She earned her dental degree at the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry. Dr. Amjadi completed a three-year graduate program in Fixed, Removable and Implant Prosthodontics at the University of Pittsburgh and a one-year hospital-based post-graduate fellowship in Maxillofacial Prosthetics before she returned to Honolulu in 1998 to begin private practice.

Although Dr. Amjadi has extensive training and experience treating complex bite problems and TMD symptoms she gladly provides routine preventive and restorative care for many patients with ordinary dental problems. Dr. Amjadi emphasizes a compassionate approach to comprehensive dental care for every patient.

Dr. Amjadi supplements her specialty training with regular continuing education courses on various topics that include: temporomandibular disorders (TMD), cosmetic restorations and the latest in dental implants, including the Nobel Biocare All-on-Four concept and immediate dental implants.

Growing up and living on Oahu has given Dr. Amjadi a special love for Hawaii and its people. She spends a great deal of her personal time outdoors with her family, especially her young son, Ronan. They spend time exploring the outdoors, playing at the beach and bodysurfing. Dr. Amjadi also enjoys traveling, reading, sculpting, drawing, painting, gardening and caring for her dogs Kofi and Oscar and cats Cleo and Suki.

Dr. Amjadi is an active member of St. Clements Episcopal Church, The American Dental Association, the Hawaii Dental Association and the Honolulu County Dental Society.
