Meet the Doctor

Dr. Kaveh Zand was born and raised in California. After completing his undergraduate studies at the University of California, Davis, he moved to Maryland to attend The Johns Hopkins University where he received his graduate degree in Biotechnology. Soon after, he completed his Doctoral degree at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry with honors, and as a member of the Gorgas Odontoligcal Honorary society. After dental school, he was accepted to the competitive General Practice Residency program at the Baltimore Veterans Affairs Medical Center, where he obtained advanced training in all facets of dentistry. However, his continued interest in 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 advanced training, Dr. Zand returned to the D.C. area and began to practice as a specialist in surgical and non-surgical Micro-Endodontics, with a passion for preserving the natural dentition. He understands that root canal therapy can often be a stressful prospect for many patients, therefore he opened District Endodontics, with one very important goal in mind. To create a relaxing and non-threatening office environment with amenities and
technology designed to make every experience pleasant. He strives to provide the highest standard of care while eliminating the stigma associated with root canal therapy. Furthermore, he believes that proper communication is the cornerstone of patient care; “As my patient, I will listen to you, answer your questions, explain my treatment, and let you know exactly what to expect when you leave the office.”

Dr. Zand currently holds active memberships with The American Association of Endodontists, The American Dental Association, and the DC Dental Society. In his spare time, he enjoys traveling, trying new cuisines, playing tennis, learning golf, and spending time with his Golden Retriever Chloe’.
