As a young child, Dr. Hedi Kermani always looked forward to visiting her own dentist’s and orthodontist’s offices. She especially always enjoyed seeing the “cool” equipment and gadgets used at her orthodontist’s office, and knew from a very young age that one day she would become a great orthodontist with her own “cool” gadgets and toys!
This is the same feeling she strives to bring to her own patients. She loves the look of each new patient when they first enter her practice. Dr. Kermani’s goal is for her patients to love visiting her office, both for the treatment they receive and for the fun, warm, and friendly environment.
Dr. Hedi Kermani’s awards and recognitions have been exemplary. During her undergraduate college training, she was a recipient of many awards, including the prestigious UCLA Alumni Scholarship, Dean’s List Awards, and cum laude honors. She graduated from the UCLA School of Dentistry with many honors and was among a select few to receive the Advanced Education in General Dentistry training in conjunction with her doctorate in dental surgery during her dental school years.
She subsequently achieved one of her prime goals by entering into and completing her orthodontic residency training at the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania. During this period, her master’s degree thesis was published in the American Journal of Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics, a highly respected orthodontic journal and magazine.
Dr. Kermani continued her specialty and advanced training in the areas of Invisalign® and lingual braces. She has since accomplished another milestone standard for excellence in orthodontics, that of becoming a board-certified orthodontist: a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics.
She is also an active member of many dental societies such as the American Association of Orthodontists, the American Board of Orthodontics, the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists, and the Orange County Dental Society. Dr. Kermani believes strongly in keeping up to date with advances in orthodontics by attending continuing education courses on a regular basis.
Dr. Hedi Kermani and her family have lived in and contributed to the greater Newport community for many years. Dr. Kermani has two wonderful children and is married to Dr. Michael Kermani: a prestigious ophthalmologist who also practices in the city of Newport Beach. Both Drs. Kermani take great pride in their community and are involved in many community events. Together they provide the highest levels of care for local families, something they find to be very rewarding.
Dr. Kermani has remained actively involved with local schools and participates in volunteer programs whenever she has a chance. She enjoys going to the beach, hiking, playing tennis, and traveling. She is proud to introduce and share with you Newport Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry, where you can truly achieve your “Best Smile Ever!”
