Years in Dental Industry
Dr. Kandar enjoys the problem-solving aspect of dentistry and takes great pride in helping his patients achieve and maintain their optimal oral health. His treatment philosophy is patient-focused, with a strong emphasis on education and preventative care. Dr. Kandar was first introduced to dentistry through his uncle’s dental office, which he frequently visited as a child with his twin brother Mak. After earning his B.D.S in 2011 at the International University of Science and Technology Faculty of Dentistry in Damascus, Syria, he opened his own practice, where he treated patients for six years before moving to Oklahoma City, OK, to pursue his D.D.S. at the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry. He moved to San Francisco in June of 2020 to be closer to his brother, who is currently finishing an advanced degree in dentistry at UCSF. In August of 2020, Dr. Kandar and Dr. Mak opened UNO DENTAL SAN FRANCISCO, which represents the cumulation of their hard work, experience, and the realization of their long-shared dream of working together in their own practice. Dr. Kandar shares a firm belief with his brother giving back to the San Francisco community and investing in their chosen place they call home. Dr. Kandar, in his free time, enjoys being a hardcore soccer fan, watching and playing his favorite sport; additionally, he loves spending time with family and friends, exploring new parts of the world, and the food scene around.
