At A Reason to Smile, we truly care about our patients.  It’s essential that all patients understand why a procedure is going to be performed.  We take the time to communicate so our patients understand their issue, its consequence and the best solution so expectations align with the prescribed treatment.

You’ll be pleased with the one-on-one time with Dr. Samandari since he takes special care to engage with every patient while he provides a high level of attention to each case.  Each team member is also committed and reflects Samandari’s expected level of patient care.

We take great pride in our quality of patient care.
