Meet Dr. Nick Refahi

Dr. Refahi was the top graduate of the University of Maryland College of Dental Surgery in 2006, one of the best dental schools in the entire nation. He then went on to complete an Advanced General Dentistry residency where he advanced his work in dental aesthetics, implant therapy, cosmetic procedures, grafting, and oral reconstruction. Prior to dental school, he had received an undergraduate in Biological Sciences and Biomedical Engineering.

With a commitment to enhancing his level of patient care and expertise, Dr. Refahi has continually advanced his knowledge and skills through advanced training and post-graduate education, including hundreds of hours of continuing education with a specialty focus of dental implant therapy. While this speaks for itself, it has led him to become one of San Diego’s top dental implant providers. Even though he is one of the most educated and skilled dentists in the country, Dr. Refahi insists on co-planning oral care needs with each individual patient. He believes that every patient should have options, so he educates them about the advantages of each one as they may or may not impact their smiles.

Outside of dentistry, he enjoys spending time in the community and enjoying the outdoors with his family. He and his wife enjoy traveling, but they also enjoy active hobbies like hiking, skiing, and water sports with their nieces and nephews.

His professional affiliations and partnerships include the:

  • American Dental Association
  • California Dental Association
  • San Diego County Dental Society
  • Academy of General Dentistry
  • Dawson Academy
  • California Institute
