“…Because I understand what a terrifying experience a visit to the dentist may be. Let me help.”
Dr. Zahedi is one of only 3 dentist anesthesiologists in all of British Columbia. He is a graduate of Canada's only Dental Anesthesiology program at the University of Toronto, a three-year post-dentistry graduate degree in Ontario. Prior to this, he also attained his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the prestigious University of Toronto. His undergraduate studies were focused on health and kinesiology.
His anesthesiology training consisted of two years of medical rotations in general medicine, emergency, internal medicine, and medical anesthesiology at Toronto General Hospital, Sunnybrook Hospital, as well as the Toronto East General Hospital which provided him with valuable exposure to complex medical and surgical cases. He also has acquired intensive training in Pediatric anesthesia at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. In addition to his hospital-based experience, the remainder of his training was conducted at the Pediatric Surgericentre Clinic (PSC) at the University of Toronto's Faculty of Dentistry providing outpatient ambulatory anesthesia. The PSC clinic manages hundreds of sleep dentistry patients each year, mostly comprised of patients with autism, ADHD, cerebral palsy, Down’s syndrome, and pre-cooperative young children. Overall, the training at these facilities provided Dr. Zahedi with an exceptionally well-rounded education in the field of anesthesiology.
Dr. Zahedi is a faculty member at the University of British Columbia, Faculty of Dentistry in the field of local anesthesia and sedation. He is also an active member of the Canadian Association of Dental Anesthesiologists, American Society of Dentist Anesthesiologists, and the British Columbia Dental Association.
