The skills he attained from this program enables him to treat patients with joint dysfunctions & pain, rehabilitate & reconstruct full mouths, and perform complex dentistry in the most minimally invasive and most conservative modalities also known as Biomimetic Dentistry.
Biomimetic Dentistry is a very tooth-conservative approach to fixing damaged teeth. It is a scientifically proven technique that focuses on the correct bonding and sealing of broken or decayed teeth in a way that copies nature. This means that more of your natural tooth is preserved during every dental procedure at our office. The best dentistry (the dentistry that will be better for your mouth long term) is also the least invasive dentistry. This is the philosophy behind Biomimetic dentistry and Dr. Shayesteh's approach to helping you achieve your best smile. Because we perform minimally invasive procedures, you experience less pain and discomfort, longer-lasting & more esthetically pleasing restorations, and an overall healthier mouth.
Dr. Shayesteh is a husband and father. His lovely wife and son are what makes him smile. He is a devoted family man and enjoys spending time with both of their families.
