The www.nohoartsdistrict.com motto should be “NoHo is only as great as its people.”
We like to highlight local NoHo businesses that stand out for quality service and community spirit. NoHo Dental Group fits that description. Patient comfort, strong dentist-patient relationships and superior results are the goals of NoHo Dental Group. They believe in supporting the NoHo community by participating in all types of neighborhood events. Today, we interviewed Dr. Bijan Afar, owner of NoHo Dental Group.
Why did you select the NoHo Arts District to locate your center?
In early 2009, we found an old abandoned warehouse for lease on Chandler Blvd. with great lease rates. When we looked into the area we realized we loved its energetic 'up and coming' vibe, and with a new Metro station being built across the street and lots of new shops, restaurants and cool modern apartment buildings being erected nearby- we felt this was where we needed to be! We completely renovated the old warehouse and turned it into a state of the art dental and health facility and opened our doors in 2010.
What sets you apart from other dental centers?
We are a very unique MULTI-SPECIALTY dental group which means that patients can address all their dental needs under one roof instead of having to be referred from place to place for various procedures. In other words, not only do we perform General & Cosmetic Dentistry, but we also have top rated specialists that can address all dental needs, including Orthodontics, Endodontics (Root Canals), Periodontics (Gums & Dental Implants), and Prosthodontics.
Could you give us some tips on how to care for our teeth?
The best way to care for your teeth is to brush and floss daily, visit your dentist 2x/year for exam & cleanings, and avoid sugary and/or acidic foods.
Many of our local residents are performing artists and their teeth are very important to them especially how to keep them white. What whitening services do you have and what whitening services should they avoid?
We offer both the powerful one-hour in-office teeth whitening treatment, as well as, the milder take-home whitening kits. Teeth whitening is a matter of personal choice and the type we recommend will depend on the patient's enamel condition and tolerance to sensitivity- as teeth whitening treatments may cause tooth sensitivity in some people. Substances such as coffee/tea, red wine, and tobacco do cause yellowing and so we urge those with staining concerns to avoid such substances.
