Improving Lives, One Smile at a Time
Being a dentist is more than fixing teeth: for Dr. Bahareh Behdad, dentistry is about caring for the whole person and connecting with them. She takes time to understand each person’s concerns and goals, always respectful of their individual circumstances. Rather than dictating a certain treatment path, Dr. Behdad encourages each patient to be actively involved in deciding which care options fit their personal and clinical needs.
Nothing makes Dr. Behdad happier than seeing a patient eager to take control of their oral health. She and her team engage with patients, teaching them about the connection between dental and overall health. Walking each person through the best way to keep their mouth clean, reviewing nutritional concerns, and strategizing on developing healthy habits, Dr. Behdad helps patients achieve a lifetime of amazing smiles!
