Fara T. Afshar, DDS
Dr. Fara graduated from California State University at Fullerton in 2000 with honors from the Department of Biochemistry and considered a career in the medical sciences. She volunteered at local hospitals and private practices throughout Southern California and decided a career in dentistry was her calling. She started her career in dentistry as a front office receptionist, which led to management of the practice.
In the fall of 2007, Dr. Fara gave birth to her only child. Ironically, she received notification from the University of the Pacific two months later of her acceptance to the Class of 2011. After serious deliberation and soul searching, Dr. Fara found the fortitude to accept both challenges head on and complete her dental education successfully, while also raising her son with the most tender care.
Dr. Fara graduated in the spring of 2011 and has been successfully practicing dentistry ever since. She has always possessed superior technical skills and, with the guidance of cosmetic seminars and residencies, she is providing transcendent dental care.
