Ramin Moradi, DDS FICOI AEGD
Some twenty years after I decided that Dentistry would be my calling in
life, I still get asked "Why would anyone want to be a dentist?!"
Well, one thing is for sure, it's never been just about the teeth.
I think it basically comes down to enjoying the interaction with people
and the love of learning. Dentistry can be a stressful environment at
times; for both the patient as well as the dentist. Strange noises, smells,
and procedures are what most people have come to associate with Dentistry.
Whenever I see someone who has had a negative experience at the dentist,
I see this as a personal challenge. What is it going to take to make this
individual see dentistry in a different light? After all these years,
nothing beats taking an apprehensive individual and making a believer
out of him. The friendships formed over the years are truly what get me
excited about coming to the office every day. I truly believe that what
we do can make a real impact in people's lives, and I never take this
fact for granted. My love for the sciences as well as for the arts is
what makes Dentistry such a great fit for me. I value the relationships
I have formed with our wonderful family of patients, and this is what
drives me to be the very best that I can be at what I do. I continue to
stay on top of the latest and greatest that dentistry has to offer to
my patients by taking hundreds of hours of continuing education courses
every year. Everyone deserves a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile along
with it all the other positive attributes that come with excellent dental care.
I received my Doctorate in Dental Surgery (DDS) from the esteemed University
of Southern California (USC) in 1996. I continued my education by doing
a dental/hospital residency at the University of California San Francisco
(UCSF) where I received my Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD)
degree. To this day, I continue to teach at UCSF as part time faculty
alongside some of the world's leading specialists in dentistry. I
have had the pleasure of being associated with some amazing organizations
such as the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, (AACD), the West Valley
Implant Study Club, Crown Council, as well as receiving my Fellowship
in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (FICOI), as well
as my certificate to perform conscious sedation from the Dental Organization
of Conscious Sedation. Being part of these outstanding organizations,
has given me the opportunity to stay on the cutting edge of restorative,
implant, cosmetic dentistry, and orthodontics. It is also through these
organizations that I have had the opportunity of taking part in endeavors
outside my comfort zone. Such as becoming co-author to a best-selling
book about dentistry of all things!!
Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with my wonderful wife, Marjan,
along with my amazing kids, Sarah and Nima. I am a lover of blues and
jazz music, as well as all things outdoors.

Karen Lewis, Office Manager
I have had the pleasure of being part of this amazing practice for the
past 13 years. Over the years, I have been fortunate to make the acquaintance
of our many wonderful patients and to really come to know them on a personal
basis. I am in charge of many things at the office, including scheduling,
treatment planning, and insurance billing. Having started out as Dr Moradi's
chairside assistant, I also continue to assist in the back office as needed.
I trust Dr Moradi with all my dental care, as well as the dental care
of my whole family. He is a truly competent, compassionate practitioner
who makes everyone feel at ease in the dental chair. I am the mother of
three children and in my spare time, love to dance, walk, read, and spend
time with friends.
Rita Ghookas Registered Dental Hygienist
I am the Registered Dental Hygienist at Moradi Signature Smiles. Upon graduation
from Carrington College in 2011 I received the Golden Scaler award as
the best practitioner in my class. I am also certified in the Academy
of Laser Dentistry, CPR, Radiology, and Nitrous Oxide Monitoring. I enjoy
being part of a professional and caring team that never loses sight of
the ultimate goal, which is to treat people with the dignity and respect
that they all deserve. Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with
my family and friends. I swim and ski proficiently. My hobbies include
cooking, working out, and listing to music.
Moradi Signature Smiles represents the transformation that can take place
between compromised oral health and a beautiful new smile; and much more
than that, it represents a renewed quality of life – one that comes
with the confidence to enjoy.
I have been working with Dr Moradi as a dental assistant for over a year,
and I have been in the dental field for 3 years. I enjoy working with
Dr Moradi because he cares and treats his patients as family, and always
makes sure that they are comfortable. My top priority at work is to provide
the highest comfort and care to all patients and make sure they have a
great experience during their appointment. I'm currently continuing
my education at Evergreen College and my goal is to become a dental hygienist.
In my spare time I love dancing, shopping and spending time with family
