"We go above and beyond dental care by concentrating on the patients' overall health and well-being." Cosmetic dentistry is Dr. Alani's focus but her office incorporates all phases of general dentistry from teeth cleaning to smile makeovers. She is a fitness enthusiast and enjoys swimming, skiing, and weight training. She incorporates her passion into her practice by conducting routine check-ups so patients remain in good health.

The Million Dollar Smile: Changing Lives with Cosmetic Dentistry

Dr. Alani has also contributed to a book which is now an Amazon bestseller -- available at Barnes and Noble and Amazon!

Her chapter discusses affordable cosmetic dentistry options and is very informative so the average consumer can understand the available cosmetic treatments without breaking the bank. In it, Dr. Alani covers ways you can improve your smile even if you are on a financial stretch and which services will get you the best results on limited funds.

Dr. Alani was chosen as one of 12 dentists throughout the United States to contribute to the incredibly informative and educational book so that dental patients can learn more about the various cosmetic procedures and what they will do for the overall health and well-being.

As a dental patient, you have a right to know what procedures are best for you, the risks and benefits of any dental procedure, the cost of all procedures, and if insurance will cover all or part of the expense. This book was created to help you understand all the options you have when faced with choices about your oral care.

Dr. Alani says her hope is that The Million Dollar Smile: Changing Lives with Cosmetic Dentistry will help you understand the complex world of cosmetic dentistry so that you can make informed decisions about your oral treatments.
