I am committed to offering “leading-edge dentistry and old fashioned service”, and I base my practice on the belief that dentistry is more than teeth — it’s about personal relationships. This follows a credo I learned in dental school and one I try to practice every day: “The principle of conservation of tooth structure.”
In caring for my patients, I try to be as conservative as possible in determining how much tooth should be removed, while at the same time ensuring that it remains functional and aesthetic. I also stress the importance of gum and bone health, which is the backbone of functional and aesthetic dentistry.
I believe dentistry, when done right, is a science as well as an art — a marriage of form, function and aesthetics.
“Our goal, whether it be functional and/or cosmetic, is to restore self-esteem, confidence, and most importantly, quality of life, one patient at a time.”
Dr. Farahmand has been practicing dentistry since 2002, offering high-quality aesthetic, general and cosmetic dentistry to patients throughout the Los Angeles area. Born and raised in Monterey, California, he moved to L.A. in his early teens and has lived here ever since.
He holds an undergraduate degree from UCLA and a Doctorate of Medical Dentistry (D.M.D.) from the Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine. Committed to maintaining on the leading edge of dental practice, Dr. Farahmand continues to participate in advanced continuing education courses in a variety of practice areas, including implant, cosmetic, periodontal and endodontic dentistry, among others.
Dr. Farahmand provides a full range of dental services and empowers his patients to take control of their personal and professional lives by dramatically improving the one physical attribute that most people see first: their smile.
