Dr. Ahmad Karimi, a lifelong native from Torrance, is originally from Salt Lake City, UT. He attended University of California, Irvine, where he completed his undergraduate studies. He then graduated from the Roseman College of Dental of Medicine with distinction, in the top 10% of his class.

Dr. Karimi has spent the past 4 years in private practice in southern California. While he loves providing routine restorative and cosmetic dentistry, he has also spent several years honing his skills for complex surgical and endodontic treatments. Dr. Cleveland employs his passion for dentistry by continuously taking advanced education courses related to implants, endodontics, sedation and sleep apnea. He is also a member of the Harbor Dental Society, California Dental Association and the American Dental Association.

Dr. Karimi is incredibly excited to serve the Long Beach community and explore the food scene; He considers himself a burger and sushi connoisseur. A sport enthusiast, Dr. Karimi is a die-hard Lakers fan. He also enjoys spending his free time hiking and lifting weights.

Dr. Karimi is working very hard everyday taking care of patients and managing all the business operations. As we have told you, Dr. Doug and I are helping out through next May and still enjoy being in the office. Dr. Doug is currently in Alaska helping his brother who just had shoulder surgery. He does look forward to returning to the California weather next week. As for myself, with a little added free time in my schedule I have started playing pickleball. If you are looking for a new activity in your life pickleball is very easy to learn and fun to play!
