Your Child's Pediatric Dentist
Rabin Marfatia, DDS
As a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist, my goal is to ensure that your child’s dental visit is enjoyable and positive.
Being a parent of two young children, I understand the importance of entrusting your child to another and to make certain that they are provided the best possible care.
With over 10 years of experience exclusively treating children, I not only enjoy working with kids but also take pride in my patience in communicating with kids and making them feel at ease. I want to inspire and educate your child to care about their teeth by providing a fun and comfortable visit, one in which he/she will remember and look forward to as they grow.
As a native of Irvine, CA I completed elementary, middle, and high school locally. After graduating from Woodbridge High School, I earned my undergraduate degree in Molecular and Cell Biology at the University of California Berkeley followed by my doctorate degree in dentistry at the University of Southern California, School of Dentistry in 2001. Inspired to help young children, I furthered my dental training by completing a 2 year residency in Pediatric Dentistry at Columbia University/New York Presbyterian Hospital; one of the top Children’s Hospitals in the country. Following the completion of this residency, I returned to Southern California where I have been practicing exclusively as a Pediatric Dentist and helping children since 2003. I have extensive experience in behavior management, nitrous oxide sedation, oral sedation and treating patients under IV Sedation. I continue to peruse on going education to remain current in the latest in child healthcare and modern dental techniques.
When not at work, my two amazing children keep my wife and I busy. I also enjoy traveling, being outdoors, and spending time with family and friends. At First Smile Pediatric Dentistry, children’s smiles are our first priority. I want to thank you for trusting us with your most precious loved one and look forward to have them join our dental family.
