Her desire is to make every patient feel as if they are part of the family and offers enthusiasm while providing high quality comprehensive dental care. Dr. Sahar Yaftaly is a Simi Valley native and is thrilled to be able to serve the community in which she was raised.

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.


CareCredit is a healthcare credit card that allows you to pay for necessary or cosmetic dental work. It has been offered by dental offices for 30 years, and Dr. Dovidio recommends it as an option when other resources are unavailable. Some of the services that are covered by CareCredit include such elective services as veneers, dental alignment (Invisalign), braces and retainers, and dentures.  However, it will also cover necessary services such as regular check-ups, endodontic procedures, periodontal disease prevention, ceramic fillings and crowns, and dental cleanings.

You can apply for CareCredit online by clicking here. A decision on your application is provided instantly, and you can use CareCredit the same day you apply. As it is a credit card, CareCredit can be used repeatedly, and it will keep your dental care costs separate from any other credit card purchases you make. Special financing offers may also apply to your situation.

CareCredit can also be used to pay your dental insurance deductibles and co-payments and in combination with other credit card or cash payment arrangements. Please contact our office and speak to us about applying for CareCredit to take care of your dental financial needs.
