About Us

Growing up in San Diego, Dr. Bagheri saw that dental care was a challenge for many families in his community.

This inspired a lifetime of advocacy for oral care. This passion for reaching out to the community has led Dr. Bagheri to lend a hand to an array of organizations that offer help to those who need it most.

He has volunteered with Headstart programs in North County, and FreshStart surgical services at Rady Children’s Hospital, where he assisted children who required reconstructive surgery due to issues stemming from birth defects, abuse, and neglect.

Dr. Bagheri assisted with the Thousand Smiles Foundation in Mexico, which provides free maxillo-facial surgeries and dental work to underprivileged children. Dr. Bagheri’s office has also helped Big Bear Zoo set up a dental radiology process by donating equipment and training time.
