Dr. Abbas Alex Rajabi, DDS

Hello friends,

My name is Abbas Alexander Rajabi. I was born in 1966 in Iran in a family of seven siblings of which I was the sixth child. I have three sisters and three brothers one of whom passed away a few years back. All my sisters live in Bay Area with their families. My oldest brother lives in south of France and my other brother lives with his family back in Iran.

As a child, I was very outgoing and active in sports. Although I always had a 4.0 GPA, I was a frequent visitor to the principal office due to my gimmicks and silly behaviors. I finished high school at the age of 18 and after spending two mandatory years in service, I moved to Paris, France, where I spent almost three years trying to continue my educations. Unfortunately, due to many difficulties and disadvantages I was unable to achieve that goal in France.

In 1989, I moved to Bay Area and a year later I started my college educations. In 1995, I got married to a classmate of mine and two years later she gave birth to my only child, Jasmine. Unfortunately, our marriage ended 9 years later. I graduated from UC Berkeley in 1996 with a bachelor degree in molecular and cell biology and moved to southern California a year later to attend USC Dental School. During my entire time in Dental School, I worked two full time jobs to support my family. And finally, in 2001, I graduated from USC with a DDS degree.

Although it has been a difficult and challenging journey, the experience is a rewarding one. I am now in a position to help my fellow human beings achieve the optimal oral health they deserve. My life experiences have made me more aware of each patient’s unique situation and more compassionate and responsive to their needs. My only hope is that I can pay back to the society that gave me a chance in the darkest of the hours when the road was long and the future didn’t look bright.

I have been practicing Family and Cosmetic Dentistry since 2001. I started my own private practice in 2003 and since then I have made it my life mission to provide exquisite and quality dentistry for my patients. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of California at Berkeley and my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from University of Southern California School of Dentistry, USC. Since then, I have consistently strove to provide excellent care for my patients by the way of my compassion, skills and knowledge and through my commitment to continuing education and state-of-the-art technology. I take pride in being honest, patient, compassionate, good communicator, and able to relate to my patients and put to ease any fears about any given procedure.

My goal is to provide you with the most pleasant dental experience possible. I believe that the most important aspect of dentistry is to educate patients about their oral health and how to maintain a healthy mouth. I believe in the prevention rather than treatment. I also believe that Dentistry, like any other medical fields, is about treating the patient as a whole person not just a small part of them.


Dr. Rajabi is a great dentist, skilled in many areas of dentistry. He is professional, personable, and highly educated yet approachable. He is caring; he listens and is interested in you and your needs, generous and honest. He is also very fair when it comes to cost and payments. The staff support is welcoming, helpful, knowledgeable and skilled. After disappointing experiences with dentists; coming to O.C. Dental Group was like finding a safe haven. We are grateful for the quality of his work and we highly recommend Dr. Rajabi and his staff. Mark and Susan Witt, Irvine, CA

One of a kind dentist; He treats everyone with care no matter what kind of insurance they have. He will not push you to do unnecessary work. My kids love him and even though I moved from the area, we still drive 80 miles for our dental appointments. Highly recommended, go see for yourself! (

Best dental experience and the best money I ever spent. I would not trust my teeth with anyone else ever. If you want the best and honest, he is the dentist for you. Staff are also great and very accommodating. (

Unique and experienced dentist: by Shadi, Oct. 15, 2010. The service is impeccable; the facility is very up to date. Everyone is extremely nice and they are on top of their game with technology. I was seen at my appointment time with virtually no waiting. Dr. Rajabi took take care of my problem with expertise and I had very little discomfort afterwards. I have referred many family members and friends who need dental work. (

I highly recommend Dr Rajabi I have started seeing him since last two years when first I went to visit my family in Irvine and I had some issue and pain in my upper tooth while I was there. I was referred to him by one of my family member in Irvine. He end up to do a beautiful crown job on my tooth .I had to go back to see him another time to finish the job from Northern California to Southern but that was Ok because i got to see my family again and I i was extremely happy with his work, patience and his caring personality. Plus his charges are so fair compare to my town in Berkeley i found it affordable. Since then he is my dentist and I don’t mind to travel from here to Irvine to see him for my needs with my teeth, cleaning etc... The staffs are very sweet and professional (

I just had x-rays and a cleaning with Dr. Rajabi and his staff: they have a very state-of-the-art facility, with high-tech tools that made the process go quickly and effortlessly. The doctor reported that my teeth were in great shape, while another dentist (at another location) had told me that I had cavities to fill just eight months prior. The hygienist actually took the time to teach me how to properly floss and brush my teeth, and I was given a free electric toothbrush and other goodies as I departed. All in all a great experience!

Review of Dr. Abbas Rajabi - General Dentist Posted On DR. Oogle Dentist Guide Going to see the dentist is no fun task, but boy does this office make it painless. Dr. Rajabi is great at making your visit fast and smooth. The dental assistant was very friendly and concerned about my comfort level- having a plastic tube in my mouth while x-rays were taken is never comfortable, but she tried her best to make it as painless as possible. Dr. Rajabi was fantastic. He explained what was going on in my mouth with great detail. He was also detailed with the cleaning. I will be back for sure!
