The Compassionate History of Columbia Dental
Columbia Dental started 22 years ago as part of a promise Dr. Abbas Mohammadi made to himself as a nine-year-old boy. He lived in Iran with his parents and had a miserable toothache. It was a weekend and no dentists were open in his neighborhood. His mother felt so bad for him and took him from place to place knocking on doors asking someone to please come and see her son until she finally found a dentist who would see him. Dr. Mohammadi promised that if he became a dentist, he would have an office open on weekends to treat such emergencies as no one should have to remain in such pain. Dr. Mohammadi opened his office he also opened it on weekends and has kept it going 7 days a week.
When the pandemic started and the state closed down in March 2020 dentists were allowed to keep their office open for urgent and emergent care. Columbia Dental was a multi-specialty practice already, but he consolidated the specialists to the Manchester office and, as the technology was in existence, he built his digital dental lab to be able to create the dental prosthesis (crowns, bridges and dentures) in one day to minimize the need for multiple visits and enable to the patient to come in one day to get the work they needed and leave with a functional mouth.
