About Dr. Panahpour
"Dynamic" is a word that perhaps best describes Dr. Alireza Panahpour. Artist and scientist mastered in the art of holistic healing and state-of-the-art general and esthetic (cosmetic) dentistry. Through his practice, he became acutely aware of his patient's needs and desires for general health-improvement.
In response he created his successful Dental Boutique and Wellness Center in Los Angeles, CA - a practice, which broadens the normal narrow scope of dentistry to include how the patient's oral health effects their immune system, structural and energetic alignment and general well-being.
Dr. Alireza Panahpour's continuing education and his natural proclivity as a healer has lead him to develop and evolve an overall holistic wellness practice. He is the core founder of an evolving Center for Holistic Health, which is innovatively networking various specialists and developing new, superior programs to guide patients towards optimum health treatment plans from among the wide field of options and specialties.
Dr. Alireza Panahpour is now working to expand his vision to include a wider array of complementary services to be assembled in a single, unique and supportive building (Holistic Health Center.) As the inter-specialty programs are perfected and refined, they will then be made available to other "like-minded" health practitioners around the world.

A Personal Note from Dr. Tom
I've known Dr. Panahpour for many years and consider him to be a highly trained, experienced, skilled and caring health-focused mercury safe dentist. I am impressed with the depth of his knowledge and understanding about the critically important relationship of oral to overall health and he utilizes this knowledge when designing the treatment of his patients. He promotes patient education and has a personal interest in the health and healing of his patients.
His deep concern for his patients' health, his ongoing training in holistic and cosmetic dentistry, and his concern for the safe removal of amalgam fillings makes him ideally suited to remove and replace them.
I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a caring health focused and mercury safe dentist. Dr. Panahpour is also a Charter Member of the International Association of Mercury-Safe Dentists (IAMSD). I highly recommend that you visit the website of the South Coast Medical Center. This is an idea whose time has truly come and Dr. Panahpour was instrumental in creating it.
I also encourage you to visit his highly informative website to learn more about his philosophy of holistic, mercury free and healthy dentistry. When you visit his office, please let him know where you found out about him and say hello to him from me. Thanks!
A Personal Comment
Dr. Panahpour has been sued by Stephen Barrett, the founder of Quackwatch, a suit that Dr. Panahpour won. Barrett had filed similar defamation lawsuits against almost 40 people across the country within the past few years and had not won one single one at trial. Under cross-examination during one trial Barrett conceded that he was not a Medical Board Certified psychiatrist because he had failed the certification exam. This was a major revelation since Barrett had provided supposed expert testimony as a psychiatrist and had testified in numerous court cases. Barrett also had said that he was a legal expert even though he had no formal legal training.
Carlos F. Negrete of San Juan Capistrano, California, is known for his defense of physicians, chiropractors, dentists, clinics and natural heath providers who practice what is known as complimentary & alternative medicine and holistic healthcare. Mr. Negrete defended Dr. Koren in a defamation trial brought by Barrett and was quoted as saying that "Barrett is a shill for the medical and pharmaceutical cartels and his bully tactics and unjustified discrediting of leading innovators, scientists and health practitioners should not be tolerated.” Based on my evaluation of Quackwatch, I agree completely with Mr. Negrete and congratulate Dr. Panahpour for standing up to Barrett and winning his case.
