May 07, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Dr. Bijan Afar, a Los Angeles area dentist and periodontist with a reputation for excellence, has recently opened a new office in the North Hollywood area. Anyone looking for a North Hollywood dentist will be very pleased to learn that Dr. Afar and his team of excellent general dentists, cosmetic dentists, orthodontists, endodontists, and others are now located close to home. Here's a closer look at Dr. Afar's highly-regarded and highly-trained staff of dentists.

North Hollywood Dentist

Dr. Ghasri and Dr. Tiraspolskaya are NOHO Dental Group's main two general and cosmetic dentists in North Hollywood.

Dr. Ghasri's father is a retired dentist, so she grew up understanding the basics of dental procedures and how to interact with patients. After she graduated with honors from UCLA, earning her undergraduate degree in Neuroscience, she went on to attend UCLA's coveted School of Dentistry.

Dr. Ghasri has continued her education by taking advanced courses in cosmetic dentistry, including learning working with Lumineers, Invisalign clear aligners, and deepening her understanding of implant reconstruction. As a North Hollywood cosmetic dentist, Dr. Ghasri has several patients you might recognize, because she's given smile makeovers to many celebrities and Hollywood stars.

Dr. Tiraspolskaya also attended UCLA, completing her undergraduate degree with honors in Biochemistry, and also attended UCLA's School of Dentistry, graduating in the top 5% of her class. Dr. Tiraspolskaya has never been satisfied with merely competent academic or professional performance. By completing a residency program at Wilson-Jennings-Bloomfield's Center for Advanced Education in General Dentistry, Dr. Tiraspolskaya has seen and treated many complex dental cases. She has worked with patients with partial or complete absence of teeth, and worked hard to completely restore their smiles.

North Hollywood Orthodontist

Dr. Wu is NOHO Dental Group's orthodontist. She works hard to stay abreast of the latest technologies available to her patients, such as Invisalign clear aligners. This dental device in some cases can completely replace braces, allowing self-conscious teens and adults to get the smile they've always wanted, without the hassle and difficulty of conventional braces.


As a native of southern California, Dr. Wu strayed from home only in order to get the best possible education. Completing her undergraduate degree in Molecular Cell Biology at Berkeley, Dr. Wu returned south to attend UCLA's School of Dentistry. After earning her Doctorate of Dental Surgery at UCLA, Dr. Wu headed back to the Bay Area for three years of post-graduate training in orthodontics at UCSF. Simultaneously, Dr. Wu completed master's degrees in Oral and Craniofacial Science and in Orofacial Science.

North Hollywood Implant Dentist

With such a superb team of dentists, it wouldn't be surprising if Dr. Afar just relaxed and let his team handle all the patients. Nothing could be further from the truth: Dr. Afar himself is a highly respected dentist and periodontist, specializing in complex dental implant cases.

Like several members of his staff, Dr. Bijan Afar was an excellent student; he graduated amongst the top 5% of all dental students nationwide, earning the Dentist-Science Fellowship from the National Institute of Health. This fellowship allowed him to continue his education and research in the field of Periodontics and Implant Dentistry at the University of Washington, Seattle.

As a respected North Hollywood implant dentist, Dr. Afar has been a part-time faculty member of UCLA's School of Dentistry, and often lectures on the latest advances in dental implants. An active member of the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, and the Western Dental Society, Dr. Afar prides himself in staying up-to-date and always expanding his skills as a periodontist.

North Hollywood Pediatric Dentist

Dr. Monica Sharma is a board eligible pediatric dentist and supports oral health care for children. After receiving her dental degree from University of Maryland she completed her general practice residency at Montefiore Medical Center in New York and later acquired a certificate in Pediatric Dentistry from Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center. She believes that establishing a positive attitude toward dentistry and delivering gentle dentistry helps children and teenagers maintain healthy and beautiful smiles.

The doctors profiled above are part but not all of North Hollywood Dental Group's staff. In addition to the doctors mentioned, the practice also includes Dr. Kakoli, who specializes in root canal therapy.
