After graduation, Dr. Nazemi worked in Northern Alberta to gain experience and challenge himself with his new profession. Dr. Nazemi enjoys working out, family time, and learning new skills.

Dr. Nazemi is determined to improve his skill set by learning every day. Continuing education in areas such as surgery and sedation practices has allowed him to become versed in more complex procedures. He feels the best patient experience comes with knowing exactly what the patient wants, and striving to meet that goal. “Helping people has always been of importance to me. The reason I sought out becoming a doctor was to do so. But becoming a dentist allowed me the skill set to enrich people’s lives. There’s nothing better than knowing you made someone’s life that much happier”.

Our Dental Technologies

Digital xray scanner

Digital Xrays

Affinity Dental has invested in digital radiography to enhance image quality in order our dentists to more accurately diagnose and detect problems. Digital x-ray technology reduces patient exposure by up to 90% when compared to film-based x-ray procedures used in the past!

Our office also provides CT (or computed tomography) scans, which are three-dimensional images of your teeth and bone structure that can assist your dentist in understanding how your teeth, their roots, and nerves are positioned, as well as your overall bone structure and thickness. It also has the added bonus of allowing your dentist to detect and monitor oral cancers.

Additionally, we also have an iTero® scanner in office, which allows us to scan your teeth for Orthodontic treatments such as Invisalign. Along with assisting in creating treatment plans for Invisalign iTero scans can help document changes in tooth and gum health and natural movement.

It’s also easy and safe to transfer images between computers, to specialists, and so on. Last but not least, no film equals no waste for the environment, which is why digital x-rays, CT scans, and iTero scans are a green solution, too!

To learn more about our digital scanning offers or book an appointment, contact us today.

VELscope Oral Cancer Screening

The Velscope system shines a painless blue light in the mouth that allows your dentist to better see lesions such as cancer. If a lesion is found it is photographed under the blue light, measured, and followed up to make sure it is not serious.
