With a motto of “Creating Beautiful Smiles,” it’s no wonder people in North SLO County have decided that making a visit to Lansford Dental Group will be one of their New Year’s resolutions. Since 2009, Dr. Jeremy Lansford and Dr. Jennifer Karanian have been bringing empathy, caring, quality, and comfort to patients at their Paso Robles office.

As this husband and wife team celebrates 10 years of serving the local community — they purchased the practice from Dr. John Davis when he retired after 38 years — they continue to work tirelessly to bring smiles to their patients. Married for 14 years, they previously worked together for five years as dentists serving in the United States Army.

“I think we are unique in a variety of ways,” said Dr. Lansford, “and it is valuable having both a male and female dentist in our office. Many patients feel more comfortable with one or the other and that is a nice flexibility to have. Most dentists have specific areas of expertise and my wife and I are no different. We have our strengths and can consult with each other in our respective areas of strength to better facilitate our patients’ care.”

In addition to offering general dentistry, Dr. Lansford and Dr. Karanian both have completed a tremendous amount of continuing education in the areas of cosmetics, implants, and comprehensive restorative dentistry.

“We do a large amount of ‘makeover’ type cases,” Dr. Lansford said. “This is one of the most rewarding aspects of our profession. When you can completely make over a patient’s smile and countenance, it is not uncommon for them to become very emotional. It can really positively affect their self-esteem and confidence.”

Dr. Lansford pointed to a high level of technology as being central to their practice philosophy, including the ability to do crowns in one visit with CAD/CAM milling technology. The office features digital radiography that decreases radiation exposure by 200 percent, and intraoral cameras that allow patients to see just what the dentists see when doing an exam.

“Technology in dentistry, as in many professions, is moving at light speed and we are dedicated to being ahead of the curve in this area,” Dr. Lansford said.

Looking toward all that is in store for 2019, the doctors would like to wish their patients and friends in Paso Robles peace, happiness, and joy. Reflecting on the recent loss of Dr. Karanian’s mother to cancer, they understand that the holidays and the new year may elicit a variety of emotions for people as it has for them recently.

“We hope everyone can enjoy the precious moments in their life and realize that time with family and friends is not guaranteed,” Dr. Lansford said.“Take the time to tell the special people in your life what they mean to you.”
