A Note from Dr. Mojdeh Shayestehfar D.D.S.

My name is Mojdeh Shayestehfar, but my patients know me as Dr. Shay. With more than twenty years of experience practicing dentistry, I still look forward to going to work every single day! I am grateful for the patients who have trusted me as their clinician and shared their lives with me. I feel extremely fortunate to have a career as a cosmetic dentist in Beverly Hills where I am able to connect in such meaningful ways with such a diverse group of people. Visiting the dentist should be a pleasant experience. It is my goal to make it so! In addition to helping you achieve optimum oral health, my goal is to make you feel happy and at ease whenever you visit my Prosthodonics practice in Los Angeles. When you enter my office, I want you to feel as comfortable and welcome as a guest in my home. While many doctors view their patients as simply “clients,” I view each of my patients as a member of my Linden Dental family. It is my privilege to provide you, my patients, with the very best oral healthcare. At the end of the day, when you smile brightly, SO DO I !

Softie and Parker Shay, D.D.S. (Dogs of Dental Service)

One of the reasons that many people avoid seeking dental care is dentophobia – a fear of dentistry...

sofie

This phobia usually stems from childhood and people carry it all their adult lives. As a result they don’t seek preventive care which ultimately leads to more complicated issues that require more extensive, involved and expensive treatments. To overcome this fear, patients often seek some sort of sedation. However, there are risks and complications associated with sedation as well as the added expense.

It is a scientific fact that pets can reduce anxiety levels, lower blood pressure and decrease stress. You can read more here:

Pet therapy is an organic, alternative way to reduce anxiety in dental-phobic patients. Patients do not need someone to bring them to the office or take them home, there is no recovery time for sedation, and no risk of overdose, except for puppy love. It is free and above all it is fun! 

Softie and Parker , Therapy Dogs. They are our adorable Labradoodles who love to cuddle with our patients to calm them down during dental procedures. They will stay with you until you are done with your treatment. They won’t be offended if you are not a dog person, they will hang in the reception area and relax until their next patient comes in. If you would like to have Softie or Parker accompany you during your treatment, just let us know and we will reserve them for you.

What Our Clients Say About Us

    Dr. Shay was recommended to me by a friend and I'm so lucky to have her as my dentist. She is amazing. She approaches her practice with special attention to detail while maintaining the highest level of professionalism. She is a true clinician and an educator. 

    Dr. Shay did my entire mouth rehab and built my bite up while delivering an aesthetically appealing smile that improved my overall look. She literally made my smile look amazing and solved my constricted bite. She's also a prosthodontist so she actually certified to address complex cases which I had.

    I highly recommend her. You will be in safe hands with Dr. Shay.

    Kathy Shank

    I was referred to Dr. Shay & traveled all the way from Canada to see her for major cosmetic dental work. Dr. Shay (and her incredible team) were efficient, talented, professional, genuine & very kind. She is a perfectionist & completely transformed my smile, being respectful of my time to keep travel to/from Canada reasonable and accommodating of my situation. Softie & Max were a great addition to the whole experience & I would highly recommend Dr. Shay for any of your dental needs.
