Anxiety-Free Visits & Beach-Themed Ambience

Trident Smiles Dental was founded with your comfort as our priority, creating a beach-themed oasis designed to ease your anxieties. Enjoy pain-free sedation, luxurious amenities, and a tranquil atmosphere tailored for a relaxing dental experience.

At Trident Smiles Dental, our commitment to a pain-free experience starts with numbing gel before injections, ensuring comfort during local anesthesia. For anxious patients, we offer calming options like nitrous oxide and oral sedation.

Plus, detailed post-operative care instructions and medications ease discomfort after procedures like wisdom tooth extractions.

The walls of our clinic are adorned with captivating beach art, creating a serene escape that mirrors the tranquility of the seaside. This calming ambience is designed to relax your mind and elevate your dental experience.

Further enhancing the beach theme, each treatment room is named after an exotic island, adding to the immersive tranquil atmosphere.

Massage, Refreshments & Hot Towels

Step into a soothing experience where comfort meets care. Unwind with a relaxing massage, enjoy a selection of free refreshments, and indulge in the luxurious touch of warm towels. Each element is carefully chosen to enhance your visit, ensuring you leave refreshed and cared for.

Netflix & Whitening

Experience entertainment while enhancing your smile. Our treatment rooms are equipped with TVs, allowing you to catch up on your favorite Netflix shows as you undergo procedures like teeth whitening. This unique feature provides a distraction that makes the time fly and your dental visit a more enjoyable one.

Synergy of an All-Star Dental Team

Our team is composed of expert general dentists, hygienists, orthodontists, prosthodontists, and surgeons who work in synergy, ensuring seamless communication and collaboration. This integrated approach not only enhances outcomes but also provides a smoother patient experience. Additionally, all of our providers are in-network with the same insurance companies.

Top 1% Diamond Plus Invisalign Status

Diamond Plus is the top status that an orthodontist can earn, as it requires that they complete 200 cases every 6 months (400 a year!). The accreditation comes from Invisalign, and it gives a clear indication of an orthodontist’s experience and expertise working with the Invisalign system.

Dental Implant Experts With 20+ Years of Experience

We are proud to have Dr. Kim and Dr. Nayyar on our team, each with over 20 years of experience and more than 1,000 implant procedures between them. Their expertise ensures precise and personalized dental implant services, resulting in durable and aesthetically pleasing outcomes for our patients.

Top General Dentists & Hygienists

Our dental professionals are selected for their ability to deliver effective yet gentle care, essential for encouraging regular preventive maintenance.

General dentists provide expert care in both preventive and emergency situations, ensuring thorough and personalized treatments that safeguard long-term oral health.

Our hygienists, who are as beloved and crucial as our doctors, are never substituted with temporaries. We ensure consistent, high-quality care by employing permanent staff only, because we know the quality of their work firsthand.

CAMBRA Methodology

Created at UCSF in the early 2000s, CAMBRA considers a patient's health and lifestyle risks (e.g., harmful bacteria, low saliva levels, poor diet) against protective factors (e.g., fluoridated water, fluoride toothpaste, antibacterial mouth rinses, adequate saliva).

Dentists assess a patient's caries risk and devise a management plan, which might include high-fluoride toothpaste, antibacterial mouthwash, and recommending lifestyle changes for monitoring.

Exceptionally High Standards of Dentistry

We maintain top-tier standards in dentistry, employing state-of-the-art technology, strict compliance, premium materials, and impeccable hygiene practices for optimal patient care.


We believe in transparent and informative care, supported by cutting-edge technologies such as predictive 3D iTero scanners, Vatech X-rays, and intraoral scanners.

These tools provide precise impressions, detailed imaging, and efficient examinations, helping patients gain clear insights into their dental health and feel confident in their treatment decisions.

HIPAA Compliance

HIPAA compliance is paramount in safeguarding patient information, ensuring their security and privacy. At our practice, we hold a steadfast commitment to upholding these standards, recognizing the heightened vulnerability of healthcare establishments to security breaches.

With a profound understanding of the importance of confidentiality, we implement stringent measures to mitigate risks and maintain the trust of our patients.

Materials, Labs & Parts

When it comes to materials, our dentists prioritize quality, relying on reputable brands like 3M, Straumann, and Invisalign. We never compromise on material excellence, ensuring treatments last longer for our patients. Additionally, we partner with top local labs to guarantee strong craftsmanship in crafting crowns and dentures, providing seamless function akin to natural teeth.

For implant procedures, we exclusively use Swiss brand Neodent implants and abutments. This ensures maximum long-term success and durability for our patients' oral health.


We maintain our operating rooms to the highest standards of cleanliness, treating them as if we were the next patient. With state-of-the-art sterilization equipment and strict infection control protocols, we prioritize patient safety and high-quality care.

Adherence to these practices is essential for providing safe and superior patient care. With zero tolerance for violations, we exceed regulatory requirements and set a benchmark beyond the standards observed by other dental establishments.

Insurance & Financing Expertise

Quality and affordability should not be mutually exclusive. That's why our team prioritizes transparency, flexibility and expertise in navigating insurance matters. We proudly accept all major PPO plans, ensuring that our patients receive top-notch care without breaking the bank.

Our staff has extensive experience dealing with insurance companies. Some of the many that we are a preferred provider with are listed here.

Sunbit & Cherry Financing

Sunbit and Cherry Financing offer patients a more lenient payment plan, which allows treatment payments in instalments and over a longer period of time. They also help patients get instant approvals for treatments despite low credit scores.

So if you have been on the fence about your dental treatments, we will help you SMILE NOW and PAY LATER.
