Dr. Ozzie

Pediatric Dentist, Owner

Dr. A. Ozzie Jafarnia, or "Dr. Ozzie" as she is known to her patients grew up in the East Bay, and is proud to be Danville's first board certified pediatric dentist through the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.

She graduated from UC Davis with a Bachelor of Science in Microbiology and a minor in Psychology. This special place is where she met her college sweetheart and husband, Ali. Following her undergraduate education, Dr. Ozzie completed a one year post-baccalaureate fellowship with UCSF, where she was part of numerous outreach efforts in the San Francisco area.

Dr. Ozzie then began dental school at the University of Pacific, where she graduated with honors. She was honored with various recognitions, including the Charles Sweet Memorial Award for excellence in pediatric dentistry, as well as induction into the honor society, Tau Kappa Omega. Her special interest in children began while working as a substitute elementary school teacher before dental school and while at UOP, she found that her true passion was in treating the child patient.

Upon graduation, Dr. Ozzie began a rigorous two year hospital-based residency program at one of the premier children's hospitals in the country, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. While training in an institution with such vast resources, Dr. Ozzie was able to treat a wide variety of healthy, trauma and special needs patients. During the program, she was able to work very closely with outstanding attending faculty members as well as the hematology-oncology team, craniofacial team and the emergency department.

However, there is no place like home! Dr. Ozzie and Ali moved back to the East Bay, where they spend much of their free time with their young daughters Caroline, Emme and Lily, as well as their family and friends. Dr. Ozzie began practicing in the area, while also spending teaching at her alma mater in the Pediatric Dentistry department. However, as her family and her practice have grown, she has had to put teaching aside, but looks for forward to continuing once her children are older.

She is a member of several professional organizations, including the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association, California Society of Pediatric Dentistry, and the California Dental Association. She is also gives back to the community through the Give Kids a Smile Program, annually.

One thing you would never guess about me: I had a crazy giant afro in college…throughout my life actually, until I discovered a flat iron.
