Dr. Lokhandwala performs a wide range of routine and specialized dental procedures and services. She routinely performs root canals, crowns and bridges, extractions, dental implants, mini-implants, Invisalign (clear braces), and cosmetic smile enhancements (veneers).

Her current patients repeatedly comment on her feather-light touch in performing dental procedures. StarBrite Dental has become one of the premier dental practices in the Bay Area due to the glowing referrals and testimonials given by Dr. Lokhandwala’s patients, who comes from as far away as Half Moon Bay, Stockton and San Francisco.

The 20th century has brought about many improvements in dental instrumentation, in our understanding of the nature of dental disease, and in the materials that are available. These advances provide tools that are quieter, faster and more comfortable. Natural-looking materials like white fillings and porcelain veneers (Lumineers) that strengthen and beautify teeth have also become available. Dental implants, once a distant dream, are among the 20th century’s advancements that have made a natural-looking smile a consistent reality for people with missing teeth. Dr. Lokhandwala undertakes more than 100 hours of continuing education courses each year to stay updated with the latest advances in dentistry and bring them to her patients.

The StarBrite Dental Office

We strongly believe in fully educating our patients to reduce any anxiety related to the dental visit. Our modern office uses sophisticated patient education software which allows our patients to fully understand the procedures that are recommended in layman’s terms.

For the benefit of our patients, we use digital radiography, the latest development in X-ray technology, with which we can instantaneously capture the x-ray on LCD monitors. Most importantly, digital radiography reduces x-ray exposure by up to 90 percent over conventional x-rays. By projecting the x-rays on the patient computer screen, we can interactively discuss the required treatment and options. The patient will know exactly what is being done so that he or she can ask questions and be informed, rather than be apprehensive.

The next time you sit in the dental chair to be treated with one of the wonders of the modern scientific world, you might reflect on how many of these advances came to be. It takes enormous investments of money and entire teams of material scientists, computer scientists, toxicologists, synthesis chemists, and important industry collaborators to bring these advances to us, and we have the privilege of bringing them straight to you.

StarBrite Dental also offers both Nitrous Oxide and Oral Conscious Sedation options for our more nervous patients.

Our office is easily accessible from Hayward, Union City, Newark, Milpitas, and San Jose.
