoticed by a patient because it is usually painless until the very advanced stages. Even a cavity can advance from a simple filling to a much more complex situation if not properly treated right away.”

Winning Smiles Dentistry offers cosmetic dentistry options including both in-office and at-home teeth whitening procedures, porcelain veneers, Invisalign, crowns and white fillings, as well as regular general dentistry procedures such as dentures, partials, root canals, retainers, children’s dentistry, sealants and more.

Dr. Darian believes that providing the most state-of-the-art procedures to his patients is essential, and he understands the importance of a caring, experienced staff and a patient dentist relationship built on trust. “We are a thorough yet conservative practice focused on the care of our patients — we are continually trying to improve both patient care and customer service,” he says. “We like to discuss all options available to each patient and to enlighten them on the advantages and the disadvantages of those options so that our patients can make their best informed decision.”

Winning Smiles Dentistry is currently welcoming new patients. Visit www.drdarian.com or www.winningsmilesaz.com, or call 623-255-3602 today to schedule an appointment — your smile will thank you.

No Insurance? No Problem?

Going to the dentist evokes great fear in a great many people. Studies show between 60 and 75 percent of us are scared of dental visits as much as anything else. There’s even a word for it: dentophobia.

But at MOD Dentistry of Scottsdale, Dr. Preeti Singh and her staff ensure a positive experience that is tranquil, educational and caring.

“When you walk in the door, I know it sounds weird to say, it’s a calm, relaxing place,” said Mary Mullins, practice manager. “Dr. Singh’s energy and manner is very calm, very soothing, and it really helps patients.”

Many aspects are geared to putting people at ease. From the waiting room’s comfortable chairs to the ceramic floor tiles to the open spaces, it has an almost spa-like quality.

For those without dental insurance, MOD Dentistry offers an in-house plan designed to save money and keep patients motivated to come for their twice-yearly preventive visits.

Then there is Dr. Singh, a graduate of New York University College of Dentistry who has been practicing for more than 10 years. Mullins said her unhurried demeanor helps puts people at ease.

“She has a way of speaking with patients. She takes her time, explains things,” Mullins said. “Sometimes, dentists are rushed and have other procedures waiting. She doesn’t do that. There’s no sense of hurried energy. Very calm and relaxing.”

A goal is to have patients walk away feeling like they understand why a procedure is, was or will be done. Dr. Singh takes the time to explain, pulling out the X-rays or calling up information on a television screen that sits above the dental chair.

And those screens really help calm a patient. If a trip to the dentist seems like the worst thing in the world, a trip to MOD Dentistry resembles a trip to one’s living room, for those screens are connected to the outside world, so people can watch Netflix, regular TV, YouTube or many other musical and video options. There are also in-house cameras that allow Dr. Singh to illustrate in real time something happening in a patient’s mouth.

Speaking of procedures, MOD Dentistry offers different types, from basic services such as cleanings, fillings and root canals to options such as Invisalign, laser dentistry and veneers.

Mullins said Dr. Singh especially likes cosmetic dentistry and told a story about a patient who had a large gap between her two front teeth that bothered her for years. After Dr. Singh’s treatment, the gap was gone, no one could tell, and the woman returned for a follow-up visit with tears of gratitude in her eyes.

Another uncommon procedure Dr. Singh performs is pinhole gum surgery to treat receding gums. She numbs the area and then makes one or two tiny pinholes in gums, then adjusts the gums over the exposed tooth roots. It’s like a facelift for the gums.

Mullins has seen plenty of patients lose their fears of the dentist thanks to going to MOD Dentistry.

“It can be a spot in someone’s life that (MOD Dentistry) can affect them positively and change their life,” she said. “It starts with the top. That’s how Dr. Singh wants to practice. You don’t really find that.”
