Meet Dr. Raihan ``Ray`` Nazir

You don’t have to be rich or famous to have an internationally trained dentist.

Dr. Raihan Nazir, or as he is affectionately known by his patients “Dr Ray”, is passionate about excellent dental care.That means offering personalized,caring service in a warm, friendly, fun atmosphere. It means the best quality care and latest advances, backed by years of training in general dentistry and oral surgery. You can be assured of getting “star treatment” at Smile Magic, and at a price you can afford.

“Skills can be acquired. Gentleness, compassion and empathy have to come naturally—either you are born with them or not. New patients quickly appreciate that Dr. Nazir has those innate qualities.”

One of California’s best-trained dentists

Dr. Nazir’s family includes 6 dentists who served as inspiration to continue the family tradition. After graduating dental school in 1988, Dr. Nazir completed the 3-year masters program at the famed Eastman Dental Institute in London. He then devoted another 2 1/2 years of training to be licensed to practice in the United States. Today, he maintains his knowledge by training in the latest advances as they happen (above and beyond what is required by the state board). He is a member of the AACD, OCDS, CDA and ADA. From 1998 until establishing Smile Magic, Dr. Nazir provided dental service as an associate. His years of experience and exposure to varied dentistry methods have culminated in a fine-tuned, patient-centric practice. It is a practice quite unique in the U.S.—one with Eastern sensibility joined with Western technology and facilities. In fact, Dr. Nazir has been called the Deepak Chopra of dentistry.

Meet Dr. Joseph ``Joe`` DiCaprio

Originally , I was born and raised in Upstate New York (Rome). I attended University of Buffalo in New York my Freshman year in college. Re-located to California summer of 1977. I worked and attended Cal Sate Fullerton. I received a bachelor’s degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. Next, I went to UCLA Dental School from 1981-1985. I then re-located to Orange County and worked one year as an associate in private practice. After promising myself to start my own practice after one year from graduation, I began my own private practice in Santa Ana. I worked in that practice for the next twenty years. I decided to move closer to home, so in 2005 I re-located my practice to Newport Beach. My next adventure is to join practice with Dr Nazir. I am excited and looking forward to this new adventure. This move will enhance my current practice by expanding hours and offering a much broader spectrum of services.

However, the accomplishments I am most proud of are my five children. Family is the most important part of my life. They give all my other accomplishments much more meaning. I promise to treat every patient as though I am treating myself and my own Family. Whenever I am treatment planning a patient that does not have clear cut treatment options, the question I always ask myself is : What would I do if it were me in the chair? At that point, the suggested line of treatment usually becomes much clearer. I look forward to seeing everyone in our new office.
