  • Teeth cleaning and personal prevention plans: Even if you are careful about your dental health, regular professional cleanings are vital to the future of your teeth. Every dentist office offers this service, but at Pasadena Smile Center, Dr. Molayem works closely with each patient in developing a tailor-made plan to prevent future cavities. Besides professional cleanings, we offer protective dental sealants, fluoride treatments, antibacterial treatments and a plan for healthy eating habits.
  • Teeth whitening: A brilliant smile is inviting and attractive – our in-office treatments allow you to achieve a picture-perfect smile in just a single visit.
  • Porcelain veneers: Custom veneers can be created to give you a smile you are proud to share.
  • Invisalign invisible teeth aligners: Close gaps and straighten your teeth with Invisalign. A custom set of aligners is created just for you, slowly shifting your teeth into place, without braces.
  • Dental implants: A missing tooth can be restored with a custom dental implant that looks and functions exactly like a normal, healthy, natural tooth.

Dr. Cho provides a full range of periodontist services to restore your mouth, teeth and gums to a healthy condition. His advanced skills include gum and bone grafting, scaling and root planing and laser gum treatments, to mention a few.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Due to the increased health concerns regarding COVID-19, we are now scheduling Virtual Consultations.

The virtual consultation can help answer questions, provide guidance and help ease your mind. This is an area recently approved by the American Dental Association. During this process you become a patient of our dental practice by filling out new patient forms. This process is to familiarize the doctor with your Medical and Dental history which will be reviewed before your virtual appointment. The insurance portion will be used for billing purposes.

Depending on your needs you can schedule for one of the two types of consultation


1. Limited Visual Consultation: Limited to one tooth or one area of concern. (10minutes)

2. General Visual Consultation: Answers to your questions to more than one area of concern. (20 minutes)

What we need from you prior to your Consultation time:

1. X-rays that you have from previous dentists up to five years old.

2. Pictures of the area taken by your smart phone from different angles. Take as many from different views as possible. Including pictures of your smile and bite. We have found using your flash on your phone and focusing will help.
