Letter to our current patients

Dear Patients and Friends,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your trust and confidence in permitting me to take care of your dental needs throughout the years.  It is with mixed emotions that I am announcing my retirement from dentistry.  Because I want to be certain that my patients continue to receive the best possible care, I have carefully evaluated a number of candidates who were interested in assuming my practice.  I have selected Dr. Shermineh Zadeh whom I believe possesses the highest qualifications and is extremely well skilled in all phases of dentistry. Dr. Zadeh shares the same philosophies regarding patient oral health as me and she will provide patients with the type of care that I would want them to have.  

Dr. Zadeh is a graduate of the University of Southern California (USC) School of Dentistry with Honors. Dr. Zadeh graduated in the top 3 percent of her class and she holds both Bachelor of Science from University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and Bachelor of Architecture (B. Arch.) from University of Tehran.

I feel confident that Dr. Zadeh will continue to provide you and your family with the best dental care possible.  Dr. Zadeh and the rest of the staff will be contacting you for your next regularly scheduled visit.

Thank you again for your loyalty and confidence.  I will miss all of you very much, but I know you will really like Dr. Zadeh.


Dr. Iraj Moin, D.D.S.
