We appreciate and are dedicated to our families, our patients, our colleagues and the surrounding communities of East Bay, Contra Costa, Alamo, San Ramon and the Bay area, California.

In 2007, we began “Pay It Forward Day” in our local community. Oral surgery is coordinated with the general dentist and completed at a reduced or waived rate for those patients who qualified and could not normally afford to receive their much-needed dental care.
- Goal: 100 coats.
- Results: 350 coats and cash donations.
- Goal: One box of toys.
- Results: Two full boxes.
- Donation: Funds for advertising ads to support the Halloween Kids Safe Carnival.
In 2009, we collaborated with Contra Costa Health Services Health Care for the Homeles to help create a better place for each other, for our children and for our community. Individual providers made small contributions of time, but as a group, we are able to restore people’s oral healthy and dignity, vastly improving the quality of life and increasing the potential these people have to regain employment and provide for their families.
In 2008, we hosted our first charity lecture for the California Dental Association Foundation in an effort to raise money for the foundation’s flagship programs, CDA Cares and the Student Loan Repayment grant. In exchange for a donation amount of their choice, which Dr. Alijanian matches, attendees are given the opportunity to earn CE units and hear Dr. Alijanian speak on various topics, educating them on his specialties, including the All-on-4® Treatment and hard and soft tissue management. As of today, Dr. Alijanian has raised several thousand dollars to support the CDA Foundation, helping those who are less fortunate and selected dental students reach their career goals.
