In 1996, Dr. Saffarpour relocated to the United States. After giving birth to her first son, she enrolled at UCLA to prepare for the National and California State Dental Boards, both of which she soon successfully completed.

Since opening her own office in 2002, Dr. Saffarpour has continued her studies to expand and enrich her practice and knowledge of dentistry, and particularly its relationship to whole body health. Areas in which she has received advanced training or certification include

 

  • Biomimetic dentistry.
  • Dental ozone therapy (Master Class level).
  • Soft tissue & periodontal laser dentistry.
  • Treating TMD (temporomandibular/TMJ disorders) & orofacial pain.

  • Pneumopedics (non-surgical upper airway remodeling for pediatric obstructive sleep apnea).
  • Treatment of sleep disordered breathing & craniofacial pain in adults & children.
  • Motor nerve reflex testing.

Solmaz Forutan, DMD

Associate Dentist

Dr. Solmaz Forutan joined our practice as an associate in 2020, shortly after moving from Chicago to the Bay Area for, among other things, its much better (and warmer!) weather.

Solmaz Forutan DMDIt was in Chicago where Dr. Forutan earned her dental degree from the University of Illinois College of Dentistry. She was among the top 5% percent of her class at UIC, receiving the Golden Scaler Award for clinical excellence. She has published and presented her work on evidence-based dentistry, receiving several prestigious awards for her work, including Best Clinical Science Winner by the Illinois State Dental Society and the Clinical and Translational Sciences Award by UIC.

Dr. Forutan enjoys all aspects of general dentistry and is very passionate about improving people’s oral health. She treats each patient as if they were her own family member. She takes the time to talk in depth with her patients about dental issues, their causes, and treatment options. She also finds it very rewarding to provide high quality dental care to children, as it is the foundation for their future oral and overall health.

Providing needed care to underserved populations has likewise been important to Dr. Forutan, who has volunteered in many free clinics, such as the Mission of Mercy and Salvation Army dental clinics. She is currently a member of the American Dental Association and Academy of General Dentistry, among other professional organizations and regularly advances her skills through continuing education courses and seminars.

When not practicing dentistry or pursuing CE, Dr. Forutan enjoys hiking, swimming, biking, watching movies, cooking new recipes, and baking all kinds of sweets. She loves spending time with her husband, son, and daughter, doing activities from board games and puzzles at home to exploring all that the beautiful Bay Area offers.
