Dr. Hedieh Pournik, a compassionate and talented cosmetic dentist, has an extraordinary eye for esthetics. She takes pride in creating long lasting beautiful smiles by using innovative techniques and materials. She is passionate about making this care at a cost that is reasonable. She has invested in the best tools to make the process easy and efficient for the patients.
As a first-generation immigrant, Dr. Pournik appreciated the privilege of higher education in the U.S. She quickly excelled in high school and was a member of California Honor Society. In 2002, she obtained her Dental Degree from University of Texas in Houston. She spent the next five years attending courses all over the world to further her skills and knowledge. In the past 15 years, her focus has been in cosmetic and implant dentistry. She attended a two-year mini residency in orthodontics as well. She has been awarded fellowship in the International Congress of Oral Implantology. Her compassion for patients with dental anxiety led her to obtain her IV sedation certification to provide a safe and stress-free environment for those that need the extra care during their treatment.
Dr. Pournik strongly believes that to be an outstanding cosmetic dentist, one must have a very broad understanding of all disciplines in dentistry. Experience and knowledge go hand in hand. She and her team work hard to educate and inform patients so that they can make the best decisions about their own dental health.
When she is not working at the office, she and her husband spend time with numerous animal rescue organizations as well as Girls on the Run, and other non-profits. They both enjoy being active and spend what free time they have outside.
