Meet the Endodontist

Dr. Pham Jimmy

Dr. Jimmy Pham attended the University of California Irvine, majoring in Biology. He went on to earn his D.D.S. degree at the University of Southern California. After 6 years Dr. Pham continued his studies emphasizing in endodontics at Boston University, School of Dental Medicine. With years of experience, he uses his mastered dental skills to bring precision dental practices to all of his patients.

My goal is to make sure my patients are knowledgeable about their oral health. I explain the diagnosis and procedure to every patient and make sure they are comfortable. As a previous general dentist, I understand what their general dentist expects from a great endodontist and I’m confident in my ability to deliver great oral care as well as a great patient experience.

Dr. Pham uses the latest technology to provide endodontic services including root canals and endodontic surgery. His continued passion for education keeps him updated on the latest methods and the best options for his patients.

Dr. Fay Mansouri

She applied to the nations top universities and was accepted by her #1 choice–Temple University. Temple University, located on 110 acre campus in urban Pennsylvania, is ranked #1 in the nation in Endodontics and 6th as the largest provider of professional education including: law, dentistry, medicine, pharmacy, and pediatric medicine.

Dr. Mansouri completed her training at Temple University in 1999, graduating #1 in her class. She received the highest academic award at Temple University: The Louis Grossman Achievement Award. That year Dr. Mansouri passed her National Board Exam and California Board Exam in the top 3%.

Always thirsting for knowledge, Dr. Mansouri keeps up-to-date with the latest advancements in dentistry, radiology, and sterilization. She has always gone beyond what is expected to offer only the best to her patients.

I understand nobody wants to have a root canal, I notice people are nervous and anxious and that’s one of the reasons why they post pone treatment: until the point they can not tolerate the pain. So when they come I want to make sure people remember their experience here in our office as one of the best experiences in a dental office.

Dr. Mansouri’s approach to your treatment always starts with patiently listening to you. Then, after a complete and through examination, she reviews and discusses the diagnosis and treatment options with you. She is honest with her patients and she will always give time to her patients to ask questions and give straight-forward answers.
