Dr. Mahi Sophia Mehr, the owner of Lincoln Shine Dental in Lincoln Park/Lakeview, is both a General/Cosmetic Dentist and an Oral and Maxillofacial Radiologist. She graduated and received her Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS), with honors, from one of the finest dental schools in the Middle East in 2003. She then began a 3 year residency program to further her dental education and, in addition to completing that program, was awarded a position as assistant professor at a dental school in which she instructed students for 2 years. Seeking new challenges and fresh opportunities, Dr. Mahi next moved to the United States, where she entered the dental residency program at the University of Iowa in 2010. She completed her residency and earned a masters of Oral Science and Certificate of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology from the University of Iowa in 2013. Following her residency, Dr. Mahi earned her State of Illinois dental license after passing the American Dental Board examinations with distinction. Dr. Mahi is actively involved in the dental community and became a diplomat of the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology in 2015. She is a lifetime member of the American Orthodontics Society and an active member of the Chicago Dental Society, the Illinois State Dental Society, and the American Dental Association. Dr. Mahi has published multiple research articles and books, as well.
Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
Dr. Mahi is strongly committed to giving back to her community to ensure her patients’ dental health. Reflecting that commitment, she worked as a general dentist in a remote and under-served area in southern Illinois for approximately 2 years. As the only dentist within a large radius during this time, Dr. Mahi gained a tremendous amount of invaluable experience in all aspects of dentistry. Of equal or even greater importance, however, she had the unique privilege of assisting many patients who otherwise would have failed to receive dental care in that remote area.
Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
I enjoy treating all cases but especially enjoy helping patients achieve their dream smile whether it's through traditional braces, Invisalign, botox, and dermal fillers.
