Meet the Team

We appreciate your visit to the Center for Aesthetic Dentistry. We offer a complete line of cosmeticneuromuscular, and general dentistry treatments for people in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area and have been doing so for over 10 years.

It is our mission to provide the most comfortable, compassionate, and thorough care possible. We take the extra time necessary to get to know our patients and develop trusting relationships with them. We know that choosing to get cosmetic dentistry work done can be a very personal decision, and we want to make sure our patients feel comfortable speaking candidly with us about what they want to improve about their smile.

You can expect to work with the same treatment coordinator throughout your entire process here at the Center for Exceptional Dentistry. This helps ensure that we provide you with the highest levels of personal attention.

We also pride ourselves on having the most up-to-date training and technology available. Dr. Firouzi is dedicated to continuing education for himself and his team. Cosmetic and neuromuscular dentistry are rapidly evolving fields. We strive to stay on the cutting edge so that we can provide the latest and greatest treatments for our patients.

We provide only the finest, most qualified, friendly, and caring hygienists, assistants, and administrative personnel. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our team members:

Cassandra Taormina

Cassandra Taormina

Cassandra was born in Baltimore Maryland and moved to Pennsylvania in 2001. I attended Bradford School where I graduated as an expanded function dental assistant in 2011. My mom was a dental assistant when I was young, so I grew up around the dental field. Therefore, I have always been interested in helping people take care of their teeth. I take working as a dental assistant seriously because I love to make sure people understand the importance of their dental health.

I reside in Hopewell with my husband and our dog Nova. In my spare time I enjoy crafting and I enjoy playing the drums and guitar.

Courtney Salvini

Courtney Salvini

Courtney was born and still lives outside of Washington, PA. She currently lives on a street named after her grandparents and the farm they have owned. After she graduated high school, she went straight to dental hygiene school at West Liberty University. Once she graduated from the hygiene program, she started her career as a dental hygienist in a private practice where she worked for six years before joining our team.

Courtney became a part of our team in November 2009, because we were very impressed with her qualifications and personality and she liked how through and comprehensive Dr. Firouzi and our practice is about patient's dental hygiene.

Her interests outside of the dental field include golf, and babysitting her niece and nephews.
