Dr. Yazdi - Pediatric Dentist in Castro Valley, CA
Shervin Yazdi, DDS - Pediatric Dentist

Striving to maintain a high standard of care for my patients my intent is that all professional care delivered at my office will be of the best possible quality my staff and I can provide for each patient. Efforts are made to obtain cooperation from children by the use of warmth, friendliness, persuasion, humor, gentleness, kindness, and understanding. We are a full service office and if sedation is desired we are well equipped to provide that for you. Personally, I enjoy building, flying, crashing, and repairing radio control airplanes and helicopters.  I also enjoy sprinting at the local track, swimming, and ball room dancing with my wife Cassandra.
