Q & A with Dr. Mirkhan

What is the most rewarding part about being a dentist?

"You see something is broken—when you fix that, you see the difference between what they were and what they are now. It is so rewarding to see someone going from hiding their smile to someone who has teeth, shows their smile, and can be happy."

What would you say is your dental philosophy?

"Number one – the total health of the patient. A patient once presented to our office with extremely poor oral hygiene, loose teeth and many hopeless teeth. In other words, his oral health was really bad. He had come for a fourth consultation after visiting three other offices. Nobody had informed this patient about his poor oral condition and its impact on his overall health.

After explaining the patient's diagnosis and recommended treatment, he took appropriate steps toward his dental health. This resulted in achieving overall good health, which ultimately reduced the number of medications he had to take. At our office, we want to help the patient understand what it is that we're going to do so that they can be ready for each step of the treatment.

We are very thorough. I like to give the patient their options to see what suits the individual – from the highest-end down to more affordable solutions. I don't want to make a decision for the patient, I want to inform them of all options available to them and I want to make sure they are educated fully in order to make an informed decision about their dental and overall body health."

Tell me a little bit about yourself personally.

"I initially had a degree in Fine Arts before becoming a dentist. You could consider me to be an artist, which I think gives me an opportunity to serve my patients better. Making aesthetic changes in a person's smile is very critical. It's very important to me to achieve the most beautiful, natural smile. When I am performing cosmetic dentistry, I can envision what I'm going to do. Because aesthetic perfection is so important to me, I only work with the best dental technicians that provide the best aesthetic results."
