Barsoum Dental is dedicated to helping you and your family maintain excellent oral and dental health. Our practice recently added a talented orthodontist to the staff, so we are now able to provide high-quality orthodontic care to residents of Chino, Chino Hills, Upland and neighboring communities. When it comes to braces, we are the professionals to trust.
Our office provides braces, Six Month Smiles, Invisalign and other popular orthodontic products to our patients. Common issues that can be corrected by braces and orthodontia include:
The lower teeth are positioned too far forward, or the upper teeth are positioned too far back.
The upper front teeth stick out too far; this is also known as buck teeth.
When the back teeth bite together, there's a space between the biting surfaces of the side or front teeth.
The upper teeth fail to come down slightly in front of the lower teeth.
The dental ridge is unable to accommodate all of the teeth.
Teeth are missing, or there are large gaps between the teeth.
If you are an adult (15 years and older) with crooked or spaced teeth and you're not looking for a major alteration to your bite, this could be the solution for you! Most adults ARE candidates for Six Month Smiles™. Some benefits of Six Month Smiles™ braces over traditional braces are:
A: The Six Month Smiles™ technique employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely. The key components of the treatment are the use of special nickel titanium wires and a primary focus of moving the teeth that show when you smile.
A: No! Dr. Maher Barsoum uses tooth-colored braces that are barely visible. The wires are usually tooth-colored as well. These are nothing like metal braces!
A: Six Month Smiles™ use low force to move teeth more comfortably. Many people think that the accelerated treatment means simply “tightening” regular braces to get the teeth moving, but that is not true. Six Month Smiles™ utilizes standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.
A: Yes, as with any teeth-straightening treatment a retainer is necessary to maintain the straighter position of your teeth. If you don’t want to wear a removable retainer, Dr. Maher Barsoum can place abonded retainer for you. There are a variety of options that you can choose from according to your personal preference and situation.
A: There really is no catch. Call one of Dr. Maher Barsoum's offices, conveniently located in Chino and Upland Ca, and schedule an appointment for a free consultation.
Dr. Andrew Lee was a technology geek growing up so he decided to become an engineer, obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science and Engineering from UCLA. After getting braces as an adult and experiencing firsthand how a new smile can have a profound positive effect, he decided to change careers. He went to dental school at UCSF, followed by orthodontics residency at Columbia University.
Dr. Lee is a huge San Francisco Giants fan (having grown up in San Francisco). He strives for excellent care and communication with all of his patients, especially Dodgers fans, because wants to give them something to smile about.
"I am a regular patient but had to come in same day as an emergency when I developed severe pain. They were able to fit me into the schedule with no issue. I was treated amazingly well by all of the staff. I was very nervous when they told me I would need the first phase of a root canal, but they reassured me and the procedure was pain-free. The doctor and his staff are very attentive and are concerned with making sure you are comfortable at all times. Couldn't recommend them more, they are all great from Vicky up front to the MD and all of his staff."
I don't normally make reviews, but I feel compelled after having such a great experience. I suffer from dental phobia/anxiety. I mean it is so severe that I have to take valume before my visits. well, I use to... My root canal went so smoothly that I was able to sit through my next appointment on my own. I don't think words can explain how good the Dr. and his staff are at making you comfortable and at ease. This is definitely the place for someone who has had bad experiences in the past.
I had been with another dental office, but saw Dr. Barsoum's office for a specialty (Endo). My first interaction was with Dr. Barsoum; let me tell you.. this man is very kind, caring, and so professional! I really like how he goes over and beyond for the patient experience. Dr. Edalat is also a class act. He is so gentle with his hands. He performed a root canal on me.. I promise you, I felt nothing, and I even went to work that same night for 12 hours with no pain meds or issues. I also liked how Dr. Barsoum PERSONALLY calls you, the patient, the evening of your visit to see how every thing went, to see if you have any concerns or are in pain. That says a lot! Most doctors don't care what happens to you after you leave their office, but Dr. Barsoum does, and I highly respect him for that. I recommend Dr. Barsoum and Dr. Edalat for all of your dental needs. These doctors are amazing!
"The staff are wonderful and friendly. Dr. Barsoum is the most caring Dentist I have ever met. I went in for two fillings and a root canal. I was expecting it to be very painful, but to my surprise it was not. Dr. Barsoum took really good care of me when I was there, and he even makes "checkup" call to make sure I'm doing fine. Overall, my experience there was just WONDERFUL!"
I had to have a root canal re-done that another dentist did incorrectly. Dr. Edalat made sure I was comfortable at all times. He was done before I knew it and didn't feel any pain at all. The entire staff are wonderful.
