Registered Dental Hygienist

I grew up partly in Iran and Switzerland. Having a strong desire to pursue my career in dentistry I decided to study dental hygiene when I came to the United States and completed my training at UCSF in 1998.  Where I first met Dr McDowell in school as well. In 2012 I joined Dr.McDowell’s dental practice, now TVFD, and I continue to enjoy our team work while tending to my patients’ dental concerns and improving their dental health.

I am fluent in Persian, French, and English languages. Simple pleasures in life make me happy.  I enjoy playing piano, reading poetry,  scientific articles and non-fiction books. I particularly take pleasure in cooking, baking; with my specialty in cream puffs!  I have a ritual of making flower arrangements freshly cut from our garden.
