He then spent two enjoyable years in the Stony Brook Post Graduate Endodontic Program, where he received training in cutting edge endodontic thinking, techniques and skills. He excels in the techniques of diagnostics, microscopy, oral surgery, ultra-Sonics, rotary instrumentation and electronics.

Throughout his career, Dr. Sedaghat has worked hard to earn the respect of his peers and colleagues.
