Dr. Shaheera says that what modern-day dentistry can accomplish is truly amazing. Just by adjusting one tooth or fixing a small problem, she can completely change someone’s smile for the better, and this can give them an unprecedented level of daily comfort and self-confidence. She looks forward to welcoming you into our dental office, and below, you can start getting to know her.
Dr. Shaheera was very self-conscious about her smile growing up because of crooked teeth, but she says that orthodontics was able to change her life. This is what first piqued her interest in dentistry, and what made her decide to pursue it was when she realized that it is a combination of art and science, two fields that she loves. Today, she really likes that she gets to be creative in a healthcare setting while working closely with each patient.
Dr. Shaheera is originally from Windsor, Ontario, Canada, so her college career started at the University of Windsor. She went on to earn her dental degree from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry. Before joining our dental office, she worked in dental offices that primarily served patients with limited access to dental care, so she has a lot of experience handling emergencies.
To make sure she is always up-to-date when it comes to dental technology and techniques, she is an active member of the American Dental Association and Ohio Dental Association.
