Meet the Doctors

Antoine Dental Center has 5 dentists who have received advanced training and specialize in many areas of dentistry. This specialization sets us apart from other Houston dentist offices and allows us to care for your individual needs with expertise and compassion.

Behzad Nazari, DDS

Dr. Nazari is a Houston dentist with 18 years of experience serving Houston area patients. He began his career as a Registered Pharmacist (RPh) after graduating from Texas Southern University in 1991. He then decided to pursue dentistry, eventually graduating with honors and a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from the University of Texas at Houston Dental Branch in 1998. In 2000, Dr. Nazari envisioned an all-in-one dental health center that could serve patients of all ages with a variety of dental and orthodontic services. That is when he founded Antoine Dental Center, which has since served thousands of patients in the greater Houston area.

Dr. Nazari teaches that comprehensive preventative care is one of the most important keys to good oral health. He believes it is never too late for a healthy, beautiful smile. His dedication to excellent care has led him to complete more than 1,800 hours of continuing education, with more than 500 hours in orthodontics, occlusion, and TMJ correction alone. He is a proud member of the American Dental Association, the Texas Dental Association, the Greater Houston Dental Society and the Academy of General Dentistry. He holds certificates in orthodontics, implant dentistry, and cosmetic dentistry. He is a graduate of the prestigious Kois Center training facility in Seattle, WA.

When he is not in the office, Dr. Nazari can be found reading or swimming with his wife and two children, Camyar and Ava. They also enjoy watching a good movie from time to time.
