Nima Massoomi, DMD, MEd, MD

Dr. Massoomi was born and raised in New York.  He grew up in northern New York, adjacent to the Adirondack Mountains, the site of the infamous 1980 Olympics. He attended St. Lawrence University majoring in Biology and Chemistry and graduated Phi Beta Kappa.  Subsequently, he moved to Boston to pursue a cancer research position at Boston University Medical School, studying the gene expression of Collagen and Elastin. After a few years, he moved to Pennsylvania to continue the same project. This is where Nima realized that being a so-called “lab rat” was not his calling.  He quickly shifted gears and pursued a dual-degree at the University of Pennsylvania Dental School and School of Education. While in dental school, he was one of only 10 students in the US to win a prestigious research fellowship at the National Institute of Health (NIH/NIDCR).  With the hopes of pursing an academic teaching position in the future, he decided to pursue a six year residency program in Oral and Maxillofacial surgery at Vanderbilt University.

This is where he attended medical school, completed a one year general surgery internship and his residency in Oral Surgery.  Subsequently, after seeing the devastating effects of facial trauma during his residency he partook in a Facial Cosmetic Surgery Fellowship at the Ohio State University under Dr. T. William Evans fine tuning his aesthetic surgery skills.  Finally in the summer of 2008, he decided to hit the road.  He moved to Northern California and co-founded “Silicon Valley Surgical Arts (SVSA).  The aim: to create a ‘one-stop- shop for anything related to the face, from facial trauma to oral surgical procedures, including the beautification of the face and smile.  Then in 2010 he expanded his practice to San Francisco and formed a second office in the heart of the financial district.  Part of his goal was to create more convenient access to care for his patients that may live in silicon valley.  Dr. Massoomi is Board-Certified in Oral and Maxillofacial surgery and teaches at the University of Pacific School of Dentistry.  He spends his free time biking, hiking, running and searching for the best burger in San Francisco.
