Dr. Sadati standing in his practice

At The Sadati Center for Aesthetic Dentistry, acclaimed Palm Beach County smile designer Sam S. Sadati, D.D.S., promises to provide each of his patients with “All the Best for Your Smile!” At the 2004 American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry’s Annual Scientific Session, Dr. Sadati, the Creighton University School of Dentistry honors graduate, brought home the gold for the second consecutive year, receiving top honors in the prestigious International Smile Gallery competition.

Dentists from around the world vie for the coveted Smile Gallery awards-the Gold Medal awards indicate a dentist’s AACD peers consider his dental skills among the best in worldclass dentistry. Continuing on his path of excellence, Dr. Sadati is currently in the final phase of accreditation by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD)-the most demanding credentialing program available for cosmetic dentists-this would make him the only practicing accredited cosmetic dentist in South Florida.

For his patients a treatment with Dr. Sadati means beautiful and healthy results at a state-of-the-art facility.

For patients undergoing a smile transformation, The Sadati Center experience is unlike anything traditionally considered “dental.” The Sadati team lovingly pampers each patient (guest) with a surprising menu of spa-like amenities delivered in an exotic, Mediterranean-styled dental boutique. Patients can relax amid tranquil fountains in each treatment suite as they indulge in warm paraffin hand-wax treatments, dental chair massage pads, Otis Spunkmeyer cookies baked daily, hot Persian tea, Freshly brewed Starbucks coffees, a variety of juices, soft drinks, and bottled water, their own high-speed internet station, a library of DVD’s and CD’s, warm scented towels, and aromatherapy options-just to name a few of the amenities.

Dr. Sadat’s patients can-often in just a few carefully planned visits-let go of a lifetime of struggling with a less-than-perfect smile. Crooked teeth, gaps, stains, missing teeth, unattractive outdated dentistry, and virtually any smile defect can be erased by Dr. Sadati’s gentle dental wizardry. Patients are often amazed that the whole experience is much easier than they ever imagined!

The Jewish Women’s Foundation of the Greater Palm Beaches (JWF) was founded in October 2000 by a group of Jewish women committed to improving the status of other Jewish women and girls through social change grant-making with an emphasis on Jewish values. The organization’s mission is to increase public awareness of issues affecting women and girls through grants that are strategically invested in leading-edge projects designed to change the attitudes, behaviors, and practices of individuals and systems. With funds from the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County, the JFW was established allowing all of the organization’s donations to go directly into an endowment fund completely controlled by the JWF Trustees. These trustees each have an equal voice in determining the direction of the foundation and the grant process. In addition, trustees participate in workshops on social change grant-making, issues that need attention, and how to analyze grant proposals. Past program topics have included body image and self-esteem, political empowerment, social issues in Israel, economic empowerment and abuse.

On March 4, 2005 the Jewish Women’s Foundation of the Greater Palm Beaches will be holding a community-wide luncheon event at the Kravis Center Cohen Pavilion. Celebrating women helping women, JWF will announce their first grant awards. One of the highlights of this event will include keynote speaker Sara Gould, President and CEO of the Ms. Foundation for Women- the preeminent philanthropic institution championing an equitable society for women and girls in the US.

The theme of Brown’s discussion will be “There is no excuse for abuse.” The critical need to prevent the cycle of this kind of abuse will be the focus of this very important luncheon.

Following this event, on March 16, California author and violence prevention educator Paul Kivel will conduct a day long workshop on how to avoid abusive family and dating situations. This event for counselors and teens will also be held in West Palm Beach. Proceeds from the luncheon and workshop will benefit the Alpert Jewish Family & Children’s Service’s domestic abuse programs.
