Southern California native, Dr. Saeid Mohtashami moved to Las Vegas with a simple mission—to put “a smile on people’s faces.” Now a Vegas resident for over 10 years with a thriving practice, All Bright Dental; his patients are now dazzling everyone with pearly white grins.
The cosmetics dentist came upon his calling when doing volunteer work at a hospital’s internal dental department. Providing oral health care to medically compromised children inspired enthusiasm for dentistry and its comprehensive benefits.
In Orange County, Calif., Dr. Mohtashami received his Bachelor of Science in Chemistry at the University of California, Irvine and completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery at the School of Dentistry at the University of Southern California. He received further specialty training at the renowned Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, where he learned the art and science of cosmetic, reconstructive and neuromuscular dentistry.
According to Dr. Mohtashami, approximately 150 million Americans are missing an average of 10 to 15 teeth. Possible causes include anxiety or dental phobias preventing patients from visiting their dentist or a lack of access to proper dental care over several years. He shares that many patients tend to ignore what they don’t see or when they don’t feel any pain, thus leaving potential dental problems untreated.
“A good, healthy body comes from a good, healthy mouth,” Dr. Mohtashami advised. The cosmetics dentist considers healthy gums to be the foundation to good oral health and helps patients make the connection between dental care and their overall health. He explained that internal medical problems can sometimes be directly derived from dental issues.
Now, with 15 years of experience and thousands of tooth restorations, the dentist has found his niche. Specializing in implant dentistry, Dr. Mohtashami has placed hundreds of dental implants at All Bright Dental. He personally performs the entire procedure from start to finish for each of his patients. His extensive cosmetic and restoration training has become a tremendous asset when placing dental implants. He is able to assess how the implant will effectively fit into a patient’s overall smile. It is with great pride that the dentist uses only actual client photos on his website and promotional materials for his dental practice.
According to Dr. Mohtashami, one of the most important medical advances greatly aiding his practice has been the development of IV sedation, which gently and temporarily puts patients to sleep to allow his team to perform implants and other major dental surgeries. Patients awake in comfort with the procedure finished and have little, if any, memory of the treatment; a win-win for the client and the dentist.
When at home, Dr. Mohtashami puts a smile on the faces of his three daughters both as a dad and their coach in soccer. The dentist also enjoys reading and traveling in his free time.
