MEET DR. TARA FIROUZI
Tara Firouzi, DDS
Dr. Firouzi earned her Bachelors of Art in Biology from New York City College and Doctorate of Dental Surgery from University of Detroit Mercy. In addition, she has had extensive training during her residency at UDM in Advanced Education in General Dentistry to expand her knowledge and experience on esthetic dentistry, esthetic anterior implants restorations with tissue shaping, implant posterior restorations, advanced prosthodontic and multidisciplinary treatments. Her experience at St John’s hospital’s dental clinic in Detroit, Michigan earned her great knowledge about dental treatment of patient with orofacial cancers and defects.
Aside from practicing dentistry in her own community, Dr. Firouzi has the passion of giving dental care to underserved people. Her journey to do just that started by treating underserved people in 2017 from working at the DMC hospital part time to attending a mission trip to Jamaica that same year. She plans to organize and participate in more such programs locally and globally to be able to continue to give back what she has earned in life.
She loves to know about different cultures, languages and people’s different perspectives in life, thus she enjoys a unique relationship with her patients.
Dr. Firouzi also has a passion for art and sports. She plays a Hand Pan and does yoga on her free time. She has been advancing in skiing and hiking the past few years and has recently taken pottery classes where she enjoys working with her hands in a different way than in dentistry.
