Rastakhiz Family Dental

We want your dental experience to be exceptional.

We are a locally-owned family dental practice offering gentle personalized dental care with a focus on the comfort of our patients, the quality of our work, and professional integrity. We are committed to providing the best dental experience for our patients and stand behind our work.

Using the newest imaging technology, we update you about your oral health during your dental exam and explain all treatment options (if needed), pros and cons for each (including no treatment), and cost and insurance coverage. We will answer your questions with transparency and help you make an informed decision based on your priorities and concerns.

We provide most dental treatments here at our office. That includes routine checkup and cleaning for the entire family, filling, root canal, implant restoration, extraction, orthodontics through Invisalign, veneer, denture, crown, and bridge. However, if your specific case benefits from seeing a specialist, we work closely with the most reputable specialists in Palo Alto and Menlo Park and our team will help with facilitating your visit with them.

We strive for a long-term relationship with our patients and hope to see multiple generations in your family.

Our Happy Patients

I finally found my favorite dental group in the Bay area. I recently visited Dr. Rastakhiz's office for a semi-urgent issue with one of my teeth. I... found Dr. Rastakhiz and his team very professional, patient, attentive, and truly kind. Dr. Rastakhiz spent a lot of time with me explaining the complication with my teeth and all the possible treatments that could potentially resolve it, and he made sure to answer all my questions very patiently. I find all the technicians, hygienists, and even the receptionist at Dr. Rastakhiz's office very professional and nice.In the past couple of years, I've been putting off my regular dental check-up because of a negative experience that I had with a different dental group in a different place. But, after visiting Dr. Rastakhiz's office, now I really like to regularly go back and make sure that I take good care of my teeth with the help of Dr. Rastakhiz's group.read more

I appreciate this dental office so much when I come in after working. With a name change and insurance challenges, the staff have been so helpful and... patient. I feel safe and heard when I have come for appointments. The dentist is respectful and gives valuable feedback for me to take better care of my teeth and I don't feel shamed for forgetting to floss! We all have lives and the staff at this office are kind and welcoming. The music is calm and relaxing. I always feel like I can share as well as ask questions. Highly recommend!read more

An excellent service. Dr Rastakhiz explains everything he does really nicely, is respectful, and keeps things interesting with a pleasant... personality. In this covid world he and his assistants take extra precautions by wearing a face mask under a face shield along with protective clothing. Very impressed with what seems like the latest technology in dentistry, like the panorama teeth xrays. Most importantly, I feel very confident with his expertise -- pointing out issues (if there are any) and whether or not something needs to be done about it right away or can it wait.read more
