At Lathrop Dental Center, the focus is on the individual—and doing what’s best for overall well-being. “I realize that my patients do not really enjoy the thought of having dental procedures completed, which is why I go the extra mile to ensure a comfortable experience,” says Dr. Lathrop. “We use the least-invasive procedures as often as possible, by investing in the highest level of equipment and technology.” They also offer IV sedation to make things as painless as possible.

The goal at Dental Illusions is to educate and inform the patient, giving them options and empowering them to make the right treatment choice for their needs. Dr. Saliba and Dr. Moukarim, as well as their professional staff, use the latest in dental materials, high tech equipment and modern techniques. They strive to consistently deliver high-quality dentistry with integrity and great customer service, in a friendly, compassionate and inviting atmosphere. Even with expertise in minimally invasive laser procedures and advanced aesthetic techniques, loyalty has come from relationships built with families and individuals through the years.

“No matter how impressive credentials may be, what matters most to patients is compassion and quality,” says Dr. Saliba. “When it comes down to it, we’re a family dental practice providing a warm and welcoming environment,” Dr. Moukarim adds.

While they enjoy creating complete smile make-overs, which have amazing outcomes, they focus just as much attention on the fundamentals of dental health. The doctors are skilled in procedures such as implant dentistry, Invisalign, sedation dentistry, laser dentistry, cosmetic smile make-overs and full-mouth reconstruction.

In addition, Drs. Saliba and Moukarim regularly see people that have not had treatment in many years, have problems getting numb, have severe phobias of the dentist and those with advanced dental problems. No matter what the procedure, Drs. Moukarim, Saliba and their staff at Dental Illusions are committed to banishing dental phobias and creating an outstanding, relationship-centered practice.

The doctors also do not believe that you should have to pay to find out what’s wrong. They offer free consultations.
