Having earned an academic scholarship, he completed his undergraduate degree at the University of California Los Angeles. He earned a BS in molecular genetics as well as microbiology and immunology then went on to the prestigious University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. There, he earned his doctorate of dental medicine and was recognized with multiple honors. He took his new found knowledge to the Lancaster Cleft Palate Clinic, the oldest clinic of its type in the United States. This is where Dr. Nima, as he is affectionaly known, discovered his love for treating people of all ages and his respect for orthodontics.
With this in his heart and mind, he went back to the University of Pennsylvania to earn his specialty certificates in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. To further serve his future patients, he went beyond this experience and completed the two-year program at the Roth-Williams International Society of Orthodontists. He is one of a select group to study in this world famous program. He is the only Georgia orthodontist who has received training from this one-of-a-kind institute.
For Dr. Nima, orthodontics is more than just creating a straight smile. He practices with the belief that orthodontists are health care providers who also provide cosmetic services. He strives to educate his patients and their families about how the face, jaws, and chewing systems grow and develop and affect someone’s life.
Dr. Nima enjoys membership in the Roth-Williams International Society of Orthodontists, the American Association of Orthodontics (AAO), Southern Association of Orthodontists (SAO), and American Dental Association (ADA).
