Bristles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is available for emergency patients for new and existing patients.  We are offering teledentistry appointments to minimize exposure as well.  We have rescheduled our elective appointments to help flatten the curve and do our part on social distancing.

Dr. Shirley Parikh is taking this time to improve patient care to ensure we are able to see patients safely beginning April 22nd. We have installed medical-grade air purifiers that clean the air to 0.3 microns in 15 minutes. We also invested in two Dental Air Vacuums that sit 2-3 inches from the patients mouth to eliminate aerosols and mercury vapor produced. Our team will be wearing one-use gowns, hair covers and shoe covers for each patient in addition to the recommended face masks and face shields for healthcare providers.  We are following CDC and OSHA recommendations to keep our patients, team and families safe.

Bristles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is a state-of-the-art dental practice providing personalized comprehensive dentistry.  We are conveniently located in the heart of the city. Nestled between Downtown, River Oaks, Memorial Park and the Houston Heights.  We enjoy treating families, it allows for continuity and comprehensive care.

Dr. Shirley Parikh opened the practice in 2012 to raving reviews and a wonderful dental community.  Dr. Parikh is wonderful with children and is talented in smile design.  Being able to treat the whole family is a gift to her patients.

Preventive dentistry is the foundation of our work.  Keeping your smile for a lifetime requires prevention and maintenance.  Our hygienist provides routine cleanings, sealants, fluoride and desensitizing treatment. We also provide the latest in treating decay.  SDF (silver diamine fluoride) therapy arrests decay (cavities) while they are in enamel.  Ozone therapy is used during routine and therapeutic cleanings to allow your body to heal optimally after your professional cleaning.

Dr. Shirley Parikh employs the latests advancements to provide her patients with excellent dentistry.  Digital radiographs reduce your radiation exposure by 90% and CADCAM technology allows us to deliver a permanent restoration within hours instead of weeks.  Dr. Parikh is conservative and always does her best to preserve natural tooth structure and prevent the need for root canal treatment by early intervention, ozone therapy and careful tooth removal.  Our CEREC provides us the opportunity to fabricate partial coverage restorations instead of everything needing a crown.
