Pediatric Dentistry Of Pleasant Hill
My kids LOVE coming to this dentist. As soon as I walked in I was greeted by the front office staff. I was offered coffee while we waited (which I didn't even get to sip because they got me back right away.) The staff was very knowledgeable and the doctor was great. I will definitely be back again and I highly recommend this office.

So glad I found this great dental office for my children. All three of my kids, 4,6 and 12 love going to the dentist now. The dentist, Dr. Amybeth, is gentle, caring and very informative. She takes her time answering my wife and my questions at each visit. They are open on Saturdays which is great for us. Highly recommend!!

Smile Design
I was pleased to see Smile Design open near my home about two years ago. I wasn't very happy with my last dentist and decided to look around as I knew I was going to need more work as my fillings aged. I stopped by and talked with Maya, the Office Manager, and got a very good feeling about Smile Design. I noticed the high technology they use (digital xrays viewed immediately on a screen in front of you as an example) and the attractive surroundings. The office is well organized and very clean. I then decided to book my first visit and checkup. What I found was a very caring staff eager to make me comfortable and understand my needs. I was very pleasantly surprised. Dr. Basha is very down to earth and easy to talk with. He carefully showed me what he found while examining my teeth and discussed my general dental health. He then put together a written and clear-cut plan for dealing with my specific issues. We put a timeline together and began the work. I found Dr. Basha, and his dental assistants Courtney & Nancy, to be very professional, yet personable and caring. Dr. Basha is an extraordinarily gentle person and it shows up in his treatments. He is very concerned in your comfort and checks with you regularly to ensure your visit is pleasant. After taking care of my immediate needs, we developed a plan to improve the aesthetics of my teeth. We decided to use cosmetic veneers on my front teeth, which had been a source of embarrassment for years. I can't tell you how wonderful the difference is...had I realized how simple and affordable it was, I would have had them years ago. I can highly recommend Dr. Basha and Smile Design to you as a fabulous dental office. You won't be disappointed!
Tips & Advices
  • Pick Your Plan: Most people purchase three main varieties, usually through their employers.
    • An indemnity or fee-for-service plan means you'll have to pay for annual deductibles and co-insurance payments out of pocket.
    • A preferred provider organization is less costly, and you choose from a network of dentists. However, PPOs have some limitations and accompanying deductibles.
    • A dental health maintenance organization plan limits you to just a few choices of dentists, and one doctor handles all of your oral care needs. However, these HMO are usually much less costly.
  • PPO plans and dental HMOs work with only a select number of doctors. While that usually means fewer costs, it also means you have less choice in the dentist who can treat you Before purchasing the plan, you'll receive a list of dentists in each network. From there, you can then pick a plan with doctors who meet your standards and requirements.
  • When picking a plan, you need to look at just how much you'll pay for each and every service. For instance, some plans won't cover your fillings or X-rays, while others may charge more or less for a crown or tooth extraction. You don't want to be caught off-guard by unforeseen charges.
  • If you're truly comfortable with a dentist and you feel he or she can be an ally in your ongoing oral care regimen, then consider signing a plan to just keep that dentist available. That means potentially deal with costs and other insurance-related factors that you might have wanted to. If need be, you might be able to work with the dentist's office to address some of the plan-specific concerns.
  • Ask family, friends or colleagues for recommendations. They will be able to provide details about a dentist's demeanor, operating style and approach to patient care
  • Meet with any prospective dentists to ask about what treatments they perform most often, procedures they're not as familiar with, what accreditation they have or any organizations they belong to and how their offices handles insurance and payments.
  • Consider driving distance, location and office hours.
  • Check With Your State Board: The state board can outline what requirements your dentist must meet and offer information about any discrepancies in the their background and if he or she has faced any disciplinary actions.
  • Remember Your Angles - When brushing your teeth, always place the brush at a 45-degree angle..
  • Don't Forget the Tongue – Your tongue is the largest source of bacteria. Brush it front to back and don't forget the sides.
  • Floss Everyday - Each time you floss, have at least 18 inches of floss available. For optimal control, hold the floss between your thumbs and forefingers.
  • Watch What You Eat - Sugar, alcohol and coffee contain phosphorus. While some can prove beneficial, too much of this chemical can eat away at your teeth and gums.
  • Keep in Mind the Mouthwash - Mouthwash can be helpful if used to supplement proper brushing and flossing. Most mouthwash brands contain chlorine dioxide, a chemical that targets the majority of oral bacterial strains.
Yellow teeth are the result of a number of bad habits, mainly smoking, drinking too much coffee and improper nutrition. Many dentists will treat with a whitening procedure.
These painful bumps are the result of irritation to the soft tissue of your mouth. These sores can make brushing almost impossible. There are a number of different causes for sores, including anemia or a vitamin B-12 deficiency. Your doctor will have to examine the bump, find its cause and then develop a specific treatment plan, including the use of corticosteroids to reduce inflammation or antimicrobial mouthwash.
