Arta Vakhshoori Dr. Vakhshoori (“Dr. V.”) grew up surrounded by medical doctors as family members and realized early on that "good health" was her mission in life. She chose to go to Loma Linda University due to their whole-body approach (Integrative) to dentistry. As experts agree now, “health of the mouth is a window to the whole-body health”.

Dentistry, like other sciences, is continuously improving and Dr. V.’s passion is to be part of the group of dentists who are at the leading edge of improving her field. She is in communication with leading health practitioners in Micro-Dentistry, Biological and Laser Dentistry, as well as related medicine worldwide.

Since each individual has a different susceptibility to cavities, Dr.V conducts carries risk assessment tests (Saliva test) and follows up with a cavity prevention protocol fit for each individual with strong emphasis on nutrition; since she also believes that your food should be your medicine.
