About Dr. Sahar Mirfarsi

Welcome to My Page

I grew up in Los Angeles and graduated with honors from California State University, Northridge. She then attended the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), where I received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree.

I became more interested in oral medicine and dental management of medically complex patients while completing her General Practice Residency (GPR) at the VA San Francisco. While Practicing dentistry in Los Angeles, I also served as an adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor at Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC and as a Staff Dentist at Keck School of Medicine of USC, Department of Maternal, Child, Adolescent Center for Infectious Disease and Virology. I have also served as an adjunct faculty member and lecturer at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Department of Oral Diagnosis, Medicine and Orofacial Pain.

I then completed my Oral Medicine Residency at the University of Pennsylvania, School of Dental Medicine (UPENN). I became a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral Medicine. I focus my clinical practice on diagnosing and managing oral mucosal diseases/lesions, temporomandibular disorders, orofacial pain, salivary gland dysfunction, and oral complications related to chemoradiotherapy. 

I lecture nationally and internationally on topics related to oral medicine. I have published numerous papers and am one of the contributing authors of the prestigious American Academy of Oral Medicine manuscript: Clinician's Guide to Treatment of Common Oral Conditions, 8th edition. As an Associate Professor at the Western University of Health Sciences, College of Dental Medicine, I teach, practice, and direct various courses for the Western University of Health Sciences, College of Dental Medicine.

I'm a Fellow of the International College of Dentists (FICD), which honors the World's Leading Dentists and recognized individual's "outstanding professional achievement, meritorious service, and dedication to the continuous progress of dentistry for the benefit of humankind." In addition to my professional life, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling, hiking, cooking, and practicing yoga.

I continue to dedicate my life journey to my family and patients. Thank you in advance for your trust in my care!
