As a collegiate, he was a member of UCLA’s varsity table tennis team for two years and placed second at the NCTTA in 2004. Dr. Karimipour was nominated for a Biochemistry Scholarship in 2004, and published an article on evidence-based dentistry that eventually sparked his interest in the dental health field.
Dr. Mehdi attended Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in 2005, on a Merit scholarship, and achieved awards for Excellence in Clinical Achievement and Operative Dentistry Clinical Skills.
After receiving his DMD, Dr. Mehdi attended a three-year dental residency program specializing in Prosthodontics at the University of Alabama and the VA Hospital at Birmingham, Alabama.

He is also well-versed in the methods used to maintain the oral health of patients with cancer who are exposed to cancercidal doses of radiation or cytotoxic drugs.
