About Dr. Rooz Khosravi

Dr. Rooz Khosravi interest in dentistry began early in his life, as he is a second generation dentist in his family. He grew up spending lots of time in his mother’s dental practice, and learning the importance of deeply caring about patients of all ages.

The joy of impacting others’ lives by improving their oral health is one of the main reasons Dr. Rooz decided to pursue dentistry. As an orthodontist, he sees the influence of a healthy and beautiful smile on children, teenagers and adults and enjoys being a part of this process for them.

Dr. Rooz obtained his dental degree from Azad University in Tehran. Following his dental education he decided to move into the field of basic sciences, beginning with a move to Montreal to pursue his graduate training in oral health sciences.

He studied the relationship between diabetes and periodontal disease as part of his Master of Science degree at INRS-IAF. Following his graduation, Dr. Rooz again relocated, this time to Boston where he obtained his PhD in Oral Biology from Boston University. His studies in this degree program focused on bone fragility under diabetic conditions.

It was after these two degrees in the basic sciences that Dr. Rooz decided to transition back to the field of clinical dentistry, taking with him a deeper knowledge of bone biology, which made him keenly interested in the field of orthodontics. Dr. Rooz enrolled in the orthodontics program at the University of Washington, one of the top orthodontics program worldwide.

He then completed a clinical residency and studied use of the Invisalign appliance to manage overbites. After his graduation, Dr. Rooz joined the department of orthodontics as an assistant professor to continue conducting research as well as to help implement new technology in the department. Additionally, he teaches both orthodontics graduate residents and dental students.

Dr. Rooz Khosravi is a member of the American Board of Orthodontists – a commitment to excellence that only hold by 30% of orthodontists. He is also an ad-hoc reviewer for several scientific journals such as American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. He also has published in several peer-reviewed scientific journals.

Dr. Rooz and his family live in Sammamish. He met his wife Elly – a New England native – in Boston. They were both surprised that soon after relocating to the PNW it felt like home, and they’ve decided to stay here and raise their son, Milo Kalhor.
