More about Peyman Raissi, DDS - "Dr. PeyRay"
As a dentist, you are required to obtain 40 hours of Continuing Education (CE) every 2 years. Somehow, I managed to do over 900 hours of CE in that same time period. Most of those hours were earned in the fields of implant dentistry, oral surgery, prosthodontics, periodontics and oral sedation. I feel it is my duty to my patients to have a passion for constant and never-ending improvement of my skills and knowledge.
Why am I so passionate about helping and caring for my patients? Following graduation from dental school when I first started practicing dentistry, I had a patient who was a 95 year old, beautiful and kind woman. She came in for a consultation because she only had a few teeth left and she told me that she wanted to be able to smile again for her "great grandchildren" After I educated her on the advantages of Implant Supported Dentures, soon after she became the oldest patient on whom I have performed Dental Implant surgery. She was so happy with the result that she insisted on giving me a big hug, and she told me that I had changed her life. It was a priceless moment that I will never forget. I realized in that moment that we are in such a critical and unique position to be able to treat people and help them get out of pain and make them smile and be happy to live their life to the fullest.
It's truly a blessing to be able to offer these services to many people who can't chew and eat normal food, or those who have many dental abscesses and pain resulting from years of neglect. Neglect not by choice, but by financial limitation. I began working towards a singular mission: to improve my abilities and process, so that I could provide my services at the most affordable and reasonable prices for my patients and give them a second chance.
We only get one opportunity in this life, and I want to be able to look back and confidently say that I helped as many people as I could.
On a personal note, the greatest compliment a human being can pay to himself is to encounter a challenge and to arrive at a successful solution to that challenge. The American author Henry David Thoreau, who wrote Walden and "Civil Disobedience," once wrote that "the good thing about doing a thing well done is having done it." My greatest anticipation in my pursuits toward the field of dentistry will be the evidence of having met my challenges and of recognizing my successes written in the smiles of my patients.
