Meet Dr. Shahryar Sefidpour

“After 20 years of practice, I am still as passionate as the first day I started in orthodontics. Seeing the positive impact my work has on patients’ quality of life and self-confidence every day is always inspiring. The privilege to see young patients blossom to adulthood and now trust me to treat their own children is beyond special.” — Dr. Sefidpour

Education and Experience

Dr. Sefidpour attended San Jose State University from 1978 through 1985, where he received a Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in mechanical engineering.

After graduating with his engineering degree and getting his first paycheck from his first job, Dr. Sefidpour asked his dentist for a referral to an orthodontist. The effect of correcting his malocclusion and getting the smile he always wanted made a profound difference in his life. After experiencing firsthand the positive effect of orthodontic treatment on his self-confidence, Dr. Sefidpour made the decision that this was what he wanted to do as a profession.

He attended the University of California-San Francisco School of Dentistry, where he was awarded his Doctorate of Dental Surgery. After receiving his DDS, Dr. Sefidpour completed a two-year residency at the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco, where he received a certificate and a Master of Science in orthodontics.

After having practiced for 20 years, Dr. Sefidpour understands that continuing education is essential to keep up with advances in orthodontic treatment methods. Thanks to his continual studies, he has implemented leading-edge technologies, such as digital scanning, 3D printing, and cone beam scanning into his practice to provide consistent, high-quality treatment to his patients.

Dr. Sefidpour is an active member of the BC College of Dental Surgeons, American Association of Orthodontists, and California Dental Association.

Outside the Office

Originally from the Bay Area of California, Dr. Sefidpour has lived in Vancouver since 2009. He and his wife of nearly three decades have two beautiful children. When he’s not in the office, Dr. Sefidpour likes to exercise and restore vintage cars, and above all, spend time with his family.
