Dr. A. Gerald Michels


I approach my patients the same way I try to live my life, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." At Woodside Dental Care we treat all our patients as if they were family. We do our very best to provide them with the latest and best forms of treatment, at a fee that is affordable.

I graduated from the University of Southern California Dental School in 1967 and have over 40 years of dental experience. When I was just out of school I worked for other dentists and experienced the good, and the not so good sides of dentistry.

I have been married (to the same woman) for over 40 years and we have 8 children - 7 sons and 1 daughter. We currently have 12 grand-children, and expect more soon. I have numerous hobbies, but the focus of my life is my family.


Dr. Maryam Sabet


My philosophy is centered on recognizing each individual and their needs as unique. I take pride in my ability to listen, understand, and communicate clearly.
 
My professional education consists of a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychobiology from UCLA, and a Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the UCLA School of Dentistry. Upon graduation, I joined UCLA’s clinical faculty and founded a private practice in the San Fernando Valley. Throughout my career, I have authored a number of dental publications, held various lecturing engagements, and received several professional and clinical awards. I have served the Woodside family since 2001.
 
I am empowered by professional and personal growth: In addition to keeping abreast with cutting-edge developments in dentistry, I enjoy reading, exercising, and traveling to explore new cultures and foods. I endeavor to be the best dentist and person that I can be, and promise to always conduct myself with honor and integrity.
 
I am grateful for the opportunity to take care of you, and will strive to make your experience at Woodside Dental Care exceptional.

 


Dr. Ramtin Riahi


I believe the single most important attribute in a dentist is the ability to create an environment in which the patient is relaxed and comfortable.  This can be achieved by thoroughly listening to the patient, understanding his/her needs, and genuinely sympathizing with the patient's past experiences as related to dentistry.  I pride myself in being an empathetic listener who truly understands the needs of my patients. 

I graduated from the University of Southern California in 2002.  From the beginning, I surrounded myself with caring and dedicated mentors whose mission was to provide the utmost care and quality dentistry to their patients.  Consequently, I have adopted those same attributes and have fully and successfully utilized them in my career. 

In an effort to provide my patients with the latest and most advanced techniques in dentistry, I have attended numerous continuing education courses over the past years.  Among my certifications are implant placement and restoration, Invisalign, Six Month Smile for quick realignment of teeth, and oral conscious sedation for the highly anxious patient.

 



Dr. Kristi Meister


I entered the field of dentistry because I wanted to help others. I enjoy getting to know each of my patients so that we can build a trusting relationship and work together to achieve their goals. My patients’ best interests are always my main priority.

I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara where I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Cell and Developmental Biology. I then earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of California, Los Angeles. I am a member of the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, and the Santa Barbara/Ventura County Dental Society.

My husband and I live in Oxnard. When we are not working, we enjoy riding our bikes, watching movies, playing with our dog, and spending time with friends and family. I look forward to meeting you and your family, and making your visit a pleasant and relaxing experience!
