Meet Dr. Mahmoodi

Pediatric dentist Roya Mahmoodi

Dr. Roya Mahmoodi, or Dr. Roya as she’s known among her patients, is a board-certified pediatric dentist who is also a proud Bay Area native.

During dental school at UCLA, Dr. Mahmoodi enjoyed treating her pediatric patients because each visit was an opportunity to promote good oral hygiene to a young population that is capable of quickly developing healthy habits. She went on to complete her specialty training in pediatric dentistry at Loma Linda University, where she gained experience in the full breadth of pediatric dental care, including treating patients with special needs. She welcomes the opportunity to continue serving children and adolescents with medically complex conditions.

Dr. Mahmoodi is also a recipient of the 2018 Richard C. Pugh Achievement Award for scoring in the top 3% on the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry Qualifying Exam. When she is not counting teeth and catching sugar bugs, she enjoys cooking, singing karaoke, and spending time with her husband and their puppy.
