Heavenly Smiles Dentist Supports Patients with Dental Phobia with Needle-less Anesthesia

At Heavenly Smiles Dentist in Poway, Dr. Bita Tahvildari asserted, “Our vision and goal has always been to help support patients with dental phobia.” Her practice does everything it can to ensure that every patient’s visit is a pleasant one. That includes integrating a new technology called NumBee, which is a needle-less anesthesia. A small plastic tip simply goes around the tooth, which ultimately prevents your tongue and lip from being numb for hours.


Describing the peaceful atmosphere at Heavenly Smiles, Dr. Bita said, “We play soft and relaxing music, and our patients can even listen to their favorite music with headphones. We especially cater to patients with anxiety, and we do our best to make sure that our patients feel at home and want to come back to us.”

Heavenly Smiles strongly encourages preventive care and tooth conservation. Dr. Bita shared, “Our intention is to prevent diseases in the mouth and preserve teeth. Our aim has been to raise all patients’ awareness regarding the importance of oral health and its impact on their overall health. Because of this, the majority of our elderly patients have most of their teeth!”

“After not having been able to smile for over five years, I now have the best smile ever thanks to Dr. Bita and her absolutely wonderful team! Coming from someone who has an absolute fear of going to the dentist, Dr. Bita made this the most relaxing and comfortable dental experience one like myself could have. Not to mention the absolutely great-looking office, it’s easy to access right off the 15 freeway. Without a doubt, this is definitely my new dental office.” – Len

Heavenly Smiles also offers an array of cosmetic treatments such as veneers, Invisalign®, Fast Braces orthodontics, and teeth whitening.

Dr. Bita is particularly dedicated to helping the younger generation’s modern dental problems. “Stress and neurosis have become major, common problems among millennials. The single most important reason for anxiety and stress is the new technology like cell phones, iPads, and computers,” explained Dr. Bita. “Most of our young patients have severe wear and cracks on their teeth. Most of them require a night guard, and some need crowns due to teeth fractures.”

To provide peace of mind, Dr. Bita even allows her patients to contact her at any time on her personal cell phone. When she is away from the office, Dr. Bita enjoys yoga, reading, music, meditation, and spending time with her family. Offering up some tooth-related wisdom, she exclaimed, “Smiling is a universal language, so keep smiling!”
