    Dr. Sophia Saeed is a general dentist and clinical educator. She provides general dental care one day a week in the Faculty Group Practice with a an emphasis on prevention and minimally-invasive, evidence-based dentistry. Treatments include implant restorations, cleanings, fillings, crowns, bridges and gum treatments. When she is not seeing patients, she is heavily involved with teaching and curriculum design.

    Dr. Saeed earned her DMD from Harvard School of Dental Medicine, after which she completed her General Practice Residency at UCSF. She was hired as GPR Program Director in 2009 to reshape the GPR Program ahead of the 2012 accreditation Site Visit, which she successfully did. Also in 2012, she completed the Teaching Scholars Program.

    Her love of education was impetus for her to leave post-graduate education and shift gears to pre-doctoral education where she could have an impact on a greater number of learners. She has experience as course director, she serves on multiple education-related committees, and she provides faculty development through the Center for Faculty Educators. In recognition of her excellence as an educator and clinician, she has been inducted into the UCSF School of Medicine's Academy of Medical Educators and the Omicron Kappa Upsilon (OKU) National Dental Honor Society.

    Outside of UCSF, Dr. Saeed serves as an administrative board member for the American Dental Education Association (ADEA) Council of Faculties and a manuscript reviewer for the Journal of Dental Education.

    Dr. Saeed also has training in evidence-based dentistry (EBD) and Continuous Process Improvement (CPI)/Lean management.
