Dr. Shahabi

Sheila Shahabi, DDS

Dr. Sheila Shahabi was drawn to dentistry out of her desire to help others—to relieve pain, to help people keep their teeth and their smiles. She views dentistry as an art that she gets to practice daily, and has established her own uplifting philosophy of dedication to high quality patient care, soothing and relaxation, and restoring patients’ well-being in pleasant, environmentally friendly surroundings.

A committed individual with high aspirations and a willingness to work hard seven days a week, Dr. Shahabi entered private practice in 1999, her first year after graduating from the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco, having earned her undergraduate degree at the University of California, Berkeley. She is fluent in Farsi and Spanish. Young as she was, Dr. Shahabi earned promotions to management positions at every job she had. But she knew she wanted to practice dentistry instead of traveling and opening and managing dental offices.

Dr. Shahabi’s diverse experience gave rise to her development of a new concept of dental care, based on environmental responsibility and proactive patient relationships. She founded Serenity Dental Spa in 2006 with a vision of providing the highest quality, most up-to-date general dental services in a welcoming, spa-like setting that would soothe and relax dental patients. There, she loves to deliver first-class, full services to everyone, and provide the level of care and quality of equipment and technology usually expected by the most affluent patients.

In keeping with her holistic philosophy, Dr. Shahabi wanted to create a healing space free of toxic materials. Her office, furnished and finished with sustainable materials, is located in a LEED Gold-certified office building in San Francisco’s financial district. Patients love her cool, green office with its touch of class as much as they appreciate her friendly, professional staff.

"It’s so important to be able to smile freely again. How exciting and rewarding for me to help people change their lives every day!"

Personal Interests

In keeping with her lifelong drive to help improve the lives of others, Dr. Shahabi dedicates her free time to working with individuals in need, both at home and abroad. When she’s not providing hands-on care in San Francisco, she travels to work with patients in London and New York. She is also an active philanthropist, supporting a number of community and national charities, including the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, the Edgewood Center for Children and Families, the Breast Cancer Emergency Fund, and the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

Office Mascot

Meet Bentley, the newest member of Dr. Shahabi’s team!

Bentley is a friendly, chihuahua-dachshund mix. He’s therefore little, and full of love. He was born in July 2016, and Dr. Shahabi rescued him from the SPCA only a few months later.

As the office mascot, he steers clear of the action, cheering patients on from the sidelines and adding to the family-friendly feeling of Dr. Shahabi’s office.
