Rancho Bernardo Dentists - Dr. Nasim Saeedi and Dr. James D. Dickinson 



Dr. Nasim Saeedi

Dr. Nasim Saeedi graduated Cum Laude with Bachelor of Arts in both Chemistry and Biology from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. She then continued her education at UMKC School of Dentistry where she made the Dean’s list for two consecutive semesters. She relocated to San Diego where she is practicing and utilizing the latest technology in all aspects of general dentistry such as endodontics, restorative, and orthodontics.

Having always been tactile, and a great communicator, Dr. Saeedi has discovered through dentistry how to combine her love of people, and helping with a hands-on approach that feels fulfilling on a day to day basis.   Known for her high level of patience and skilled ability to listen to her patient’s needs, Dr. Saeedi is able to provide dental services with great compassion. Dr. Saeedi connects with patients of all ages, which has allowed her to work with a wide array of patients ranging from general dentistry to more challenging dental needs such as pediatric dental care and cosmetic procedures. 

Dr. Saeedi has volunteered for Jay Doc, which allows the underprivileged access to basic dental treatment, as well as KMOM where she offers her time providing dental screenings.  In addition, she is an active member of the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, and San Diego County Dental Society. On the days that she’s not practicing dentistry, she enjoys spending time with her husband at the beach and exploring the city with her friends.
