About Your Dentist

Sara Shah, DMD, MMSc

Growing up in Dunnellon, FL, Dr. Shah knew she wanted to give back to the community that raised her. "I knew that my purpose in life was to help people." Now a board-certified periodontist and implant surgeon, she believes oral health is vital to overall well-being.

Dr. Shah attended dental school at the University of Pennsylvania through the accelerated seven-year dental education program and completed her specialty surgical training at Harvard University. During her time in Boston, Dr. Shah conducted clinical research in periodontology and dental implants at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard School of Dental Medicine. Additionally, she has received training in medical science and analytics through Harvard Medical School and Harvard Business School.

Hassan Adabi, DDS

"Dentistry is an all-encompassing career. A dentist is a radiologist, a chemist, an artist, a scientist, and most importantly, a friend."

My Mission

"To always treat the person in the chair. Everyone is different, and accordingly, everyone's dental needs are different. My goal is to attend to each and every one of these individual needs on behalf of my patients in order to provide them with the best dental care possible."
