This month, we’d like to introduce you to Delta Dental dentist Dr. Haleh Bazargan of Sonoran Desert Dentistry. The Scottsdale dental office offers comprehensive dental exams and a wide array of cosmetic, preventive, general and specialized services.
Do you brush and floss as much as you recommend?
Yes, I do.
Electric or manual toothbrush?
Electric. I love Oral B because the smaller attachment allows you to reach the small nooks and crannies.
Which celebrity has the best smile?
Julia Roberts. Her smile looks very natural. She has a big, wide pearly-white smile.
If you could tell patients to stop doing one thing, what would it be?
Remember not to brush with lots of force and a softer toothbrush is preferable over a firm toothbrush.
What is the best dental advice you’ve ever received?
Tooth stain prevention starts with swishing your mouth immediately after having teeth-staining liquids such as red wines, coffee, tea, etc.
What is the best thing about being a Delta Dental dentist?
Delta Dental makes it very easy and convenient to verify benefit information through the website, which allows the provider to treat the patient in a timely manner.
What is your favorite dental joke?
A patient scheduled for their very first crown prep arrived wearing a crown on their head.
If you were stuck on a desert island, what three items would you bring?
I would bring matches to start a fire, fireworks to light in hopes of attracting a rescue team, and my cell phone. Hopefully I would have cell phone service so I could contact a rescue team!
