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


Dr. Sahar Yaftaly was born in Granada Hills, CA and grew up in Simi Valley. 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.

Our Mission


We like our patients to feel at home when they come to our office – to enter as patients and leave as friends. Our purpose is to provide quality care for the entire family, with the advantages of modern technology paired with the comfort of an old-town private practice.

How should I be brushing at home?

Patients are often confused about how they are supposed to be taking care of their teeth once they get home from their check ups. There are several schools of thought, but this video outlines the techniques that have been best studied and provides the most consistent results for most patients. Of course, if this technique does not seem to be working for you, don't hesitate to ask us to modify this technique to best suit your specific situation. Happy brushing!
