From very early on Dr. Saba Ahmed has held on to the belief that your mouth is your gateway to your overall health. It is around this belief that she has shaped her personality and lifestyle.
In 2007, Dr. Ahmed graduated from The University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio after completing her undergraduate degree in Biology at The University of TX Pan American in Edinburg, TX. Soon after dental School, Dr. Ahmed worked on her hospital-based residency (GPR), in Lee’s Summit, MO. This is where she trained with medically compromised patients, kids with special needs, and providing sedation dentistry (including nitrous relaxing gas, oral sedation, IV sedation, and completing complex cases in a hospital’s operating room with an anesthesiologist).
Thanks to her residency experiences, Dr. Ahmed has had a wide array of skills in all facets of dentistry. She personally loves working with children. With her charming personality, excellent bedside manners, her patients know Dr. Ahmed to be friendly, understanding and caring. It is no surprise then that for her dental expertise and warm personality most of her patients always come back to her.
To keep her skills sharp and dental knowledge updated, Dr. Ahmed is an active member of several accredited organizations such as The American Dental Association, The Academy of General Dentistry, The American Orthodontics Society, and Texas Academy of General Dentistry.
Her keen sense of devotion to dentistry as well as love for the community she resides in can be seen from her additional community service work. Once a week, Dr. Ahmed volunteers her time by managing a Shifa clinic, which is a non-profit clinic, located in Southwest Houston. As a Dental Director at Shifa, she works with underprivileged and underserved individuals by offering her unmatched expertise in the field of dentistry.
In case you think she looks familiar, she does! For her dental expertise, she has appeared on local news, participates in discussions about dental topics as well as delivers oral hygiene presentations at local schools!
When not practicing dentistry, Dr. Ahmed enjoys traveling, exercising, spending time with family and friends, and most of all, enjoying the variety of culinary treats in our great city of Houston!
