Meet The Doctor

Sarah Nabai, DDS

Dr. Nabai has been practicing dentistry for the past 22 years. She earned her undergraduate degree from University of Michigan with Distinction in Biology. She also completed her dental school training at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Dr. Nabai furthered her education by doing a General Practice Residency (GPR) at the Veteran’s Hospital in Palo Alto, California. Dr. Nabai also obtained her fellowship (FAGD) from the Academy of General Dentistry.

After working as an Associate Doctor, Dr. Nabai started her own practice in Palo Alto; she provided care to her patients for 11 years. Dr. Nabai and her family chose to relocate to Southern California to be closer to extended family and friends.

She is passionate about cosmetic and implant dentistry. She believes that patients should have natural looking smiles. She works closely with local boutique dental laboratories to provide patients with beautiful smiles. The patient, the dental lab and the doctor equally play an important role in creating the perfect smile.

Dr. Nabai grew up playing tennis.  After moving to California, beach tennis and pickle ball, along with golf were added to her list of hobbies.
