Dr. Safaei

His loyalty kept him at the prestigious University of Southern California to finish his Doctorate of Dental Surgery where he graduated at the top of his class. During his tenure he excelled at Oral Surgery and Esthetics where upon graduation he was hand selected by the faculty to receive the top award sponsored by the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. After receiving his degree, Dr. Safaei practiced in Beverly Hills, Pasadena, Los Angeles, Bakersfield, and surrounding areas eventually finding his niche in Bakersfield and laid roots at his own office at SDDS Dental.

Dr. Safaei continues to better himself understanding that being the best is continuum of learning. He attends dozens of hours of Continuing Education to keep him ahead of his peers and allow him to personalize his treatment plans for his patients. He expanded his grasp on general dentistry to include implants, veeners/lumineers, invisalign (invisble braces), sedation (for the fearful patient), esthetic crowns and fillings, and much more.
