Dr. Kourosh Maddahi - December 2019



Looking Back at an Incredible Decade

The end of 2019 marks the end of the decade. It’s been quite an eventful 10 years at the practice and in my personal life. The world is a very different place than it was in 2010. Over the past 10 years, I have watched my kids grow up, and I have watched my two older kids graduate from high school and college. One graduated from UCLA and the other from USC. My youngest son has only just started middle school. Going into the 2020s, I will watch my youngest graduate high school and attend college, as well. It will be interesting to see his journey unfold just like it did for the others. This past decade, I also wrote two best-selling books, “Anti-Aging Dentistry” and “The Hidden Epidemic.” Writing both of these books was a large undertaking and served as a fantastic way to educate patients and the general public about major issues in the dental world. Education plays a big role in what I do as a cosmetic dentist. There are so many cosmetic and anti-aging treatments available, so it’s important to understand what makes the most sense for each individual patient, and these books help lay that foundation. You can still find these books on Amazon.com. After authoring two books, my other major professional accomplishment was developing an innovative oral care brand called Oral Essentials. It was another way to help bring my vision of healthier, biocompatible dentistry and oral care to life. Even better, it’s a project I’ve been able to work on with my oldest son. Last month, I mentioned my eldest son helps run the Oral Essentials business. The benefit of this is the fact that I get to see him just about every day! I’m very proud of the work he’s done helping develop the Oral Essentials brand. I’m also very proud of my daughter. I mentioned her last month, as well. She is currently attending dental hygiene school and is on the path to becoming a dentist. She has already accomplished so much, and I am looking forward to what she accomplished in the next decade — the sky’s the limit. In the middle of it all, I also worked on the development of Infinity Veneers. These veneers, which we introduced into the practice in the last few years, were designed to solve a major problem presented by

traditional porcelain veneers: discoloration over time. We developed a porcelain and cement system that resisted discoloration, giving patients great options that would last longer than traditional veneers. They have been a great success! It has been a wonderful decade with many blessings and accomplishments. I have watched my practice grow, and I have had the opportunity to meet many wonderful new patients. I am looking forward to the next decade. There are still many more ways to innovate in the dental field, more ways to make oral care even healthier. I look forward to exploring new ideas and accomplishing even bigger goals.

As 2019 comes to an end and this decade comes to a close, I wish you the best on your own journey. Here is to a fantastic 2020 and beyond!
