Dr. Azadeh Amy Khajavi is a dentist focusing on dental implants in San Diego, Oregon. A fitness enthusiast, Dr. Azadeh Khajavi enjoys dancing the calories away in Zumba classes.

Zumba originated in Colombia more than a decade ago. The fitness dance class combines Latin dances such as merengue, cumbia, salsa, and samba, all of which can be traced back to the 17th and 18th centuries.

Zumba was created out of necessity. Alberto Perez, a fitness trainer in Cali, Colombia, arrived at his regular aerobics class one day having forgotten his usual music. Thinking on his feet, he substituted some Latin music, which included various classics he found enjoyable. The improvised class was a success, and with time it grew to be one of the most popular classes at the fitness facility.

In 1999, Perez brought the fitness class to Miami, Florida. In 2001, he teamed up with entrepreneurs Alberto Aghion and Alberto Perlman to create a company based on the unique combination of the music and his fitness philosophy. They trademarked the name Zumba and created a brand they sought to spread throughout the whole world.

In 2002, the three signed a deal with an infomercial company that led to the sale of thousands of videos across the United States. The demand for classes was overwhelming, establishing the need to train even more Zumba instructors. This led to the creation of an instructor training program, leading to a huge increase in the number of trained instructors in the United States. After this success in the US infomercial campaigns in Europe and South America led to the selling of millions of videos. Zumba is now practiced on six continents and is a fitness program recognized by numerous fitness organizations.

“Always do the right thing.”

During the day, when I get the chance to be by myself, I say it out loud “Dear God,  universe, energy and power, Please listen to me. Please help me be a good person, be a good mother, be a good dentist, be a fair person, I remain  humble to you. I know you have the power to take all the blessings away from me any time you want. So I do not take them for granted and am thankful for what you have given me. Amen

I recommend  these daily talks  with the higher power .  It is very important!

Bone Augmentation Using Autologous Material

As a privately practicing holistic dentist, Dr. Azadeh “Amy” Khajavi focuses primarily on implant procedures. Dr. Azadeh Khajavi uses patients’ own growth factor proteins to perform bone grafting, which can help a patient’s jaw to support an implant more effectively.

To hold a post and the artificial tooth that it stabilizes, a patient’s jaw needs to have sufficient structural integrity. Many patients come to the implant procedure with bone that is insufficiently high or wide, and while such patients may still be eligible for implants, they require additional bone volume before the dentist can introduce a post. The process by which bone volume is increased is known as bone augmentation.

In many cases, the dentist is able to retrieve a bone graft from the patient’s own body. This bone typically comes from the chin or the back of the jaw, though some patients may need additional bone from the hip or shin. Once introduced to the area where the dentist will ultimately place the implant, the autologous bone graft fuses to the jaw over the course of a few months.
