Meet The Doctor


Dr. Maryam

Dr. Maryam

Dr. Maryam, as her friends and patients like to call her, is a South Bay native who decided there would be no better place to set up her practice and raise her family than in the beautiful city of Manhattan Beach. After receiving her B.S. in Biochemistry from UCLA she went on to achieve her D.D.S. degree from the University of the Pacific in San Francisco, considered by most to be one of the top Dental Schools in the nation. Dr. Maryam’s desire to bring her patients the latest in overall dental health makes her immerse herself in continuing education every year, leading her to become the first and as of now, only woman to ever achieve the status of Diplomate of the International Board of Orthodontics, the highest level obtainable. She has completed a yearlong residency with Tufts University of Medicine on sleep apnea. In November 2011 she achieved the status of Diplomate and Master of Excellence with the American Board of Craniofacial pain. In 2014 she achieved the status of Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine.

Dr. Maryam is a General Dentist that is qualified in the field of functional orthodontics, TMJ, snoring and sleep apnea with over 24 years of post-graduate studies and experience in those areas. She has been trained by some of the world’s most renowned experts in the field of orthodontics, TMJ and sleep disorders. Her non-invasive treatment separates her from the traditional orthodontic providers who still extract teeth and use headgear, or treat with surgical intervention.

She enjoys bringing big beautiful smiles to her patients’ lives, but is driven by the fact she can also improve their overall quality of life while doing it. Dr. Maryam has successfully relieved her patients of Migraines, Allergies, Sleep Apnea, Snoring, ADHD, Tourette’s, and Head & Neck pain, just to name a few. As Dr. Maryam likes to say “It is your life, your health and that of your children, take the time to ask the questions to get it right.”

Hobbies include: Painting, Playing piano, Volleyball, Dancing, and Cooking.
