Dr. Hosseini is by far the best orthodontist and has the best staff around. They do everything with precision and excellence to fulfill every patients needs. They have a clean updated facility that is kid friendly as well. I would highly recommend Dr. Hosseini and his staff to anyone who is looking for a new orthodontist.
Dr. Hosseini and his staff are the best. They are very patient and accommodating. I am a bit older getting braces for the first time. There is no "standard". treatment with Dr. Hosseini. Everyone's treatment is tailored for them. The staff is very pleasant and a joy to be around. I could not have a chosen a better place to have my braces done. And to top it off, their prices are great. Thanks for the exception job you are doing San Leandro Braces!!!!
Dr. Hosseini was extremely kind during our first visit. He was truly professional and answered all questions and concerns with no hesitation (we could tell that he has many years of experience). His confidence and dedication to his work made us feel confident that he would correct our daughter's bite. Our daughter was so comfortable with him that she was excited to start treatment. Dr. Hosseini left a lasting impression on us that we trusted him with our daughter's smile and immediately knew that he would do an amazing job!
My wife and I are so pleased with the service Dr. Hosseini and his staff provided for our daughter this far. We are fortunate to have discovered San Leandro Braces, as we have received thorough information regarding her treatment during each visit. I appreciate the fact that Dr. Hosseini makes himself available for questions and even personally called us because we didn't show up for our appointment! Oops! We forgot about the appointment, but Dr. Hosseini wanted to make sure our daughter receives adequate care, so he allowed us to come in late on the same day without penalty (no extra charge or fees). I promise you that you won't find this kind of personal service anywhere! My wife has had braces put on three times at different places. She was charged extra fees here and there (broken bracket, late more than 15 minutes, treatment went over estimated timeframe, etc). You won't have to worry about extra hidden fees with Dr. Hosseini. He's a very honest dentist.
The price is great and the service is superior! The is a lot of safe, and free parking spaces in the back. The office is clean, renovated, and spacious.
We highly recommend San Leandro Braces.
My daughter has had 2 sets of braces and was treated by different orthodontists. She continued to have problems with molars that were stuck sideways and not erupting from the gums. I obtained opinions from 2 other orthodontists, 2 oral surgeons and a dentist. All of them told me that we needed to have said molars removed and get implants. Dr Hosseini who recently purchased the practice wanted to save her teeth. He was able to upright her teeth with an appliance and biweekly adjustments. Her molars erupted and came out pretty straight within 5 months. No further treatment needed.
I almost made the mistake of getting my procedure done at Western Dental. I'm glad I took my time and did my research. I had two different consultations-and I was told I needed to have surgery to fix my teeth! So far they are turning out great without surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Hosseini he is always patient and knows exactly what he is doing. Jasmine always schedules my appointments when they are convenient for me and there is no wait, his office is newly remolded with video games for my kids, so they love coming with me.
Well I got my braces off today and I couldn't be happier! Dr. Hosseini is awesome! This whole process has been nothing short of amazing! He kept me up to date at each visit and thoroughly explained each step along the way. I finally have the smile I have always wanted and my only wish is that I would have found him sooner. I can now smile without putting my hands in front of my mouth for fear of someone looking at my teeth. Dr. Hosseini you gave me back my smile and my confidence!
I took my daughter in last year for a consult. I got what I would describe as an overused copy of a quote for $4k-$5k. I know each company covers different stuff for their insurance so that was red flag number one. But I had already decided I would get a pre auth before the work would be done this year. This year I also provided them my ex husbands insurance which is an HMO and mine is a PPO. I asked for a revised amount and for it to get pre authorized. They came back with another vague quote saying it would be $2450. I asked how much each insurance is covering. They said that was HMO only. I asked about PPO and was told that HMO was primary and PPO isn't but then after I said that's not how it should work based on birthdates if insured they came back a week later showing a bit over $2k and this time it was a true pre authorization showing work to be performed. I then asked about the HMO since this covers PPO only and was told they wouldn't cover anything since the PPO covers more than what the HMO would. Then I was told this didn't include special appliances and it would be another $1k. A few hours later I get a call from my ex husband saying we should take our daughter somewhere else because he felt they were trying to scam us. He sent me a copy of the pre authorization the insurance sent him and it clearly said our portion due was $1050.
Dr. Hosseini is an excellent orthodontist. My daughter completed her phase I orthodontic treatment with a different provider and it was disastrous. We came to San Leandro Braces for a consultation for Phase II treatment around August 2016 when my daughter was 11 years old. Dr. Hosseini is such a blessing to us because he developed a treatment plan that was perfectly suited for my daughter whose challenge is likely a class III malocclusion.
During the first telephone contact, we received a reminder call and clear instructions on what to expect, and what to bring. We asked about the waiting time and how long we should expect to be there. They assured us that they usually run on schedule.
Upon arrival to the first appointment, my daughter and I were greeted with a friendly smile by the receptionist. She checked my daughter in and provided me with the appropriate documents to sign. We were called to the back almost immediately after I finished filling out the forms.
We were brought to the exam room. Dr. Hosseini introduced himself, talked about his education and experience in the orthodontic field, examined my daughter's teeth, bite, and alignment. He was friendly and had good manners. My daughter reported feeling extremely comfortable with him. He was informative and thorough. After a clear explanation of his clinical opinion, he recommended that she receive treatment as soon as possible.
We went home to think about it, and initially, we were going to get another consultation from an orthodontist about two minutes away from our home. We scheduled the appointment, but eventually canceled it because my daughter felt that she wanted services from San Leandro Braces, Dr. Hosseini.
We made an appointment to get her braces put on. The appointment was set for two days later. Seriously, setting appointments was and still is so easy!
When we arrived, my daughter was seated immediately. Dr. Hosseini came and greeted us personally. He shook our hands and asked about our day. He's very personable! Every step of putting on the braces, Dr. Hosseini was sure to inform my daughter of what he was doing. She wasn't nervous at all.
We have been seeing him monthly. He's trying many different techniques to help prevent her from becoming a class III. He's also trying to avoid jaw surgery. This is a doctor who sincerely cares for his patients wellbeing. He is absolutely not about money. He's in this business to help people improve their smile and confidence.
I highly recommend him without reservations! Please contact me should you have any questions.

Early intervention can make orthodontic treatment easier and the end result more ideal. It is important that an orthodontist evaluate a growing child to determine their orthodontic needs and the best timing of treatment.
Orthodontics for Adults
Adult treatment is recommended for improving esthetics of your smile and the function of the bite. The goal is to create and maintain a healthy dentition throughout your life.
for patients who wish to avoid wearing traditional fixed braces may be candidates for invisalign treatment. This type of treatment is indicated for more minor teeth movements.
Fixed Appliance Therapy
We provide our patients with various types of appliances which are most appropriate for their treatment. These appliances include, but are not limited to, functional appliances, retainers, face masks, head gear, and temporary anchorage devices. Our goal is to provide our patients with appliances that would be the most beneficial additions to their treatment. With the addition of these appliances to their treatment, it can be an even more effective and efficient process.
