Dr. Sheila Shahabi





Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Gerry M. from Fremont, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Shahabi has been our family dentist for more than 15 years.  She takes tremendous care to ensure the work she does is perfect and at the same time explain everything in detailed terms that I can understand.  Last year she and I decided to fix my chipped/cracked teeth with veneers.    I guess I had grown used to living with my “English” teeth but now I see what’s possible I cannot believe I waited so long to fix my smile.  Now, in the age of Zoom, I actually get to see my smile on frequent video calls and I’m delighted with my natural and healthy looking teeth.  Why did I wait so long?  Thank you Dr. Shahabi, I love my new smile!

I have been a patient of Dr. Shahabi for more years than I can remember, 10+. I have problematic teeth including defective enamel. Dr. Shahabi has always come to the rescue, fillings, crowns and a couple of root canals at the start due to the poor condition of my teeth. All procedures were performed to perfection. I should add that Dr. Shahabi has an exceptional bedside manner and I always feel comfortable and relaxed, including a recent visit in this new era of COVID.

Went into Sheila’s office for an evaluation on orthodontics. She was incredibly sweet, incredibly knowledgeable, and offered a very fair price for her service. Although I ended up going in a different direction, it was a very tough choice to make. Bonus! She has a very cute and friendly dog

Serenity Dental Spa is the best dental office I have been to. I LOVE this office and the staff. I have never had an accounting problem with them so I don’t understand the issues everyone else is having. Dr.Shahabi recommended Invislign to me and 2 months in have ready seen a huge difference. I wasn’t so sure about it at first but she was completely right. I have been back since shelter in places and I cannot believe all Dr.Shahabi has done to protect all her patients and staff. She has gone above and beyond the standard of care and I recommend this office to everyone. 10 out of 10.

I saw Dr. Shahabi regularly from 2007-2010. She did comprehensive work for my teeth grinding problem, as well as minor cosmetic, and restorative work (filling). I was always impressed by her professionalism and state of the art equipment/office. Fast forward a few years: while sitting in the chair of another well-known, respected SF DDS, he commented that my existing dental work was “excellent work”. He asked who did it. Answer: Dr. Shahabi.

I did not end up having a dental cleaning here (learned that CA requires new patients to undergo x-rays and full exam…my regular dentist was booked for some time, necessitating my visiting a new dental practice for one-off cleaning). However, am rating these guys 5 stars because they still went really above and beyond. It turns out they knew my regular dentist, and knew that she had another branch of her practice able to utilize my existing exams. Turns out they had availability! These guys really went above and beyond to help me out even though I did not proceed with my appointment…I expect they do the same for their patients!

Update: I had my teeth cleaned today and I was very impressed by all the COVID-19 safety measures in place. Upon my arrival, I was greeted by a staff member fully covered in PPE. She pumped hand sanitizer on my hands, gave me gloves to wear, measured my temperature and asked me a series of questions related to COVID-19 screening. The reception area was shielded and the entire staff was wearing PPE. The treatment room had an air filter with a germ killing UV lighting running. They stagger patients, so I was the only patient in the office. My tooth cleaning was done manually, without creating aerosols. The dentist, Dr. Chu was wearing double masks, an N95 and a secondary surgical mask plus goggles. I felt super protected and confident that it was much safer than going to the grocery store. I am super happy that my teeth are clean and bright again! Thank you Serenity Dental Spa for keeping us safe! *** I’ve been a patient at Serenity Dental Spa for 12+ years. Dr. Shahabi is very knowledgeable and caring, her staff is professional and pleasant. The equipment and technology they use is state-of-the-art. I always feel well taken care of when I visit them. I highly recommend their services

I chose Serenity Dental Spa since it is close to my job in the financial district. I love the new bigger office! It is so modern and inviting. Got my filing done last week and here is my experience: – got friendly reminder of my appointment and warm greeting from reception desk – got explanation of procedure & any costs involved – showed my room right after I sign-in – offered water, massage chair, magazine & option to watch a movie (nothing like this was offered at my other dentists, instead of was in gloomy room full of people in-line) – scared of needles, but Dr. Shahabi walked me through it, so my filing was painless – everyone was friendly & attentive I was impressed that event my 2-yr liked it, since they customize his check-up so it was fun and fast and he allowed to touch some things and play a Dr. My invisalign was worth it, my Dr. was right. We are definitely coming back!

I’ve gone here for five years after a friend recommended her. Dr Shahabi is awesome. Great office. Very nice staff. Flexible with appointments. She did my Invisalign, a filling, and general cleanings. Location is close to muni and Bart. Very reasonably priced as well.

Dr Shahabi is very thorough, explains the procedures involved,and wants the very best for her patients. She gives 110%. I first came to her office about 4 years ago with major issues with my teeth that were affecting my health, she has not only taken care of all my dental issues, I now have a lovely smile because of excellent work and recovered energy and health.

Patrick M. (Source: Zocdoc)


In so far my experience at Serenity Dental Spa has been pleasant. I came initially for an relatively serious issue with one of my molars that Dr. Shahabi was able to rescue on site, and I’ve been able to keep up with my dental health by following her directions. My subsequent cleaning appointments have gone well as well. Overall a good dental clinic that I was able to find on a pinch and it’s easy enough to get to from my house.

I went for deep cleaning and crown. I am very impressed with all there newest technology and tools. My crown was made on the spot in 30 min and fits just perfect ( no difference to the original). I didn’t felt any pain or discomfort, not even when Dr. Shahabi injected the numbing medicine. She used some kind of easy but effective trick. I am very impressed with there professionalism and how there deal with the covid 19 cleaning and safety procedures. I found my Dentist in SF finally

I’m a new patient due to a move from out of state. Check in was easy, I was greeted with a smile and hot tea. The place is sparkling clean. The room has a massage chair and TV. Easy to feel comfortable. The staff is very kind and efficient. The technology is advanced. I learned I can purchase new retainers through the office – not common at many dental offices. I was able to have my next treatment scheduled within 2 weeks of my first appointment. So glad I found a great dental office.

I am always so well taken care of by Dr. Shahabi and her staff. The genuinely care about my health and are so personable that it makes for a less stressful trip to the dentist. I haven’t worked in the City for year, but I travel from the East Bay because I like the relationship I’ve developed.

Best Dentist experience I have ever had! I love that she personally sat with me and explained my dental plan and gave me options on how to use my insurance plan. It was a great experience and I started recommended her right away ! 10 stars all across!

Love Dr Shahabi! Very congenial atmosphere, they all the latest techniques and dental technology and, of course, the fabulous office mascot, Bentley! If you are lucky, Bentlwy their cute little dog may just sit in your lap while you get a filling!

Tara J. (Source: Zocdoc)


I was firstgreeted and attended to by a wonderful receptionist, who updated me regularly on our wait. I then saw two of Sheila’s assistants, for check-up and basic clean, then Sheila herself. All were efficient, professional and friendly. Sheila highlighted longstanding dental issues for me that other dentists had missed. Am very impressed and grateful for her. I was happy to also meet her lovely dog, Bentley!!

Dr. Shahabi has been my Dentist for 7+ years! She’s taken excellent care of me – from quarterly cleanings, to Invisalign support. I’ve had immense jaw pain from stress and her knowledge about adjustments to my teeth have been life saving! So many folks don’t realize how important our teeth are to our overall health. Dr. Shahabi has an amazing, caring, helpful team too! Her office is clean, modern, and calm. Definitely not the family 1980’s dental offices I’ve visited in my past. She’s created a space that really does feel like a spa!

Dr. Shahabi has been my dentist for 10 years. Over the years I have seen her for a jaw pain and teeth grinding. She has always told me that Invisalign would resolve my issues. My teeth weren’t particularly crooked and Invisalign is not cheap, so I put it off for a long time. A year and a half ago I finally took the leap after a close friend of mine raved about her Invisalign experience and outcome. (I was able to finance the whole thing interest free through care credit!) Dr. Shahabi was 100% correct. Not only is my jaw pain is gone, but a lot of my neck pain as well. I still grind my teeth in my sleep but the Invisalign protects everything and I no longer have chipped or crumbling teeth. It actually feels good to have them in and I did not experience any speaking issues at all. I wish I had taken her advice sooner. It would have saved me a lot of pain and expense (repairing chipped teeth). And even though my teeth were not crooked, they were very tight together. Now that my teeth are property aligned, my smile is bigger and my speech has improved. Getting Invisalign from Dr. Shahabi has been an overwhelmingly positive experience for me and I recommend it to anyone.

Jayette W. from Tracy, CA (Source: Yelp)


Serenity Dental Spa located in the business district in San Francisco.  The dental office staff greeted me and handled my dental needs in a professional manner.  Dr. Shahabi’s dental assistant Zandra was so helpful in explaining what my options were as far as teeth correction. Invisalign will now be an option for me to consider!  Dr. Shahabi’s chairside manner is so caring, everything was explained to me in detail.  Dr. Shahabi’s dental office is “Green” something that I had never seen in a dental office!  Outstanding visit!

Ryan S. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


It’s hard to say goodbye to one amazing dentist. Dr. Shahabi took care of me for the last 10 years. She has done nothing but amazing work and we have come a long way. She is very thorough with all her procedures. She has a kind and caring soul. She has full dedication towards her practice and puts her patients first. She only hires the best providers to take care of her patients. Few years ago, I had issues with my tooth and she called me on a holiday weekend to check up on me. Thank you Dr. Shahabi for all your hard work and for taking care of me

Today i got my first experience of a Dental Spa. I came for a deep cleaning. The stuff is following strickt the Covid 19 protocol when you enter, which gave me a safe feeling. I had the pleasure of getting massaged ( chair) while watching TV. The doctor gave me a topical numbing which was much better than having a injection and it did the same job. The time was passing to fast actually- i would have loved to stay a little bit longer to finish the movie;-). Normally i running out of the Dental offfice. I found my permanent Dental here in SF. Best experience ever Thank you so much for overcoming my fear and the excellent service

Although I have lived in San Francisco for many years, as a former New Yorker, I had continued to get all checkups, cleanings, and treatments in New York since I travel to NY often on business. Yesterday, I decided it was time to find a dentist in San Francisco so I called Dr. Sheila Shahabi’s office. I was so amazed that she offered to see me instead of taking her well-deserved lunch break to fit me in before I was to leave on a business trip! I was already 2 months late for a check-up and cleaning! Dr. Shahabi is not only very knowledgeable and professional, she is a kind and caring human being. I highly recommend Serenity Dental Spa for not only the outstanding and quality dental care, but also for Dr. Shahabi’s staff. They all played a pivotal role from the moment I called the office until I left knowing I had found the best dental practice in San Francisco!

I always enjoy my visits at Serenity Dental Spa – really feels like a spa there) nice music, aroma candles, tea, comfortable chairs with massage functions, blankets 🙂 I’ve been going for more than 2 yrs now, and am very happy with the results of the Invisalign program that Dr.Shahsbi prescribed. I also replaced all my old mercury fillings and Dr.Shahabi did all my new ones – she is such a pro! I was surprised how fast this has been done and at the highest quality. I brought my son and husband here too, now this is our family dentistry, and we all are very grateful for the professionalism of Dr.Shahabi herself and all her team members.

Have been using this dentist for 11 years. Dr Shahabi and her staff have always done a great job on my teeth, and have been there even for a couple of last-minute emergencies. She is really an all-around great dentist, and treats all her clients extremely well. I would highly recommend Dr Shahabi and Serenity Dental Spa to everyone – and I have! Highly recommended. Great service.

Dr. Shahabi is probably the most caring dentist I have the pleasure of seeing! She is very knowledgeable, super thorough and is extremely gentle. I’ve had poor experiences in the past with dentists, so I have anxiety around most dental visits but she always does her best to make me feel as comfortable as possible. I highly recommend her, especially if you’re a patient who needs a little extra TLC like myself.

Christine B. (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Shahabi and her staff are great. They made me feel very comfortable. A few days after my cleaning, I was experiencing some jaw pain. Dr. Shahabi’s team found me an oral surgeon who was available right away. She personally escorted me out and gave me clear directions. I’ll definitely be returning.

Diana Y. (Source: Zocdoc)


It was my second time at this Office and i am still thrilled. This time i experienced what a Dental Spa means. While i got my deep Cleaning i was getting a massage from the Chair and was watching a movie. Time was flying I also liked topical numbing gel much better than getting a injection. Sheila Shahabi was also making sure that i am comfortable and have no pain. Thanks again for this nice experiments I used to panic when i had an dental appointment. This time i wished it would have taken longer 9 so could finish the movie – lol) If you want a positive experience i defiantly can recommend her 

Kaitlyn G. (Source: Zocdoc)


I have been seeing Dr. Shahabi for around 8 years. In that entire time I have had excellent personal attention from both her and her staff. Dr. Shahabi is always attentive to my needs, makes sure I am comfortable, and has worked with me for years on improving my dental hygiene without judgment. I have also noticed new staff members that go above and beyond in their customer service. A particular standout is her office manager who knows me by face, has a great attitude and friendly personality, and works with my sometimes difficult schedule. She also makes sure I am always booked with Dr. Shahabi as that is my preference. I would and have recommended Serenity Dental to numerous friends and coworkers and would never dream of going elsewhere

Dr. Shahabi is such a great doctor and person. She has the BEST bedside manner – she makes you feel so comfortable and relaxed, she’s very soothing – no easy feat at a dentist’s office. Not only is she super professional and courteous, it’s like she was born to help others. Her staff is excellent as well – superior customer service, very patient and accomodating. I love this place and recomend it to my friends and co-workers.

I’ve been seeing Dr. Shahabi for over 10 years, and I couldn’t be happier. She is extremely professional and knowledgeable, and I completely trust her care. She has also recommended great specialists over the years when needed. On top of that she is a wonderful person, and makes patients feel very much at ease. The office staff is very helpful with dealing with insurance, appointments, etc. I highly recommend her!!

Thomas M. (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr Shahabi and her staff always out-perform! I had an emergency onlay replacement and Dr Shahabi had me in her chair and out the door in less than an hour. Wow. A truly great Dentist, and highly recommended. I have been a patient of Dr Shahabi for the last 12 years. If you want a professional working on your smile, there is no one better than Dr Shahabi.

Alexandria D. (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Shahabi is hands down the best. I’ve been going to her for 4 yrs and feel very taken care of after every visit. She has the best team working for her and is attentive to each patient. I’ve referred her to my colleagues and they all say the same thing about her and the serve she provides.

Dr Shahabi is ever so gracious, professional, upbeat, goes aboove and beyond the call of duty and is just so kind. She is the BEST dentist Ive ever had in SF. Her staff is always communicative, follow up is impeccable, they are dedicated and always smile. What an incredible crew. THANK YOU SOOO MUCH! My smile is better whenever I leave 🙂
