About Dr. Do
LanVi Do, DDS grew up in Southern California and graduated from New York University College of Dentistry in 1999. She also has an Advanced Education Degree in general dentistry with an emphasis on cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry from the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA) where she taught as a clinical instructor.
Our caring office staff is dedicated to providing a comfortable, friendly environment. Our well trained dental assistants have over 15 years experience. Our licensed dental hygienist, Julia Gaboian, RDH, is a graduate and former instructor of the University of Southern California (USC) and has practiced in our office for 10 years.
The team at Dr. Do’s office places a high priority on stewardship of the resources with which we have been given. To that end, we strive to operate at dental office that reduces waste, provides our patients with the safest materials, and recycles materials we do use. Here are some of our efforts at helping our earth:
We are a mercury-free office which means we do not place amalgam fillings. Often referred to as “silver fillings”, amalgam dental restorations consist of mercury, silver, tin, copper, and zinc. Mercury is a toxic heavy metal, and even small amounts can damage cells. Dr. Do will safely remove these fillings when needed, and we use a highly specialized pump/evacuation filtration system which ensures the safe disposal of this hazardous material so it will not enter our water supply. Call Dr. Do to discuss alternatives to silver fillings, such as white composites or porcelain restorations.
Our digital x-ray system eliminates the need for film processing which saves the earth from harmful processing chemicals, lead & film shields, and and also exposes patients to 75-90% less radiation than a standard x-ray system. Over time, this can save upwards of 200 liters of toxic developing fluid from standard x-rays re-entering the water stream!
An all-computerized office means no patient paper charts. We strongly encourage paperless billing & correspondence with our patients, relying on email, text, internet, and phone communication. We estimate that we can save up to 50,000 sheets of paper a year due to our computerization!
Our two instrument sterilizers utilize steam sterilization which eliminates harmful chemicals from needing to be disposed.
