Dr. Abbas Alex Rajabi, DDS
My name is Abbas Alexander Rajabi. I was born in 1966 in Iran in a family of seven siblings of which I was the sixth child. I have three sisters and three brothers one of whom passed away a few years back. All my sisters live in Bay Area with their families. My oldest brother lives in south of France and my other brother lives with his family back in Iran.
As a child, I was very outgoing and active in sports. Although I always had a 4.0 GPA, I was a frequent visitor to the principal office due to my gimmicks and silly behaviors. I finished high school at the age of 18 and after spending two mandatory years in service, I moved to Paris, France, where I spent almost three years trying to continue my educations. Unfortunately, due to many difficulties and disadvantages I was unable to achieve that goal in France.
In 1989, I moved to Bay Area and a year later I started my college educations. In 1995, I got married to a classmate of mine and two years later she gave birth to my only child, Jasmine. Unfortunately, our marriage ended 9 years later. I graduated from UC Berkeley in 1996 with a bachelor degree in molecular and cell biology and moved to southern California a year later to attend USC Dental School. During my entire time in Dental School, I worked two full time jobs to support my family. And finally, in 2001, I graduated from USC with a DDS degree.
Although it has been a difficult and challenging journey, the experience is a rewarding one. I am now in a position to help my fellow human beings achieve the optimal oral health they deserve. My life experiences have made me more aware of each patient’s unique situation and more compassionate and responsive to their needs. My only hope is that I can pay back to the society that gave me a chance in the darkest of the hours when the road was long and the future didn’t look bright.
I have been practicing Family and Cosmetic Dentistry since 2001. I started my own private practice in 2003 and since then I have made it my life mission to provide exquisite and quality dentistry for my patients. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of California at Berkeley and my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from University of Southern California School of Dentistry, USC. Since then, I have consistently strove to provide excellent care for my patients by the way of my compassion, skills and knowledge and through my commitment to continuing education and state-of-the-art technology. I take pride in being honest, patient, compassionate, good communicator, and able to relate to my patients and put to ease any fears about any given procedure.
My goal is to provide you with the most pleasant dental experience possible. I believe that the most important aspect of dentistry is to educate patients about their oral health and how to maintain a healthy mouth. I believe in the prevention rather than treatment. I also believe that Dentistry, like any other medical fields, is about treating the patient as a whole person not just a small part of them.
