Oral Surgeon – M. Ali Karimi, DDS
I have had the privilege of practicing oral & maxillofacial surgery in Southern California since 2008. Although I was born and raised in Texas, I now call Southern California my true home. I could never imagine living anywhere else. I graduated from The University of Texas at Dallas (voted one of the top three universities under the age of 50…number one is UC Irvine in case you were wondering). I then had the honor and privilege of attending New York University College of Dentistry. NYU afforded me a great life experience. Going to school in arguably one of the coolest cities in the world opened my eyes to an entirely new way of relating to and understanding people of all cultures. After dental school I jumped on a plane and flew to Los Angeles to complete a one year residency followed by my acceptance into the oral surgery program at Martin Luther King/Charles Drew Medical Center. A jewel of a program in a dense urban area of Los Angeles, I had the honor to work and train under attending surgeons that expected only the best at all times. The discipline I learned during that period of my training has set the foundation for the rest of my life and career. I was able to complete the final two years of my residency back in New York City at St. Vincent Catholic Medical Centers/Caritas. I rotated through hospitals in Jamaica, Queens and the Bronx. Once again I had the opportunity to train with another group of outstanding surgeons in another major urban environment with exposure to people of all walks of life. After residency I moved back to Southern California, working as an independent contractor for corporate dental offices. I have worked in offices from Oakland to Chula Vista and all the way out to Indio. Once again, another amazing experience that taught me more about Southern California and the people that share this wonderful place with me. I have finally settled down in Irvine. I hope that I can use and share everything I have had the honor and privilege to learn with you and your family.
