Meet our Endodontists

Dr. Mazdeyasnan (Mazdey), DDS FICD

Dr. Afshin Mazdeyasnan (Mazdey) is a board-certified Endodontist and has been providing dental care for patients in the San Fernando Valley and greater Los Angeles area since 1993. Having grown up in the San Fernando Valley and having graduated from Taft High School in Woodland Hills Dr. Mazdey knows the ins and outs of the Valley and harbors a deep love for the people in this community. He completed his undergraduate studies at California State University, Northridge.

Throughout his exploration of various fields at CSUN, Dr. Mazdey found that dentistry combined his passion for science and learning as well as his desire to help others and give back to his community. He received his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Southern California (USC) School of Dentistry in 1993. After enjoying 10 years of general practice, Dr. Mazdey sought specialty training in Endodontics. He completed his advanced Endodontic training at USC as chief resident under the tutelage of world-renowned Endodontist Dr. James H. Simon. He received his post graduate / post doctorate certificate in Endodontics from USC in 2005.

Dr. Mazdey is a board-certified Endodontist having earned diplomat status from the American Board of Endodontics, among only a small percentage of California Endodontists and only a select few in the San Fernando Valley. A Board-Certified Endodontist is an endodontist that has completed all three of the certifying examinations to obtain Diplomat status with the American Board of Endodontists. Completing the three examinations (written, case portfolio, and oral examinations), Dr. Mazdey has committed himself to achieving the highest level of knowledge in the specialty of endodontics. This is a recognition that only 15% of all Endodontists in the US have received.

In addition, Dr. Mazdey is serving as an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Clinical Dentistry at the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC teaching part time in the advance Endodontic Clinic. He is an active member of the American Association of Endodontists, American Dental Association, California Dental Association, and American Board of Endodontics College of Diplomats. He has served as the president of the San Fernando Valley Dental Society, Southern California Academy of Endodontics, and the San Fernando Valley Dental Society Foundation. He continues to serve as a board member of both the Dental Society and the Foundation; he volunteers many hours in serving and treating patients through charitable programs.

Dr. Mazdey is an active medical staff member in the Department of Surgery at the Northridge Hospital Medical Center and has served on the Medical Executive Committee.

Dr. Mazdey and our Endodontic team at Mid Valley Endodontics strongly believe that there are two critical components to a successful Endodontic practice: a satisfied patient and a satisfied referring general dentist. Having been a general dentist for over 10 years prior to achieving specialization in Endodontics, Dr. Mazdey understands the importance placed on providing patients with comprehensive dental care. His technologically advanced Endodontic practice, combined with proven and evidence-based techniques, provides patients with the most up-to-date treatment.

Aside from his passion for dentistry and Endodontics, Dr. Mazdey enjoys golfing, hiking, supporting his favorite sports teams like the Los Angeles Lakers, and spending quality time with his family and friends. He is grateful to call the San Fernando Valley home and resides here with his wife, two daughters, and Shih-Tzu dog. He looks forward to continue providing empathetic, advanced, and quality Endodontic care for patients in his beloved community.
