Meet The Dentist
Dr. Reza Saffari, DMD
Dr. Saffari says,“I have always wanted to work in the health professions. For me, dentistry was a natural choice because it is an especially hands-on treatment for patients, with such immediate and positive results. It combines creative artistry with the fundamentals of science and it gives me the opportunity to interact with so many people on a daily basis.”
Dr. Saffari feels that building a foundation of trust by treating his patients as special individuals is vital. He says, “I treat my patients like family. I’m always looking at their long-term treatment concerns and the lifelong health benefits of having great oral care. Helping people to achieve and maintain excellent dental health gives me great professional satisfaction.” After graduating from the University of Nevada at Reno, Dr. Saffari received his Dental Degree from the Boston University School of Dentistry.
To keep abreast of cutting edge technology, he’s a member of the American Dental Association. He also speaks Farsi. When away from the office, Dr. Saffari enjoys being active in the outdoors. He is an avid skier, and also likes to kayak.
