Dr. Munira Lokhandwala
Dr. Munira Lokhandwala, DDS, FAGD, FICOI started practicing as a dentist in Fremont, CA in 1996. With over 30,000 patient visits, she has gained extensive experi.ence in diagnosing and treating a wide range of dental issues.
Dr Munira performs a wide range of routine and specialized dental procedures and services. She routinely does root canals, crown and bridge, extraction’s, dental implants, mini-implants, Invisalign (Clear Braces) and Teeth Whitening and other cosmetic smile enhancements like (Veneers).
Her current patients repeatedly comment on her feather-light touch in performing dental procedures. StarBrite Dental has grown dramatically and has become one of the premier practices in the Bay Area due to glowing referrals and testimonials for Dr. Lokhandwala from her existing patients; who come from as far as Half Moon Bay, Stockton and San Francisco.
The twentieth century brought 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, as well as natural-looking materials like white fillings and porcelain veneers (Lumineers) that strengthen and beautify your teeth. 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 takes more than 100 hours of continuing education courses each year to keep upto date with the latest advances in Dentistry and to bring them to her patients.
Also, we strongly believe in fully educating our patients to reduce any anxiety related to the dental visit. Our modern office uses a sophisticated patient education software which allows our patients to fully understand the procedures that are recommended in layman’s terms.
Also, for the benefit of our patient’s, we use digital radiography, the latest development in X-ray technology, using which we can instantaneously capture the x-ray on the operatory LCD monitors. Most importantly, digital radiography reduces x-ray exposure by up to 90% over conventional x-ray’s. Also, by projecting the x-ray’s on the patient computer screen, we can interactively discuss the required treatment and options. You will know exactly what is being done so that you can ask questions and be informed, rather than be apprehensive, not knowing why the procedure is being recommended.
Dr Lokhandwala is great in treating children. StarBrite Dental offers both Nitrous Oxide and Oral Conscious Sedation options for our more nervous patients
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.
Our office is easily accessible from Hayward, Union City, Newark, Milpitas and San Jose.
