Continuing at UAB for an additional year, Dr. Karimipour obtained a sub-specialty training in Maxillofacial Prosthodontics to serve the prosthetic and medical needs of patients who have lost physical structures (through cancer, congenital and developmental defects) of the head and neck. He fabricates his own prostheses, both oral and facial, in-house and receives personal fulfillment by providing a unique service to help improve the quality of life of such patients.

He also volunteers at the Department of Prosthodontics and Operative Dentistry at Tufts and works part-time as a prosthodontist at the Veteran Affairs hospital in Jamaica Plain.
His expertise includes treating patients in all phases of prosthetic dentistry such as full-mouth rehabilitation, with and without dental implants, smile makeovers and aesthetics, Botox, TMD treatment, sleep apnea, fixed restorations (crowns, bridges, veneers, onlays, inlays), removable prostheses (partials, complete dentures), obturators for cleft lip and palate, and also implant or adhesive-retained nasal, auricular, and orbital prostheses. Dr. Karimipour is also Invisalign certified.
During his spare time, Dr. Karimipour enjoys playing table tennis and once placed second at the NCTTA. Hiking, bicycling, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and exploring the New England area with his wife and daughters are also among his favorite things to do.
