Vaheed Bayette, DDS


Dr. Bayette came to the United States when he was 15 years old and overcame many barriers to carve out an academic career for himself, completing dental school at the Medical College of Virginia Dental School and also a three-year residency at the Veterans Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah. Dr. Vaheed Bayette has now been practicing dentistry for over 25 years. He is a member of the California Dental Association, the American Dental Association® and the local dental chapter in San Diego. He is board certified by the American Board of General Dentistry.

Dr. Bayette demonstrates a commitment to providing the best possible care through his dedication to continuing education each year. Oral health has always been of great interest to him, and being able to work with his hands has given him a great level of satisfaction with the treatment he provides. Combining these desires together has led him to excel in the field of dentistry. He also deeply enjoys the technical aspect of dentistry and the challenge of producing a high-end product for his patients.

He is delighted for the opportunity to get to know each of his patients, and he is interested in learning their views and opinions on topics outside of dentistry. Dr. Bayette’s office has patients from so many different walks of life that it is nearly impossible not to learn something new and fascinating from them each day. He was inspired to become a dentist because of his passion for helping people, and he values the chance to build lifelong relationships with his patients.

Dr. Bayette’s commitment to fostering close partnerships with his patients is accomplished by creating a balance between communication and trust. His practice sets itself apart from others by the fact that his team genuinely cares about each and every patient. Although dental care is limited to the patient’s oral health, he considers and treats all aspects of his patients’ needs and desires during every single visit and with each procedure.

Dr. Bayette currently resides in San Diego, where he enjoys the atmosphere of the city, the weather and the people. When Dr. Bayette is not with patients, he enjoys spending time with his family, riding motorcycles, and hanging out with his two dogs, Bella and Barkley.
