Dr. Bahar Esmaili, DDS

Dr. Bahar Esmaili grew up in Iran and immigrated to the United States when she was 20 years old to peruse her dream of becoming a doctor. Since graduating with honors from the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine in 2009, she has completed numerous advanced Continuing Education courses in the fields of craniofacial pain, TMJ disorder, and airway dentistry, and currently focuses her clinical practice on the connection between oral and whole-body health. She holds the prestigious position of being one of 24 North American consultants with 3M as part of the Council of Innovative Dentistry. More than just a practitioner, she is a passionate educator and goes out of her way to help her patients understand the 'why' behind the 'what' of the issues for which they're seeking help. She is a certified personal trainer, specializing in posture corrective and is passionate about interconnectedness of the human body - from head & neck posture to jaw joint alignment to facial muscle tonicity to gait. In light of her profound realization that straight teeth cannot fit on crooked bodies, she is on a mission to enlighten practitioners of all kinds of their ability to impact compensatory mechanisms that ultimately lead to the breakdown of our bodies and our health.
