Growing up in Iran, Dr. Mojdeh Hariri-Vijeh would spend hours inspecting her teeth in front of a mirror and often played dentist with her brothers and sisters. When she immigrated to the U.S., her love for incisors and bicuspids followed, prompting her to enroll in the world's first dental school, the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery at the University of Maryland. This schooling not only bolstered her dental prowess, but also gave her the opportunity travel yet again—this time to a Navajo reservation in Arizona—where she cared for the oral health of both adults and children.
Now firmly ensconced in her Oakland practice, Dr. Vijeh leads an experienced team of hygienists and specialists in maintaining the natural beauty of teeth. The team uses state-of-the-art equipment, such as intra-oral cameras and advanced grin stimulators, to suss out and treat problems. When performing general, cosmetic, or restorative procedures, the team limits discomfort with nitrous oxide and provides headphones that fill ears with music or the entertaining banter from DVDs.
