Meet Dr. Sara Khaledi, D.M.D.
Dr. Sara and Dr. Jacquie have known each other and been best friends working together since their residency programs together at Boston University. Dr. Sara, originally from California, went to U.C.L.A. and then continued her dental training and specialty at Tufts and Boston University Dental Schools.
What makes Dr. Sara unique is her extensive training demands her to perform all of her own patient’s exams, x-ray evaluations and hygiene visits. Dr. Sara says that the most significant aspect of meeting a patient for the first time is getting their proper history for an accurate diagnosis. This feature should never be placed on the responsibility of an assistant or hygienist, inconsequential of how good they are. Dr. Sara says, “The best diagnosticians are the best doctors”. She likes to be the one to meet and greet first time patients and walk them through the offices. She takes the time out to get to know the patients and families for a more personable touch.
Dr. Sara’s two daughters keep her busy in her spare time while her husband is also busy running his own company in midtown Manhattan, not far from our NYC office. Dr. Sara says that I am so thankful that everything is so close together since the kids seem to get more and more homework each year.
In her free time, when Dr. Sara is not at the gym, her passion is watching the cooking channel and trying new dishes sometimes with ingredients she never heard of. We all love to taste test, especially when she tries something new and sweet in the baking department.
