Check-Ups & Cleanings

Routine visits at either our Long Beach or Arcadia location are crucial for patients of all ages. In fact, Dr. Nashed is happy to start seeing children when they’re as young as six months old. 

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Snoring may seem like just an annoying habit, but it can actually be an indicator of a much more serious health condition known as sleep apnea. Thankfully, a customized snoreguard from our team provides much-needed relief.

Sedation Dentistry

Children often feel scared or anxious about visiting the dentist. Our team is happy to provide sedation dentistry in these cases helping your little one feel relaxed and at ease as we treat their smile.

Digital X-Rays

Keeping up with the latest in dental technology is important to Dr. Nashed. Digital X-rays, scanners, impressions and more allow our team to provide smoother, safer treatment. We also use an iTero scanner to efficiently and accurately create a digital impression of your mouth. 

Pediatric Care

As a specialist in pediatric care, Dr. Nashed provides valuable services to your little ones that you won’t find at just any general dentist. We want to put them on the path towards lifelong oral health and happiness!

Athletic Sportsguards

Athletic activities that involve any kind of contact lead to significant oral damage. That’s why our team strongly recommends wearing personalized sportsguards whenever participating.

TMJ/Bruxism Therapy with Nightguards

Teeth grinding (also known as bruxism) causes serious consequences if left untreated for too long. Dr. Nashed provides an oral appliance known as a nightguard to minimize these damaging effects.

Soft Tissue Laser

Instead of the traditional scalpel, our Arcadia and Long Beach practices use a state-of-the-art soft tissue laser for periodontal treatment making the process more conservative and comfortable.


When wisdom teeth begin to erupt from the gum line, a flap of soft tissue is sometimes caught over the tooth. This tissue is called an operculum and when it becomes inflamed or infected, removal may be necessary. The surgical removal is called an operculectomy and is safer, faster and more comfortable than ever using soft tissue lasers.


Everyone is born with a small amount of connective tissue attaching the tongue to the floor of the mouth. In rare cases, patients are born with excessive tissue making it more difficult to speak clearly, chew or swallow. These patients are treated with a frenectomy, the minimal removal of tissue to allow more movement.
