She maintained a full time private practice in Santa Barbara, California until 2002, at which time she moved to Manhattan Beach, California in order to spend more time with her family. 

She started her practice in Hermosa Beach in 2005 and has been in the same location for the last ten years.  In her current practice,  she cares for her general patients as well as patients referred for specific prosthodontic care.   As a Prosthodontist,  Dr. Arbab specializes in the replacement of missing tooth structures with veneers, crowns, implants and dental prostheses. In fact, prosthodontists are the original “cosmetic dentists” since they wed esthetics with dental function.

Dr. Arbab is committed to providing her patients with excellent and comprehensive dental care and dentist check ups in an environment that is extraordinarily caring and highly personalized.  Her compassionate care is driven by her desire to optimize her patients’ functional and aesthetic dental outcome.  She utilizes the latest technology in conjuncture with her extensive clinical experience to address each patient’s individual needs and interests.

Dr. Arbab is a member of the following dental societies: American College of Prosthodontics, Academy of Osseointegration (dental implants), American Dental Association, California Dental Association, Western Los Angeles Dental Association and Newport Harbor Academy of Dentistry.  She is also the director of two local dental study clubs.

Dr. Arbab has been married to her husband for 18 years.  He is an Emergency Department physician at Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center in Torrance.  They and their son lead an active life of exercise, cooking, skiing and traveling.
