Discover Your Best Health in LA


Discover Your Best Health in LA

By Ari Anderson and Thomas Herd | August 14, 2018 | Lifestyle

The allure of new possibility and ambiance of beauty hits you instantly upon arrival to LA.


After living seven years in the frenetic corporate environment of New York, coming to LA was like a breath of fresh air. A window, in fact, to a more sanguine and laid back lifestyle where entertainment and opportunity abounded.

Being in LA, in fact, triggered a new desire to be as healthy, fit, and aesthetically polished like never before so I could live on the same energy wavelength as the world around me.

And one of the first things I did upon arrival was glean through local health care specialists including doctors and dentists to determine who would be the best specialist—or team of specialists—to get me running at peak performance so I could maximally enjoy the city.

However, what I found on google and yelp seemed to be mostly fluff pieces (another thing that Hollywood is unfortunately famous for). It wasn’t until I read an article in LA Confidential Magazine about a dentist who had mastered an interdisciplinary smile makeover process, that I felt like I had found someone with a substantive expertise.

And how right I was. That article, on Dr. Daniel Naysan, director of the Bedford Dental Group, described in intricate detail how a dentist was able to look beyond the traditional boundaries of his field to create smiles that were perfectly harmonious with the facial curvatures, complexions, and even idiosyncratic expressions of patients.

Reading about his comprehensive approach gave me the uncanny feeling that Dr. Naysan looked at patient care through a holistic lens and might be able to provide much more guidance for me than just dental enhancement.

Upon visiting his office for a phenomenal teeth cleaning, Dr. Naysan proved me right by guiding me to nearly every other specialist (such as Fabrice Gautier in Physical Fitness. Dr. Ben Talei in plastic surgery, and Dr. Shervin Molayem in periodontistry ) that only elite clientele and pro sports stars use to attain peak form.

After hitting it off with Dr. Naysan, I not only thought I had a masterful dentist behind me, but also that I had an LA lifestyle orchestrator who would help me plug in all of the pieces to the puzzle to attain the lifestyle I desired in LA.

Now only three months into my LA journey, the peak lifestyle I aspired to not only seems attainable, but I can literally see it coming together before my eyes in all of the key areas: fitness, psychology, dental hygiene, and even yoga. It’s truly amazing what having the right expert guide can do for you in a new city, and if you’ve just moved to LA I would highly encourage to discover the holistic path to peak health through an informed expert such as Dr. Naysan.
