After fleeing Iran in 1987 during the revolution, Dr. Mahnaz Rashti came to the United States with a deep desire to give back to the American soldiers who so graciously accepted her with open arms. In 1994, she received her DDS degree from the College of Dentistry at New York University, and from there made the deliberate decision to complete her specialty in periodontics, implants and full mouth reconstruction at the West Los Angeles Veteran Administration Hospital.

   She spent more than a decade training and teaching at the Greater Los Angeles Veteran Administration Hospital, which included a three-year postgraduate program at the Veteran Administration-UCLA Medical Center in the field of Periodontics and Dental Implants. During this time, she also garnered valuable experience in treating highly phobic and/or traumatized patients.

Today, Dr. Rashti is regarded as one of the top periodontal and cosmetic dentists in Beverly Hills, California. Touting more than 20-years experience in performing dental implants, periodontal medicine, and periodontal plastic and reconstructive surgery, the award-winning dentist is practiced in the most advanced and effective dental techniques available today. As part of her continued promise to serve the veterans who, in turn, served her, Dr. Rashti founded the

Smiling Patriot program to provide life-changing dental care to veterans in need.
