Dr. Farzaneh Rostami joined the Capital Oral & Facial Surgery Center family in October 2017. With her academic achievements, quality clinical skills and in-depth experience, Dr. Rostami makes a valuable addition to our team.
'Im thrilled to be working at a highly-regarded surgery center like Capital Oral & Facial, says Dr. Rostami.'I look forward to caring for the needs of the patients and supporting D.C.-area general dentists in their mission to provide the highest standard of care.
Born in California and raised in Richmond, Virginia, Dr. Rostami graduated from Virginia Commonwealth Universitywhere she also made the Deans Listwith a double major in Biology and Chemistry. She went on to earn her Doctor of Dental Surgery summa cum laude at Virginia Commonwealth University, followed by post-graduate training at Virginia Commonwealth University, Medical College of Virginia.
I decided to become an oral and maxillofacial surgeon in my third year of dental school, continues Dr. Rostami. I had been shadowing doctors in different departments and took a lot of trauma calls. As a result, I had to perform challenging, complex surgical procedures. It was the combination of medicine and dentistry which drew me to this specialty.
Dr. Rostami provides the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgical procedures, with special interest in dentoalveolar surgery, dental implants, bone grafting surgeries, orthognathic surgery, facial reconstruction, TMJ disorders and cosmetic procedures. She has also trained extensively on in-office sedation and general anesthesia.
A favorite aspect of my work is partnering with general dentists in the community, adds Dr. Rostami. When asked, I help these doctors better understand oral and maxillofacial surgical procedures and benefits. And as partners, we share the common purpose of achieving optimal oral health for patients, continues Dr. Rostami. Theres little more gratifying than working together for the good of a patient.
Dr. Rostami also stresses the importance of keeping in close touch with referring doctors about their patients. I make it a point to keep a general dentist in the loop as regards his patients treatment every step of the way, Dr. Rostami explains. And since these doctors tend to be very busy, I often send text messages with the details so the doctor can get a convenient, instant update.
Dr. Rostami is an active member of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, American College of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, American Dental Association, Greater Washington Association of Women Dentists, Middle Atlantic Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, Maryland State Dental Association and Maryland Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons and Virginia Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. She is a strong believer in volunteer work and has participated in multiple dental outreaches in underserved areas of Virginia. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with family, traveling and various athletic activities. Dr. Rostami looks forward to meeting you and serving your oral surgical and cosmetic needs.
Dr. Rostami is also available to treat emergency cases, including complex extractions, knocked-out teeth, mandible fractures and much more. Our first priority is to relieve your patients discomfort as quickly as possible and then rapidly diagnose and treat the underlying cause, comments Dr. Rostami. Connecting with patients is another favored aspect of my job.
