Meet Our Bethesda Periodontist: Dr. Raha Yousefi
Welcome to Bethesda Dental Implant Center! I’m Dr. Raha Yousefi, and I love getting to know our community, one patient at a time. I appreciate each of my patients for who they are and respect each person’s opinions and ideas. I know that communication is key to my job, and I love talking to and learning about my patients.
I graduated with a bachelor’s degree from the University of Maryland before enrolling in dental school at Howard University. After graduation, I went on to specialize in Periodontics at the University of Pittsburgh where I also earned my master’s in Public Health.
In addition to my formal schooling, I am enthusiastic about pursuing continued education both on a local and a national level. I feel that it is important to keep current with evolving technology, techniques, and materials to provide state-of-the-art treatment options for my patients.
As a member of the District of Columbia Dental Society and, local chapters of the American Dental Association (ADA), I routinely participate in meetings that highlight issues that directly affect our area. I am also a member of the American Academy of Periodontology, the Greater Washington Academy of Women Dentists, and the Greater Washington Academy of Dental Studies. My strong public health background has made me a well-rounded practitioner with expertise in a variety of dental disciplines.
I have lived in the DC metro area my whole life and I love being here. My husband, Vince, and I stay busy chasing around our three boys! Typically, you’ll see us enjoying the city at parks, festivals, and kid-friendly restaurants.
