Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Mekari "As a cosmetic dentist, I believe not only in treating the obvious and getting patients out of pain, but also in giving them something to smile about. That comes from cosmetic smile design for smile enhancement, and facial Aesthetics to improve the appearance of the face. Whether it is Botox to soften or temporarily remove facial lines and wrinkles or Juvederm to augment facial loss of volume. To your health and beauty!"
