Since then, Mehrdad has been part of multiple projects, alongside visiting scholars, under the mentorship of Dr. Pascal Magne. His focus has been on restorative techniques and dental materials. He has been part of publications in the esteemed Journal of Dental Materials and International Journal of Esthetic Dentistry and now practices general and restorative dentistry here at WLA Dental Center.
