“I am passionate about what I do best and have invested most of my life in: orthodontics. Not only do I love building confident smiles, I also enjoy interacting with patients. What is exciting about what I do is that no single mouth looks exactly the same, so orthodontics remains challenging and fun. My team and I wholeheartedly believe in giving personal attention to our patients from start to finish.” — Dr. Izadi
Dr. Izadi is a specialist in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics, which is specialty in dentistry that involves the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. He attended Howard University School of Dentistry where he earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery in May of 1992, and graduated in the top four with honors. He then entered the orthodontic program and graduated with a highest ranking, and thus earned his specialty degree in orthodontics.
He started practicing orthodontics in May of 1994 at several busy orthodontic practices in the greater Baltimore area until December of 1998; when Dr. Izadi started his own practice in the Mays Chapel area of Timonium, MD. This is a very convenient location to Lutherville, Cockeysville, Sparks, Monkton, Owings Mills, Phoenix and Towson, and was expanded and totally renovated into a cutting- edge practice in 2014. Dr. Izadi also started his second practice in Cascades at the Potomac Falls Professional Center in Sterling, Virginia in May of 2005.This location has a Pediatric Dentist aboard, and also is convenient to Potomac Falls, Reston, Herndon, Great Falls, McLean, Ashburn, and Vienna.
Dr. Izadi has electively passed the written and oral parts of the American Board of Orthodontics exam in 1994 and 2001, respectively. He also completed the presentation of six special orthodontic cases assigned by the Board from start to finish in February of 2007, and therefore has qualified as a life-time Board Certified Orthodontist.
He has passed two regional board examinations and holds licenses to practice orthodontics in both states of Virginia and Maryland. He constantly takes continuing education courses and will continue to deliver the best possible care that orthodontics may offer for both children and adults.
Dr. Izadi shortly lived in Zurich, Switzerland and then immigrated to the United States when he was 17 years old, and is an Iranian-American. As a child, he grew up in Isfahan; a living museum known for its beautiful antiques, architecture, Persian carpets, artwork and handcrafts. He learned how to weave Persian carpets, and was amazed and appreciative of great intricate carved artwork on wood, copper, and silver by older master craftsmen. He also enjoyed having a fish tank, and collecting antique coins and paper money into his high school years, during which he did a lot of miniature paintings on glass.
Dr. Izadi has always been very independent, and lived in different parts of the State of Maryland, including Lutherville, Silver Spring, Gaithersburg, Hunt Valley (Cockeysville), and briefly in Annandale and Arlington, Virginia during his final year of dental school and orthodontic residency. Dr. Izadi currently resides in Potomac with his wife; a general dentist whose practice is in Bethesda, MD. They have a son and a daughter in addition to a beautiful Mal-Shi named Henry.
When he’s not in the office, Dr. Izadi spends time doing yoga, gardening, and being with his wife and children. When time permits, the family loves to travel, both in the states and abroad, to learn about different heritages and cultures. Above all, Dr. Izadi is passionate about raising responsible, caring, and ethically sound children, and being a supportive husband to his wife.
In addition to his work in the office, Dr. Izadi has supported St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Doctors Without Borders, Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, our local fire departments, and the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank. He and his wife also plan to hold a charity day twice a year, to provide dentistry and orthodontics for children who cannot afford needed treatments.
