The confidence that comes with a beautiful smile is an indescribable feeling. Your smile says a lot about who you are and gives you the freedom to create the ideal first impression. Thanks to the advancements in dental technology and procedures, even those who were not genetically blessed with perfect teeth can now have a celebrity smile. Dr. Sam Saleh of ORA Dentistry Spa in Beverly Hills knows exactly how to turn this dream into a reality.
So many flaws in our teeth can now be easily and quickly corrected with cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening, dental implants, cosmetic bonding, veneers, Invisalign, and tooth restoration. In absolutely no time, you can have shiny pearly whites that will make you look years younger.
For years, Dr. Saleh has been giving people the dentistry spa treatment, a concept that he himself created to provide people with a relaxing and enjoyable experience at the dentist. It’s no wonder then that celebrities such as Tyra Banks, Nene Leaks, and Donald Faison all trust Dr. Saleh with their teeth. So naturally we were very excited to learn that Dr. Saleh will be making regular visits to the Middle East and bringing with him the cutting edge procedures and care that made him such a success in Los Angeles. eniGma’s Editor-in-Chief, Yasmine Shihata, got the chance to ask Dr. Saleh about his passion for dentistry and his future plans.
What do you like most about your job?
The ability to change someone’s life.
What has been your most fulfilling professional experience so far?
There have been so many fulfilling experiences; however the most fulfilling was giving a smile to a young woman of 33 who had not been out in public all her adult life because she was so embarrassed of her teeth. After performing extensive work on her whole mouth, she regained her confidence, was able to go to college and then went on to get married and now has a family of three children. I feel immense joy to know I played a part in that.
What are your plans for the Middle East?
I plan to visit the Middle East once a month to perform same day dentistry using CAD/CAM technology. It’s an easy and convenient method of providing high quality cosmetic dentistry to my patients.
What do you think will be the most popular procedures in the region?
Same day porcelain veneers will be the most popular procedure. This fast and easy treatment will allow me to modify the shape, colour, and position of the teeth all on the same day.
What are your hopes and plans for the new year?
I look forward to launching my concierge dental services, as this marries my two passions in life: dentistry and travel.
When will you be heading to the Middle East?
We are already scheduling appointments for the first quarter of 2015.
How much time do you plan to spend in the region?
I will initially be based in Dubai for 3 days a month.
What would be the prices?
Porcelain veneers vary in price depending on the complexity of the case; however, the range is $2,000 to $4,000 per tooth.
