Meet Our Doctors
Dr. Sara Shirazi
Dr. Sara Shirazi was born in Iran and raised in Iran’s capital, Tehran. Having parents that were both dentists, Dr. Shirazi spent most of her childhood in the dental office and truly loved the experience. From this, she grew her own passion for the field and decided to explore it as a career path. Dr. Shirazi completed her education at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio and Azad Tehran University School of Dentistry. After obtaining her Doctorate of Dental Surgery, she continued her education by participating in implant dentistry courses, as well as esthetic dentistry and endodontics education.
Dr. Shirazi joined our practice in October 2021 where she has served our patients as a caring, compassionate associate dentist. Her favorite part of the job is the satisfaction of changing the lives of patients and giving them the smiles they deserve. With a true passion and fascination for the art and science of dentistry, Dr. Shirazi is committed to providing her patients with the best care possible.
In her spare time, Dr. Shirazi enjoys spending time with her fiancé – you will most likely find them outdoors, interacting with nature, and enjoying the beauty of the landscape. From camping to road trips, and even painting the view in watercolor, Dr. Shirazi loves to be outside. She also loves to play with her two cats; make sure to ask her about them during your next visit!

She was born and raised in the South Bay where she attended Palos Verdes Peninsula High School. She graduated from UC San Diego where she majored in cognitive neuroscience and minored in music, playing the violin in the La Jolla Symphony Orchestra for 2 years.
Dr. Ahn studied dentistry at the Ostrow School of Dentistry at the University of Southern California where she studied directly under world-renowned dental researcher and father of biomimetic dentistry, Dr. Pascal Magne.
On the weekends, she regularly attends continuing education conferences where she learns about the latest advancements and technologies in dentistry. She is an active member of the CDA and is working towards her fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry. She is also a Pankey-trained dentist.
Dr. Ahn makes patient comfort a top priority and does her absolute best to make each visit as comfortable and as relaxing as possible. She prides herself in spending the time to give each patient the highest quality care possible.
