Dr. Sara Shirazi

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!
