Lama Shoukfeh, DDS
Lubbock, TX DentistAdvanced Dental Care & Aesthetics
Dr. Lama Shoukfeh is a graduate of Texas Tech University and the University of Detroit Mercy Dental School. Dr. Shoukfeh has been practicing dentistry for 22 years. She has completed several post-graduate courses in dentistry including implant placement and bone grafting, Invisalign and straight wire orthodontics, and impacted wisdom teeth extractions. She is also certified in relaxation and sedation techniques, including nitrous oxide (laughing gas), oral sedation and IV sedation. She is both a BLS (Basic Life Support) and ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support) Certified Healthcare Provider.
In addition to general and cosmetic dentistry, she treats gum disease with laser therapy, places implants to replace missing teeth, performs root canal therapy and extracts wisdom teeth. Dr. Shoukfeh has been an Invisalign certified provider since 2004 and she is proud to offer clear braces and "invisible" teeth straightening with both Invisalign and Clear Correct.
Dr. Shoukfeh and her caring staff place an emphasis on patient comfort and providing a gentle touch to put our patients at ease. We focus on patient education and prevention to help our patients achieve their healthiest smile.
Her approach starts with listening to your concerns. Then, after a comprehensive and thorough examination, she reviews and discusses the diagnoses and treatment options. She examines the teeth, gums, and performs an oral cancer screening. In addition to digital x-rays (which emit the lowest radiation possible), we take intraoral pictures with a mini camera so patients can see their teeth and gums. It is her pleasure to address all your questions and concerns.
If you have been to other offices where you feel like you are being rushed in and out, you will find that is not the case at Advanced Dental Care. We allow one hour appointments for regular cleanings and exams to allow us to take pictures and to educate our patients thoroughly. We believe visiting the dentist can and should be a pleasant experience. Many of our patients have had difficult previous dental experiences, and Dr. Shoukfeh prides herself on creating good dental experiences for them.
Dr. Shoukfeh has a gentle hand and many patients have remarked how they did not realize that they had an injection.
In a world where dental practices are being bought out by corporations and business people, Dr. Shoukfeh and her staff at Advanced Dental Care insist on remaining a local, dentist-owned practice where our patients are the main focus.
