Dr. Arezou Roufegari Nejad
Dr. Arezou Jad (Arezou Roufegari Nejad) holds multiple dental degrees, including a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from Tehran Azad University, a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) from McGill University, and a Master of Science in Dentistry (MSC) from Montreal University.
She has been practicing dentistry since 2005, with a focus on endodontics, cosmetic dentistry, and periodontics. She is an avid proponent of continuing education, and regularly attends advanced courses that allow her to provide her patients with the latest and best cutting-edge techniques in dentistry.
Dr. Jad strongly believes in not only delivering high-quality dentistry but in providing a great patient experience. Her kind and caring manner creates a warm and comforting environment, and she and her staff endeavor to provide every patient with a positive dental experience.
However, what sets Dr. Jad apart as a dentist is her eye for beauty. She studied art as a child, which developed into a talent for, and love of, multiple artistic mediums, including acrylic, charcoal, and sculpture. Her love of shapes, forms, textures and colors is a perfect complement to her work in aesthetic and restorative dentistry.
Dr. Jad speaks English, French, Farsi, and Turkish. In her spare time, she enjoys travelling, adventurous outdoor activities and spending time with family and friends.
