A graduate from the University of Los Angeles, CA, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, Dr. Mehdi decided to pursue a dental career after publishing an article on evidence-based dentistry and attended Tufts University School of Dental Medicine on a merit scholarship. After graduating, he went on to attend a three-year dental residency program specializing in Prosthodontics at the University of Alabama and VA Hospital at Birmingham, Alabama.
Throughout his education, Dr. Mehdi achieved awards for excellence in clinical achievement and skills in operative dentistry. He also took time while pursuing his Master’s Degree in Dental Materials to provide oral health care to a non-profit organization dedicated to meeting the needs of children in underserved rural communities. He took an additional year at UAB to obtain sub-specialty training in Maxillofacial Prosthetics to meet the prosthetic and medical needs of patients who have lost physical structures of the head and neck due to cancer, congenital issues, or developmental defects. He fabricates oral and facial prostheses in-house and is proud to provide this important service to improve the quality of life of patients who require it.
