Bringing a higher level of dental care and caring to Southern California communities.
In 1991, a group of dedicated dental professionals saw the need for quality and multi-specialty dental care in many communities throughout the greater Los Angeles area. Their vision was to open state-of-the-art dental care practices that would combine the highest standard of care, the latest technologies, and the services of talented general dentists and specialists to meet the needs of the communities they serve.
Today, that vision has become a reality. West Coast Dental and its affiliated practices have many convenient locations to serve you with an unparalleled level of expertise, service, convenience, and care. Inside of these practices, general dentists and specialists work side-by-side with their friendly, well-trained associates to ensure their patients get the most appropriate care and a high level of personal service. World-class care and caring is right around the corner at a West Coast Dental affiliated practice; Southern California’s friendly neighborhood dental experts.
Vickie Greenberg, DDS, MSD
Dr. Greenberg is a Board Certified Orthodontist who has been practicing orthodontics for over 25 years. She completed her DDS degree at Northwestern in Chicago, IL; her MSD degree at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA; and her surgical orthodontic program at Harlem Hospital/Columbia University during 1990 and 1991. She was awarded for outstanding performance by the Dental Materials Department in 1988.
Dr. Greenberg is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, an Elite Provider of Invisalign®, and a certified provider of the DNA Appliance System for Sleep Apnea & Snoring. She is also currently a member of several orthodontic groups, organizations, and study clubs, including AAO, PCSO, CDA, American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, Occlusion Connection, and a Fotona Light Walker User Group. Dr. Greenberg has been published in the CDA Dental Journal.
Dr. Greenberg specializes in Invisalign®, Invisalign Teen®, and maxillofacial orthopedics. Her goal is to improve the patient’s airway space for better overall breathing during the night which results in a more alert and less irritable day, therefore having a better quality of life!
Dr. Greenberg enjoys taking on more difficult cases that usually require surgery. She has become known for correcting the patient’s bite in a non-invasive and non-surgical way. When other specialists suggest surgery, Dr. Greenberg is skilled at finding a creative way to use a non-extraction, non-surgical method of treatment to improve the patient’s smile without too much pain! She enjoys creating beautiful smiles and confidence in her patients and improving their quality of life.
Minnesota born but Los Angeles raised, Dr. Greenberg now lives in the San Gabriel Valley and has been serving the Pasadena, CA area since 1991. She comes from a long maternal line of medicine women, including 3 out of 4 of her grandparents who had graduated from the University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy in 1920s. Two of her grandparents actually graduated together in 1925!
She has a daughter, Alisa, who is also pursuing a career in medicine, and a son, Aaron, who is interested in law. In her spare time, Dr. Greenberg enjoys photography, traveling, reading, and looking for new ideas to improve her patient’s quality of care.
I am committed to offering “leading-edge dentistry and old fashioned service”, and I base my practice on the belief that dentistry is more than teeth — it’s about personal relationships. This follows a credo I learned in dental school and one I try to practice every day: “The principle of conservation of tooth structure.”
In caring for my patients, I try to be as conservative as possible in determining how much tooth should be removed, while at the same time ensuring that it remains functional and aesthetic. I also stress the importance of gum and bone health, which is the backbone of functional and aesthetic dentistry.
I believe dentistry, when done right, is a science as well as an art — a marriage of form, function and aesthetics.
“Our goal, whether it be functional and/or cosmetic, is to restore self-esteem, confidence, and most importantly, quality of life, one patient at a time.”
Dr. Farahmand has been practicing dentistry since 2002, offering high-quality aesthetic, general and cosmetic dentistry to patients throughout the Los Angeles area. Born and raised in Monterey, California, he moved to L.A. in his early teens and has lived here ever since.
He holds an undergraduate degree from UCLA and a Doctorate of Medical Dentistry (D.M.D.) from the Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine. Committed to maintaining on the leading edge of dental practice, Dr. Farahmand continues to participate in advanced continuing education courses in a variety of practice areas, including implant, cosmetic, periodontal and endodontic dentistry, among others.
Dr. Farahmand provides a full range of dental services and empowers his patients to take control of their personal and professional lives by dramatically improving the one physical attribute that most people see first: their smile.
Your smile’s integrity is based on optimal oral health, excellent dental care, and the beauty that comes from taking an interest in your image. Dr. Canzoneri and his staff will become your smile care team, sharing the information and providing the comfortable, quality clinical care you deserve.
All that is good begins with a SMILE.
When you visit our office, your smile is our top priority. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with the personalized, gentle care that you deserve.
Part of our commitment to serving our patients includes providing information that helps them to make more informed decisions about their oral health needs. This website is a resource we hope you’ll find both useful and interesting.
