WEST HILLS, Calif., Aug. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Pasha Hakimzadeh and Dr. Ben Reyhani of West Hills Smiles are on a mission. As the place for an outstanding general, reconstructive and cosmetic dentist in Woodland Hills-adjacent West Hills clinic is known throughout the greater Los Angeles area for the outstanding quality of their work in their concierge-style office and the gentleness of their approach. It's also widely recognized as the place to get restorative dentistry or a smile makeover that won't leave you frowning with discomfort.

Both Dr. Hakimzadeh and Dr. Reyhani understand that surveys show that as many as 75% of the United States public admits to having some fear of dentists, with a smaller number who appear to have an out-and-out dental phobia. They are out to change all of that with a combination of a friendly attitude and the latest in dental technology to make sure that patients know that their office is the place for a stress-free visit that helps patients get the most from their smiles.

It starts with a friendly and warm attitude and the deluxe accommodations at West Hills Smiles that many patients describe as concierge dentistry. Studies have shown that people feel less stress when they perceive their dentist as a friendly presence, and these two dentists pride themselves on their affable and comforting chair-side manner. 

In fact, if past visits to other dentists have been difficult for you and are making you hesitant to schedule an appointment, Dr. Hakimzadeh and Dr. Reyhani are happy to take phone calls to discuss concerns or fears that may have arisen in the past. The fact of the matter is that not all dentists are the same. If performed properly, the majority of dental procedures should be reasonably comfortable events and the doctors will be happy to assuage any fears potential patients might have.

Dr. Hakimzadeh and Dr. Reyhani also understand the importance of a calm and pleasant atmosphere. That's why they provide such amenities as hot scented towels, a beverage station, blankets and pillows, free Wi-Fi and even flatscreen TVs patients in their dental rooms. And nothing says "calm" quite like an aquarium, which the staff of West Hills Smiles has found to be a popular feature with children and adults alike.

The fact of the matter is that dental health is a crucial factor in our overall health and an attractive smile is one of our most effective calling cards both in our personal and professional lives. Apprehension about visiting the dentist shouldn't stop anyone from making sure their teeth are as healthy and attractive as possible.
