Meet the Doctors
Dr. Dehpanah received his Bachelor of Science degree from University of California, at Irvine and he later earned his general dentistry degree (DMD) from Boston University Goldman School of Dentistry (BUGSDM). In 2001, he completed his two-year post-graduate training fellowship in Pediatric Dentistry with rotations at Franciscan Children Hospital for Children and Boston Medical Center. He then pursued an additional one year advanced training fellowship with emphasis in cosmetic and restorative dentistry which lead to a full time clinical and academic faculty position at Boston University in 2002.
Dr. Dehpanah in 2005 decided to settle in North Andover with one of his mentors since 1995, Dr. William Bourassa. In 2007, Drs Dehpanah, Gharib & Associates was established following Dr. Bourassa's retirement.
Today, Dr. Dehpanah is a Clinical Instructor in the Department of Pediatric Dentistry at the BUGSDM and practices dentistry in North Andover with his wife, Dr. Gharib. In his office, unlike most pediatric dentists he believes in a non-sedative approach and practices focusing on behavior management . Dr. Dehpanah states: “my early exposure to the late Dean Spencer N. Frankl’s approach towards his patients crystalized the importance of human psychology and child development in a successful non-sedative treatment approach in non-hospital setting.”
Dr. Dehpanah is an active member of the American Dental Society, Massachusetts Dental Society, Massachusetts Associates of Pediatric Dentistry, American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, and the Merrimack Valley Dental Society. Dr. Dehpanah is affiliated with Franciscan Hospital for Children and Boston Medical Center.
