“After 20 years of practice, I am still as passionate as the first day I started in orthodontics. Seeing the positive impact my work has on patients’ quality of life and self-confidence every day is always inspiring. The privilege to see young patients blossom to adulthood and now trust me to treat their own children is beyond special.” — Dr. Shahryar Sefidpour
Education and Experience
Dr. Sefidpour attended San Jose State University from 1978 through 1985, where he received a Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in mechanical engineering.
After graduating with his engineering degree and getting his first paycheck from his first job, Dr. Sefidpour asked his dentist for a referral to an orthodontist. The effect of correcting his malocclusion and getting the smile he always wanted made a profound difference in his life. After experiencing firsthand the positive effect of orthodontic treatment on his self-confidence, Dr. Sefidpour made the decision that this was what he wanted to do as a profession.
He attended the University of California-San Francisco School of Dentistry, where he was awarded his Doctorate of Dental Surgery. Dr. Sefidpour completed a two-year residency at the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco, where he received a certificate and a Master of Science in orthodontics.
Having practiced for more than two decades, Dr. Sefidpour understands that continuing education is essential to keep up with advances in orthodontic treatment methods. Thanks to his continual studies, he has implemented leading-edge technologies, such as digital scanning, 3D printing, and cone beam scanning into his practice to provide consistent, high-quality treatment to his patients.
Outside the Office
Dr. Sefidpour has lived and practiced in Granite Bay, California, for more than 20 years. He and his wife of nearly three decades have two beautiful children. When he’s not in the office, Dr. Sefidpour likes to exercise and restore vintage cars, and above all, spend time with his family.
