  • I used to visit Dr. Rostami back in Arizona few years ago. I was on my business trip in Toronto last week and all of a sudden before my meeting one of my front teeth filling came out while I was flossing, shocked and didn’t know what to do, thanks god I remembered  my Canadian dentist back in Mesa, couple of minutes search in the Internet I looked her up and she saw me the same day. I just want to say how I appreciated your help and we all in Arizona have  missed you doc.
