Laura Sharbash

DDS, FAGD, D.ABDSM

Diplomate, American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine

As a dedicated dental professional with a passion for holistic well-being, I merge expertise in dentistry with a commitment to overall health. With a Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD), and Diplomate in the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine (D.ABDSM), I aim to provide comprehensive care that transcends traditional dentistry.

In my practice, I prioritize personalized care, emphasizing preventive strategies and patient education. I believe that optimal oral health contributes significantly to overall well-being, and I am committed to guiding individuals towards healthier smiles and lives.

When I’m not crafting beautiful smiles or furthering my knowledge in dental advancements, I find solace and strength in the practice of yoga and pilates. These disciplines not only rejuvenate me but also inspire a holistic approach to healthcare, influencing my patient-centered philosophy. Let’s redefine dentistry together, nurturing not just healthy smiles but fostering complete well-being.
