Elevate Dental

Elevate Dental in Encino, CA is the creation of Dr. Navid Safaei. Dr. Safaei started his career by associating at several offices. At those offices he realized one very important thing: in order to provide quality dental care, he had to create an office that focused on the quality of care he delivered. An environment that places the standard of care at utmost priority and focuses on the patient’s needs and desires.

Elevate Dental is the result of his endeavors. An office that is strictly focused on quality of care. A patient focused relationship that takes into account the requests of patients and delivers. Elevate Dental is the exact opposite of large offices; we are a boutique, patient focused practice delivering personalized dental care with one-on-one relationship with Dr. Safaei.

We offer a high tech, fully digital, paperless office that allows you to interact with Dr. Safaei. You are welcomed to discuss your treatment needs with Dr. Safaei, and he will  guide your treatment in the direction that best fits you.

At Elevate Dental we are in network with most PPO insurances and offer discount plans for those without insurance. At Elevate Dental we serve Encino, Sherman Oaks, Woodland Hills, Calabasas, Studio City, Van Nuys, Tarzana, Lake Balboa, Valley Glen, Reseda, and surrounding areas.

Dr. Safaei

Dr. Safaei grew up in Southern California and obtained his undergraduate degree in an impressive 3 years from USC. A feat few have achieved. His loyalty kept him at the prestigious University of Southern California to finish his Doctorate of Dental Surgery where he graduated at the top of his class. During his tenure he excelled at Oral Surgery and Cosmetics where upon graduation he was hand selected by the faculty to receive the top award sponsored by the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. After receiving his degree, Dr. Safaei practiced in Beverly Hills, Pasadena, Los Angeles, Bakersfield, and surrounding areas eventually finding his niche in Encino and laid roots at his own office at Elevate Dental.

Dr. Safaei continues to better himself understanding that being the best is continuum of learning. His continued pursuit of learning allows him to keep him ahead of his peers and thus give him an edge to personalize his treatment plans for his patients beyond what other dentists are able to. He expanded his grasp on general dentistry to include implants, veeners/lumineers, invisalign (invisble braces), sedation (for the fearful patient), cosmetic crowns and fillings, lasers and much more.

Many regard Dr. Safaei as Encino’s best dentist! His depth of knowledge along with his experience has a profound effect on his patients. He provides personalized care from the moment you meet him and he performs all aspects of dentistry including cleanings, fillings, crowns, bridges, implants, invisalign braces, root canals, veneers, whitening, and more, painlessly and comfortably.

In his free time Dr. Safaei enjoys spending time with his friends and family and his dog Jericho. He enjoys hiking and regularly hikes at Runyon Canyon and likes finding new adventures and hiking spots. He enjoys photography and his stills can be viewed in his office at Elevate Dental.
