Upon returning to Vancouver and successfully completing the Canadian Board Examinations he began working at Image Smiles Dental and purchased the practice in 2001. Dr. Yeganegi became interested in lasers and their application in dentistry and, in 2003, he obtained his certification from the Institute for Laser Dentistry. He has successfully incorporated the use of hard and soft tissue lasers in many dental procedures giving his patients the best treatment using technology. He is also a certified Invisalign provider since 2007 having successfully completed many orthodontic cases.
In 2008, Dr. Yeganegi began his initial training in Implant Dentistry and after two years of placing and restoring implants he joined the Vancouver Oral Implantology Surgical Study Club which focuses on all aspects of implant dentistry including treatment planning, simple and complicated surgical techniques, and bone grafting.
Implant dentistry has since become a passion of his and he continues to further his education and skill set so that he can provide a safe, reliable, long lasting solution to missing teeth for his patients. In 2015, he completed the Surgical Training Program "Maxicourse" of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID) , and is a Level 1 Associate Fellow of the AAID.

Outside of dentistry, rugby has been a big part of his life; having been fortunate to play on many teams from club level to junior and senior provincial and national levels. Besides travelling and meeting many people through this great sport he has learned the value of teamwork and unity. That, along with his close family ties, has helped shape his professional life as he and his dental team aim to provide the best care and service for each of our patients.
