Diplomate, American Board of Endodontics

Meet Dr. Zand

Originally from California, Dr. Kaveh Zand completed his undergraduate studies at the University of California, Davis and later moved to Maryland to attend The Johns Hopkins University where he obtained his Masters degree in Biotechnology. Dr. Zand then completed his dental training at the University of Maryland followed by a General Practice Residency program at the Baltimore VA Medical Center. His continued interest in the complexities of root canal therapy led him to further pursue his training as a specialist in the field of Endodontics at Nova Southeastern University in Florida.

After completion of his training, Dr. Zand returned to the D.C. area to practice with a passion for preserving the natural dentition. He understands that root canal therapy can often be a stressful prospect for many patients, so when he opened his private practice, District Endodontics, he did so with one very important goal in mind; To create a relaxing and non-threatening environment with amenities and technology designed to make every patient experience pleasant. He strives to provide the highest standard of care while eliminating the negative stigma associated with root canals. As of 2020, Dr. Zand has achieved Diplomate status with the American Board of Endodontics, and holds active memberships with the American Dental Association, and the DC Dental Society.

In his spare time he enjoys traveling, trying new cuisines, playing tennis, and spending time with his family and friends.
