Hello, my name is Dr. Fatima Vafai (Vah Fah ee) and I would like to personally welcome you to our San Jose, CA dental office and website. Let me introduce myself...I was born in the USA and moved overseas with my family as a child. I graduated among the top of my class from Isfahan Dental University. After practicing dentistry for a few years post graduation, I moved back to the USA. Upon meeting all requirements, I was certified by the Dental Board of California. Prior to establishing my practice, I gained further experience in Family and Cosmetic Dentistry through having had the privilege of associating with several of the best dentists in the bay area.
I am affiliated with the American Dental Association (ADA), California Dental Association (CDA), Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), and the Santa Clara County Dental Society (SCCDS). I am also a certified Invisalign and Laser dentist.
I believe in preventive and minimally invasive dentistry. I use the latest technologies available such as Caries ID, Digital Radiography, Intraoral Cameras, Inlay/Onlays, Veneers, Laser Dentistry, Invisalign, Zoom advanced power in-office whitening and much more (see Services for details). I am dedicated to continuing education and exceed the licensing requirements by attending countless hours of dental courses, lectures, and hands on workshops.
In my personal life, I take pleasure in spending time with my family and friends, dancing, riding roller coasters, playing Wii games, and keeping fit. As a mother myself I have a wonderful rapport with children.I would also like pay tribute to my deceased father, Mr. Reza Vafai for his contribution to my education and the support he provided in my life.
“Saving teeth and creating a smile that gives my patients more confidence and happiness is my greatest professional pleasure.”
"I was scared of dentists and I guess it was obvious when Dr. Vafai found 10 cavities in my mouth. The reason that I was scared of dentists was that I'm a very tall guy, so it takes a while for shots to actually have effect on me and make my mouth numb. My previous dentists didn't care about this issue and would start work before I was numb, which obviously was so painful. Dr. Vafai, very patiently gave me several shots, and she made sure that I was numb and wouldn't feel anything then she started her work. I should also mention that when she was giving me the shots I honestly didn't feel anything. The other good part of my visit was when I could watch a movie while they were working on my teeth. With 10 fillings to fill, I was in her dental office for 4 hours, but with the movies the time passed by very quick. I left with healthy teeth and a pleasant memory, something to smile about!"
