OUR DOCTORS

Dr. Yazdi has been providing safe and effective pediatric dental care for 26 years. Dr. Yazdi is a graduate of the world renowned dental doctorate program at University of California Los Angeles (UCLA 1994) and furthermore the post-doctoral pediatric residency program at UCLA (1996).    

 

Striving to maintain a high standard of care for my patients my intent is that all professional care delivered at my office will be of the best possible quality my staff and I can provide for each patient.

 

Efforts are made to obtain cooperation from children by the use of warmth, friendliness, persuasion, humor, gentleness, kindness, and understanding. 

 

Personally, I enjoy building, flying, and repairing radio control airplanes. I also enjoy swimming, and ball room dancing with my wife Cassandra.

Dr. Michael Wang

Dr. Michael Wang completed his dental training at the University of California, San Francisco where he developed a keen interest in pediatric care.  He moved to New York to pursue his specialty education in pediatric dentistry at Montefiore Medical Center, the University Hospital for the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, where he received training for a wide range of pediatric treatment needs.  Upon completing residency in the Big Apple, Dr. Wang returned to the Bay Area, where he was born and raised, to practice pediatric dentistry.  Dr. Wang is board-certified as a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.

 

Caring for the growing and developing patient comes with a unique set of challenges, but is also what Dr. Wang finds to be the most rewarding about his profession.  He feels strongly about utilizing conservative approaches to treatment, and placing an emphasis on preventative measures in order to ensure the health of his patients.  In addition to his native Mandarin Chinese, Dr. Wang is proficient in conversational Spanish.  You might find him immersed in a good read, listening to a new podcast, learning about different cultures, or visiting a museum or art exhibit in his spare time.
