Meet San Jose Endodontist Dr. Kazim Mirza

Dr. Kazim Mirza

Kazim was born and raised in London, England. He earned a scholarship to the prestigious King Edward’s School before embarking on dental school at the University of Manchester where he graduated in 2006. He spent a year in a Vocational Training post and then worked as a general dentist in private practice for over a decade before starting his training in Endodontics. Kazim gained a postgraduate certificate in Endodontics from the University of Chester in 2016. During his time in England, Kazim was involved in organized dentistry for the British Dental Association and was an elected member of the English Council committee. He was recognized by Dentistry Magazine in the Young Dentist of the Year award ceremony in 2017. 

 

Kazim moved to the United States in 2018 where his wife is from, and enrolled in the international dentist program at UCLA and gained his DDS in 2020. He was a student representative for the California Dental Association. During this time, he was also involved in research which he presented at the 97th IADR General Session in Vancouver on “Comparison of Disinfection of Different Irrigants using SWEEPS Laser Activation” in 2019. He gained clinical honors in Endodontics and was chosen to be a tutor for preclinical endodontics. During this time, he published two peer reviewed articles for Decisions in Dentistry on irrigation and pediatric endodontics. 

Following a year in practice, Kazim pursued residency and was accepted into the program at the University of the Pacific in San Francisco from where he graduated this year where he earned a Certificate in Endodontics and a Master of Science in Dentistry with his thesis focusing on vital pulp therapy. He presented this research in an oral presentation at the American Association of Endodontics conference in Chicago.
