    A superb dentist! He is very gentle, with great staff and is a holistic practitioner, so doesn't use fluoride and uses bio-compatible products for fillings and caps. I went to him because he removes & replaces mercury fillings in a safe way, following the Huggins protocol!
  • Beautiful office with a soothing atmosphere - very rare for a dental office! Dr. Zakarian is lovely, very gentle when giving shots and a great dentist. He only diagnoses what absolutely has to be done and is quite conservative in his findings - you won't be ripped off here! We love the fact he is holistic and doesn't use Fluoride or mercury fact, he is the only Huggins provider south of Los Angeles. Love his staff too~ A Google User
  • Dr. Z is the best dentist I have seen. I had a really bad experience with Poway Family Dental, so I came to Natural Dental Arts. The staff here was super friendly and professional. It feels GREAT to have personal service from a small office like Dr. Zakarian's rather than a Corporate Dentist that treats you like a walking $ sign. Rebecca, the office manager requested my x-rays from my previous dentist to save me money and Dr. Z gave me an honest consultation regarding my treatment plan. At my previous dentist, they tried to upsell me on unnecessary services. Dr. Z and staff gave me choices and explained the benefits... offering advice and choices that would benefit me the most. For once I actually have a relationship with my doctor and look forward to my next visit ~ A Google User
  • Dr. Zakarian and his entire team are wonderful! I had my first appointment yesterday. I felt that Dr. Zakarian, aside from being aligned with my holistic approach to life, was very thorough and thoughtful. His staff is meticulous. My teeth have never felt as clean the day after! Everyone is so nice and willing to accommodate your needs. I have a healthy fear of dentists, but was put at ease at Dr. Zakarian's office. I know I'm in good hands. ~ Giovanna M.
  • Dr. Zakarian is a marvel. Okay I am exaggerating. He is just a wonderful dentist that has been serving the area for several years. I have gotten to know him well through his service and his recommendations for other oral services for orthodontia, oral surgery and other dental requirements outside of his purview. I would recommend him to more people as much as I can because he knows how to treat his patients with humor, a nice and quiet environment and of course an atmosphere of no pressure regarding getting work done unless its necessary. He understands if you are not able to immediately get everything you need done based on the cost of services, he is willing to explain what is most important to take care of. ~ Melanio F.
  • I like Dr Zakarian's office because they are naturalists. They don't believe in unnecessary treatments and always opt for natural remedies. I have a lot of issues and feel like I can work with him to help prevent these issues in the future. I usually have tons of questions and he makes sure they are all answered. The front desk person, Rebecca, is so sweet and sincere. Always takes time to listen and fit me in when it works for me. ~ Cristyn C.
  • This is by far the best dentist I've ever had. All the great things people say about him are so very true. In fact, because I have such a great experience there...I think I go without hesitation, where in the past Id avoid the dentist only delaying the inevitable. Dr. Z and his staff are warm, welcoming, and smart! I had to have a tooth removed and fillings replaced and he was great in both instances. Plus...he and his staff are awesome people to top it all off! ~ L.V.
  • Dr. Zakarian was wonderful! He has great bedside manners and a friendly personality. All the receptionists are extremely sweet and friendly, you feel like they actually care that you are there. Plus you get a discount when you pay by cash/check! I will most definitely be coming back here for all my dental needs. ~ Andrew H.
  • Dr. Z initially saved me close to $10,000 by treating me conservatively and naturally. I have had a Holistic Clinic in San Diego for over 20 years and initially I was apprehensive to Dr. Z's use of the word "holistic". This term has been used without substantial training by many. The reality is he is significantly trained in all aspects of Dentistry and health and brings that to his patients in a very professional and personal way. Dr Z is constantly taking advanced training. I have had nothing but good reports from all the patients I have refered to him as well as my family, and we are all a picky group. Dr. Z is a perfectionsist....I want that in a Dentist. ~ Brett S.
  • Dr. Zakarian is an absolutely amazing dentist! He did an incredible job in repairing the tooth that others had recommended for extraction and the bridge he made looks (and feels!) so natural that even I can't tell the difference between the bridge and my 'real' teeth. After a long time, I finally found a dentist who is caring, professional, and whom I completely trust. Needless to say, I highly recommend him! ~ Anon
  • Dr. Zakarian is outstanding! He combines the latest dental techniques with new concepts in "alternative healing". He's helped my husband and myself with several teeth issues (including receding gums and teeth grinding) that three other doctors could not figure out. We recommend "Dr. Z" to everyone we know. ~ Anon
  • Excellent dentist. Has a sense of humor and helpful if you are not ready to commit to major adjustments. Helpful and recommends other specialists. You will be assured a good dentist when you sign up with Dr. Zakarian. ~ Anon

Teeth Whitening

Dr. Zakarian is by far the best and the most trustworthy dentist I have ever been to! He and his staff are professional and caring, his office pleasant and relaxing -- every visit so far has been a great experience. It took me a long time to find a dentist who treats a patient as a reasonable human being, who cares enough to explain all available options, and who has the knowledge to do high-quality dental work. I finally found Dr. Zakarian, who really has all the characteristics a good dentist should have. Highly recommended!

Dark stains, or even the dulling of your smile can leave you feeling embarrassed or just plain dissatisfied. We are a society that appreciates attractiveness in the smile, with research showing that the majority of adults find this feature vital to personal and professional success. If you are not satisfied with the brightness of your smile, there is a proven way to handle stains, and Dr. Andrew Zakarian can provide the ideal treatment for you.
Our teeth naturally tend to discolor over time, faced with a variety of elements and substances such as:
  • Tea and / or coffee
  • Red wine
  • Richly-colored berries or juices
  • Medications
  • Smoking
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Poor oral hygiene
Taking care of your teeth and receiving regular cleanings from your friendly hygienist may enhance the brightness of your smile somewhat. When stains are affecting how you feel about this important facial feature, professional teeth whitening from your San Diego dentist can get you back on track.
Teeth whitening is a simple treatment that needs no bells and whistles. What is necessary for effective whitening is simply professional grade whitening solution, custom-fitted whitening trays, and a few weeks of your time. At Natural Dental Arts, we help patients achieve their smile goals using convenient home-whitening trays, designed to fit against the teeth perfectly.
Getting rid of stains is as simple as visiting your San Diego holistic dentist. During your first visit for teeth whitening, an experienced member of our dental team will take impressions of both upper and lower arches. The molds of your teeth will be sent to a dental laboratory where your teeth whitening trays will be made. In a subsequent visit, your trays will be evaluated for fit, and you will purchase your supply of professional-grade teeth whitening gel.
Teeth whitening trays may be worn for a few minutes a day, or as long as all night, while you sleep. Within a few days of regular use, you will notice your best smile starting to emerge as years of stains are lifted from within the deeper areas of enamel. Typically, two weeks of treatment is all it takes to transform a dull smile into one that is brilliant and youthful.
Many people crave a brighter smile. This is evident in the mass production of whitening products found in most stores. While these products are regularly purchased, this trend speaks nothing of the effectiveness of over the counter teeth whitening systems. As many people have discovered, the most effective, most comfortable way to remove stains from teeth is through professional treatment.
