Meet Dr. Josie Dovidio, DDS


As a dentist, Dr. Dovidio loves helping her patients and making their experience more comfortable, as opposed to an event to dread. Her goals are to create long-term relationships between our team and our patients that establish a sense of trust based upon our tradition of warmth and caring, provide dental services and techniques with an emphasis on patient education and prevention, and do both at a level higher than our patients have ever experienced.

Meet Dr. Sahar Yaftaly, DMD

Her passion for dentistry began by volunteering at the Free Clinic of Simi Valley where she met her mentor, Dr. Josie Dovidio, who inspired her to pursue a career in dentistry. After graduating from UCLA with an undergraduate degree in Psychobiology, Dr. Yaftaly attended the Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health in Mesa, AZ where she received her DMD (Doctor of Dental Medicine) and certificate in public health with a dental emphasis. She then returned to California to complete a General Practice Residency at USC, during which she treated Veterans in downtown Los Angeles and medically compromised patients at the LAC+USC Medical Center.
