Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?
Dr. Mehdipour first thought about dentistry as a potential career when he was a teenager. As he studied the field in more depth, he realized that he liked the idea of orthodontics in particular because of the mix of dentistry and tissue engineering. All these years later, he still feels confident that he made the right decision for his lifelong work!
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
After practicing dentistry back home in Iran for around a decade, Dr. Mehdipour came to the United States and completed his dental doctorate at the University of Colorado School of Dentistry. He then went on to achieve his Orthodontic Certificate at Howard University in Washington, DC. He worked as an orthodontist on the East Coast for another decade before deciding to move to California so that his kids could grow up closer to his extended family.
Today, Dr. Mehdipour is a Platinum Provider of Invisalign and a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, which is an accomplishment that only one in five orthodontists ever reach. His research has been published in leading scientific journals as well, and he is a current member of the American Dental Association and California Dental Association.

Dr. Mehdipour is happily married to his wife Dr. Behnaz, who works as an ophthalmologist. They have a son named Ryon and a daughter named Yara. In his free time, he enjoys being a hands-on dad, traveling, appreciating the outdoors, and cooking!
