About

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.

    Dr. Mahi was absolutely amazing. She has a very calming presence and made the whole experience a breeze. I went there having anxiety about dentists but she made me feel so calm. The clinic is very nice and clean as well. All the staff are super friendly.

    Really wonderful office staff, Dr. Mahi was very friendly and even though I'm normally nervous at dentist's offices, she let me pause and was aware if I was hurting.

    Dr. Mehr and her crew are great: she reviewed my x-rays and realized that my situation was more serious than we thought (I'd originally scheduled for a cleaning and eval with x-rays, but she realized my wisdom teeth had damage/cavities and needed a closer look) and was able to compartmentalize my expenses for a second x-ray. They helped get me resources for funding/insurance and I'll be looking into getting my teeth fixed with them. Clean office and kind staff were a bonus for me.

    Was admitted very quickly (barely any wait time). Everyone was very courteous and the small details make such a difference in the experience- the goggles, the TV while you’re in the chair. X-rays we’re quick and efficient. Really just everything from beginning to end was smooth, efficient, and easy!!

    Dr. Mahi and staff were so kind and welcoming. It was an added plus to have Hazel the pup in the office! Getting in pets before my appointment was a great stress reliever. I really appreciated how thoughtful they were about finances and making clear what my insurance did and did not cover. Overall, a wonderful experience!

    Dr. Mahi is so caring and professional, relatable and easy to talk to. Also her space is beautiful! The rest of the staff I interacted with, Rose and Judy were also so helpful and nice. It felt very sanitary and safe given COVID-19; they have advanced equipment which can speed up your time in the chair and shorten how much time you need to be there. This was my first appointment and I would absolutely go back.

    The assistant took x-rays while seated and then X-rays in this standing machine that spun around my head, very modern! The cleaning appointment was quick yet detailed. The dr went over every tooth with me on this little camera in my mouth and cleaned any of the build up. The assistant came back and finished the cleaning with a polish, some flossing, and fluoride (recommended by dentist, I took them up on the recommendation.

    Unbelievably friendly. Great at her job and is very knowledgable. The office is very beautiful and always have great music. Was a little more on the expensive side from my insurance standpoint, but I would much rather pay for good service. I'll be going back consistently. Highly recommend Dr. Mehr and her team.

    The doctor is very nice, but she isn’t very assertive which made me a bit worried. I came in for a simple cavity filling and after the evaluation she was asking me if I wanted them filled that day or six months from now. When I asked for her professional suggestion she didn’t have a firm recommendation which slightly bothered me. The actual procedure was painless and fast. The only other negative I have about the office is the administrative staff - they are friendly but rely too much on the doctor to do their job. For example, in my 30 minute screening, we were interrupted 4 separate times by nurses asking how to fill out forms - it felt pretty unprofessional.

    Dr. Mehr was by far the best dentist I've been to. I'm 55 years old so this is a compliment. She was very pleasant, went over everything in detail, was very gentle and it showed that she genuinely cared. I don't like to go to Dentists and it had been 5 years since I had been to one. I'm glad I chose Dr. Mehr. I will not hesitate to go twice a year from this point on.

    Dr. Mehr was great. Very helpful and kind. She also made sure that I learned some valuable tips for dental care for a young professional - for example how to make sure my teeth don't get stained by the amount of coffee I drink! HUGE plus was also the dog in the clinic - so cute and so fun to be around, made the visit that much more relaxed!

    I arrived 30m early, I was checked in ASAP and my appt began on time. Nice office and equipment, friendly service that was thorough. Dr Mahi has great bedside manner and attn to detail. They even checked my coverage before xrays to make sure I was covered for that type. Seemed a little out of organization but it was eob and the office dog was, quirky. Overall good visit and close to home, I’ll be back.
