Dr. Amir Mirzaei
Doctor of Dental Surgery
Dr. Mirzaei started his undergraduate science degree at Concordia University in Montréal in 1987.

Besides all of the important anatomical courses such as Histology, Neuroanatomy, Physiology, Immunology, and Microbiology, he developed a big interest in Head and Neck Anatomy.
The passion for becoming a Dental Surgeon was more realistic now. While growing up, he had enjoyed doing fine woodwork and making artwork such as necklaces, earrings, hairclips, penholders, and jewelry boxes. “With the love for science and dentistry and being so dexterous as well as my passion towards helping people, it was just a natural choice for me to become a dentist,” says Amir.

Life enrichment is about maintaining perfect physical, mental, and social well-being in a balanced way to give us a sense of fulfillment and a stage of ever happiness.
