Sophia Saeed, DMD


Dr. Sophia Saeed is a general dentist and hospital dentist. She provides routine dental care — including implant restorations, cleanings, fillings, crowns, bridges and gum treatments — in the outpatient clinic to patients who are healthy enough for elective dental treatment. One day per week, she also treats adults with developmental disabilities in an operating room setting.

Saeed received her dental degree from Harvard School of Dental Medicine. After completing her training, she elected to complete an optional residency year. She joined the UCSF faculty in 2008 and became director of the General Practice Residency program and Hospital Dentistry Practice in 2009. In addition to patient care, she is actively involved with the education of students and residents.
