Dr. Farrah Zaery
Dr. Farrah Zaery received her undergraduate degree in 1987 from the University of Utah Dental School. She continued her education at the University of Missouri–Kansas City, graduating from the dental school there in 1991. Other distinctions include honors in pediatric dentistry as well as both geriatric dentistry and cosmetic dentistry continuums.
She started a new practice in Johnson City, Kansas, right out of dental school. Dr. Zaery practiced there for years, and her son Arshia joined the practice upon his graduation in 2010. In May 2017, they decided to combine their loves for dentistry and sunny California by opening Sunshine Smiles of Orange County.
Dr. Zaery is passionate about her interactions with patients. She loves talking to people and developing relationships with patients that go much deeper than just teeth. Dr. Zaery enjoys meeting generations of families and hearing about their lives. Although it gives her much joy to help people and give them the teeth they have always wanted, she cherishes the people and personalities behind the smiles.
Dr. Zaery and her husband spent the past 30 years in Kansas, but she notes that 20 of those years have been working toward transitioning their lives to Southern California. She cites the weather and their love for family and friends here as welcome changes. Dr. Zaery calls being in Mission Viejo the “perfect choice.” She loves hiking, going to the beach, and spending time with friends and family—especially her two beautiful granddaughters.
