Why Did Dr. Shahdad Become a Dentist?

Dr. Shahdad got a Barbie doll toy dental kit as a gift from her parents when she was 5 years old and loved it. Months later, she accompanied her grandmother to a dental clinic and witnessed the fearful experience she had in getting real dental care. Growing up, she was very close to her grandmother. Dr. Shahdad promised herself that she would learn about the dental field and she would find a way to make it a pleasant experience and without fear. This experience drew her towards taking care of people and helping people avoid dental pain and anxiety.
