The Art and Science of Comprehensive Dental Care

By Sharon Taylor

Special Advertorial Feature

Few fields have enjoyed the level of technological advancement that has revolutionized dentistry in recent years. Today’s highly trained dental specialists can literally transform a person’s smile by offering everything from tooth whitening and porcelain veneers to full-mouth restoration. And in the midst of this revolution, only one practice in the Coachella Valley offers the full spectrum of state-of-the-art services at one impressive facility. Desert Dental Specialty Group, under the direction of Dr. Robert McLachlan, provides comprehensive care in the areas of aesthetic, reconstructive, and implant dentistry.

“What we offer is a multidisciplinary practice under one roof,” explains Dr. McLachlan. “This saves patients time, travel and the cost of multiple office visits at different facilities, which is obviously in their best interest.”

Dr. McLachlan established Desert Dental Specialty Group in 1978, and the practice rapidly developed a reputation for responsive, quality service and complete dental care. At Desert Dental Specialty Group, you can have confidence in your level of care — you will receive diagnosis and treatment from experienced, certified or board-qualified professionals. For years, their patients have been referring friends and acquaintances after being impressed by the accurate diagnosis and thorough explanation of treatment options they experienced with Dr. McLachlan and his dental team.

Dental Implants: A Modern Approach

Missing teeth can cause embarrassment, discomfort, and inconvenience. While dental implants have been around for decades, today’s technology and materials allow Dr. McLachlan to treat patients much more quickly and painlessly than you might imagine. Some procedures can even be done the same day.

“We’re seeing patients who encompass almost every age range and need; and whether teeth were lost due to an accident or injury, gum disease, or age-related decay, we can offer a solution for just about every situation,” explains Dr. McLachlan.

Dental implants provide an increasingly popular alternative to dentures and partials, with the look, feel, and function of natural teeth. With an on-site laboratory and staff of technicians, Desert Dental Specialty Group is uniquely qualified to handle this complex procedure.

Comprehensive Care with a Collaborative Focus

Desert Dental Specialty Group is a one-stop center for complete dental health, offering restorative dentistry, including porcelain bridges and single crowns; cosmetic dentistry, such as whitening and porcelain veneers; periodontics for the treatment of gum disease; and periodontal cosmetic surgery, to completely perfect your smile. All aspects of dentistry are performed using the latest technology in their spectacular new Palm Desert facility. The architecturally stunning venue is outfitted with every modern advancement and amenity, and its pristine appointments immediately convey the quality and caliber of care you can expect to receive.

In addition to Dr. McLachlan, Desert Dental Specialty Group is composed of a team of highly skilled practitioners, including Prosthodontist Dr. Jeffrey Tom, Periodontist Dr. Ellie Kheirkhahi and Endodontist Dr. Margaret Ashe. All of the doctors utilize a team approach and collaborate with individual patients on the most effective treatment plan.

“We are fortunate to have ‘the best of the best’ within the dental industry practicing at our facility,” says Dr. McLachlan. “Making sure that our patients receive the most personalized, advanced care possible is always our number one priority.”

Dr. Kheirkhahi is a member of the American Academy of Periodontology. Dr. Tom and Dr. McLachlan are members of the American College of Prosthodontists.
