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.

Ramin Moradi, DDS

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.

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.
