General Dentistry in Torrance, CA

Dental Associates of Torrance is your one-stop shop for general dentistry. We treat patients of all ages in the Long Beach area, and we invite you to our modern, state-of-the-art facility. Our team consists of specialists in various fields from endodontics to periodontics, and together, we bring years of experience to the table. Even our office managers and dental assistants have been well-trained.

After looking over your medical history, one of our dentists will take your needs into account and schedule your treatments for a suitable time. We offer all specialties under one roof, so you can come to us for:

  • Orthodontics
  • Family dentistry
  • Emergency dental services
  • Oral surgery
  • Cosmetic dentistry

We can handle the relatively simple tasks like taking digital X-rays, screening you for oral cancer, and cleaning plaque from your teeth. We'll perform scaling and root planing if your plaque has hardened and become tartar. Root canals are also no problem. Our cosmetic work covers products and services like:

  • In-office teeth whitening
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Lumineers®

As for braces, we have traditional metal options in addition to clear aligners. You might think that metal braces are too conspicuous, but we actually carry tooth-colored options that will make them more discreet.

Our Restorative Dentistry

We're also proud of restoring stained, cracked, and chipped teeth. You can request dental veneers, which will not only cover intrinsic stains but also alter the size and shape of your teeth. When a tooth is beyond repair, we can extract it and present you with a dental bridge or an implant. For multiple missing teeth in a row, consider our implants or partial dentures.

With our chairside oral scanner, we can create a digital image of your teeth, which will help in the creation of precisely fitting restorations. To avert the need for restorative work, our team can use special software to spot tooth decay in its early stages or lay dental sealants over your back teeth.

Accepting All Insurance

Whether you need general dentistry or a specialty service, we're here for you at Dental Associates of Torrance. We accept HMO, PPO, indemnity, and government-sponsored dental insurance plans, and we set up financing plans when necessary. Call today or visit our convenient location that serves Torrance; it's visible from the street. If you have an emergency like a tooth that has been knocked out, we'll get you in as soon as possible. For your convenience, we offer weekend appointments.

Dr. Pooyan Nasibi

�€œAs a medical professional, I will provide the highest standard of care to all of my patients regardless of background, culture or personal characteristics. Proving care with compassion and well being of others is a doctor's high concern and I hope to continue to grow as a doctor and a member of my community�€. Dr. Pooyan Nasibi earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the USC�€™s Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry in 2013. Dr. Nasibi spent the next two years in an advanced education program in Pediatric Dentistry at Loma Linda University. He volunteered monthly at the USC mobile dental clinic in Bakersfield, Escondido, and Pasadena.

Dr. Becker completed her Pediatric training at UCLA after practicing as an Endodontist in Peru for 10 years. Originally from Peru, Dr. Becker enjoys providing free dental care to the children of Peru at least once a year.

Dr. Magnolia Becker is also a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, California Society of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association, California Dental Association, and the Western Los Angeles Dental Society. A parent herself, Dr. Becker enjoys spending time with her son and husband at the beach. She also dabbles in photographer as a hobby.



One of our most capable and accomplished oral surgeons, Dr. Choi can secure dental implants into place or remove wisdom teeth with equal delicacy and dexterity. He majored in biochemistry at the University of California, Los Angeles, before attaining his doctor of dental surgery at the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of the University of Southern California in 2005. Deciding to specialize in oral and maxillofacial surgery, Dr. Choi continued his education at the prestigious Case School of Dental Medicine at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. Here he learned the skills that would enable him to perform a host of complex procedures ranging from corrective jaw surgery to bone grafting. After a long day at the office, Dr. Choi likes to relax by reading a good book or playing with his dog. It's always been his dream to someday travel around the world.



A passion for dental care runs in Dr. Partovi's family: Seven of her cousins are dentists. Given her background, it's not surprising that she's such a natural when it comes to making patients smile. Dr. Partovi is especially good with children; in her spare time, she donates her talents to Kids Dental Treatment, an organization that provides professional care for children in need. A native of Tehran, Iran who cites Benjamin Franklin as her role model, Dr. Partovi studied biology at the University of California, Los Angeles, before receiving her doctor of dental surgery from the UCLA School of Dentistry. She spent seven years practicing general dentistry before embarking on a 36-month periodontics graduate program at Saint Louis University's Center for Advanced Dental Education. Dr. Partovi currently belongs to the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics. She likes to relax by taking yoga classes and being with her two young children.
