March 10, 2015 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
March 10, 2015 - Glen Allen, VA Dr. Farshid Soltanian is pleased to share, with his local community, his volunteer work at Virginia Commonwealth University where he teaches general practice dentistry.

"I continue my education as often as I can and I love encouraging the future dentists at VCU to do the same," says Dr. Soltanian. "I attend classes regularly and have earned a number of certificates all for the purpose of having the most knowledge to benefit my patients and students."

Dr. Soltanian's volunteer work also involves travelling to the local free clinic, and performing dentistry for people in need. He performs dental cleanings and exams, as well as raises awareness about the importance of oral health.

"I think it is important to spend time with my local community who have trouble affording regular dental care," says Dr. Soltanian. "Everyone deserves a healthy smile, not just those who can afford it. I want to provide dental care for those who may not have access to it and give them the care they need."

When he is not volunteering, Dr. Soltanian is practicing cosmetic and restorative dentistry in one of his three office locations. Dr. Soltanian is proud to offer his Glen Allen, Richmond, and North Chesterfield patients procedures such as dental implants, clear aligner therapy, CEREC technology, and more.
