Dr. Maryam Abtahi

To call Dr. Abtahi a “life time learner” is an understatement.

Beyond dentistry, Dr. Abtahi has three master’s degrees in business from Silicon Valley, and Dubai.

Dr. Abtahi is a frequent volunteer, where her passion for education and oral health – especially for those with disability – lead her to volunteer with State Welfare Organization and improve oral hygiene of rural disabled children. Dr. Abtahi was a member of Red Crescent Society where she participated in many projects focusing on improving oral health in rural areas of Iran.

Dr. Abtahi loves all aspects of dentistry, but the most rewarding part of her practice is interacting with people and caring for their oral health. She says “Nothing is more rewarding than a patient leaving my chair with a sense of satisfaction. That just makes my day.”

Having lived in Iran, Dubai, China, San Francisco, New York, Toronto and Edmonton, Dr. Abtahi has first hand experience of vastly diverse cultural, spiritual, and economic backgrounds. Such experiences have helped her feel greater empathy for her patients, providing care with a sensitive touch, respecting their trust, and caring for the unique needs of each individual patient.

Dr. Abtahi is fluent in English, Farsi, and can get by with Spanish.

During her spare time, Dr. Abtahi loves to read poetry, go for a walk and spend time with her family.
