Biography

Dr. Sara Shayan graduated from dental school in Fort Lauderdale, Florida (Nova Southeastern University) in 2013. Upon graduation, she was chosen to attend a residency program in Advanced Education in General Dentistry at the University of Texas in San Antonio where she spent an enriching year expanding on her dental skills and experiences. At the completion of her formal dental training, she moved back to her native home in Ontario and looks forward to educating patients about preventative dentistry and oral health care, as well as providing excellent dental treatment.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

I am a dentist with a passion for what I do. After graduating from dental school in 2013, I decided to dedicate another year or my life to higher education. I began a one year residency in Advanced Eduaction in General Dentistry at the University of Texas in San Antonio. In addition to expanding on the skills I learned in dental school, I learned more advanced procedures and treatment planned more complex cases. My skill set includes implant placement and restoration, complex extractions, bone augmentation procedures, connective tissue grafts, sinus lifts, utilizing CADCAM technology and IV conscious sedation.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

Dr. Shayan enjoys treating both children and adults and enjoys all aspects of dentistry

The initial appointment also went faster than expected! The dental assistant was also great and always made sure to warn me, asking me if I was okay frequently throughout the visit.

    Courteous staff. I thought I would dread the experience at first because I haven't been to a dentist in over 10 years, but everyone was pleasant and professional. It's a well organized and run business, which means I never had to wait. Sara, Carrie, and everyone in between are fantastic. I have found a dentist for life.
