How Nova Dental Partners Restores a Broken Tooth

September 6th, 2017

For more than 20 years, Nova Dental Partners has been one of the leading cosmetic dental offices in the Alexandria and Woodbridge communities. Using state-of-the-art technology and modern materials, Drs. Kambiz and Kamran Tavakkoli can correct missing, chipped, discolored, or crooked teeth easier than ever before.

The concept of a "filling" is replacing and restoring your tooth structure that is damaged due to decay or fracture with a material. One of our patients recently came to us to restore her front tooth which had broken. Understandably, she was very anxious to get this fixed promptly. Another concern she had was whether the restoration would match her existing tooth. These concerns are very normal and the good news is that with today's advancements, you no longer have to suffer the embarrassment of an unsightly chipped tooth. There is now state-of-the-art composite resin material that can be matched to your tooth color.

You might be surprised to hear that this entire procedure took only 20 minutes and didn’t required numbing! As you can see from the results, our patient was thrilled with the results and so were we.

Nova Dental Partners and MOM Volunteers Treat People in Need at Special Olympics in Richmond

June 22nd, 2017

On June 9th and 10th, fifteen hundred champions went for gold in bocce, swimming, softball, track & field, bowling, and tennis showcasing some of Richmond’s top talent during Opening Ceremony of the Special Olympics at the University of Richmond.

Dr. Kamran Tavakkoli and Dr. Kambiz Tavakkoli and members of the team from Nova Dental Partners went to the University of Richmond on June 10th, where they volunteered dental services as part of The Mission of Mercy program. The Mission of Mercy (MOM) projects are conducted in identified, underserved areas of Virginia where there are not enough dental practitioners to adequately address the oral health needs of the community.

“We had such a great day in Richmond helping the local community with their oral health needs. Community service is our social responsibility and we are committed to contributing our time and services to our community whenever possible. I’m personally very proud to be a part of this wonderful program. ” said Dr. Kamran Tavakkoli.

Dr. Kamran and Dr. Kambiz instructed and performed extractions and composite restorations.  They also spent a lot of time screening patients to customize individual treatment plans. The hygiene team provided assistance with cleanings and fluoride treatments.  The Nova Dental Partners team and MOM volunteers treated approximately 200 people that were in need of dental work.

About The Mission of Mercy

“An estimated 3.8 million Virginians - more than 47% of our total population - do not have dental insurance according to the Virginia Health Care Foundation. Sixty-nine (69) localities in the Commonwealth have no dental safety net provider. Of the 66 localities that do, many of the clinics operate on a part-time basis and are overwhelmed by the number of calls for help. Without access to affordable dental care, many people -- especially those who are low-income, underinsured, disabled or seniors -- are left to suffer pain, discomfort, and embarrassment with nowhere else to turn. To address the overwhelming need for access to free oral health care, Dr. Terry Dickinson, executive director of the Virginia Dental Association, created the Mission of Mercy (MOM) program in 2000 to provide high-quality dental care for underserved Virginians. The MOM program operates mobile clinics in strategic locations across the State, providing preventive, restorative, and surgical dental treatments to more than 4,000 low-income individuals each year."
