Neda Modaresi, DDS, MS
Board Certified Pediatric Dentist Specialist
“Caring for children has always been a passion of mine and I feel so fortunate for loving what I do as a pediatric dentist. Building a trusting relationship with each family by having an open heart and mind is what I strive for. Being a mom to my little one has enabled me to fully appreciate all the hard work parents do to provide the very best for their children. Being out in the nature hiking or biking, traveling, practicing yoga, reading and cooking for our little family are my favorite activities when not working.”
