Qualifications and Experience
Like a lot of the patients that she treats, Dr. Salehezadeh grew up fearing and disliking her treating dentists. As an adult, when she opted for dentistry as her career choice, she vowed to be the polar opposite of the dentists she grew up averting. Her warm personality and superb dental skills allow her to do just that. Born and raised until the age of 9 in Iran, Dr. Shawn (Shabnam) Salehezadeh found her way to New York City by way of Texas. Her story: Dr. Salehezadeh received her Doctorate at University of Texas in 2003. She then completed an elective year of additional training in California. Having experienced living on the West Coast for a year, Dr. S decided to try living on the East Coast for a year as well before permanently returning to Texas. (Must be fair to both coasts!) Or so she thought -- the move to NYC occurred in 2004 and Dr. S has been happily a New York City transplant ever since. Dr. Salehezadeh and her friendly staff look forward to the various patients that seek care with them. When visiting Dr. S at Fine Dental, her patients have the luxury to stroll around Gallery 265 (an art gallery with a rotating roster of artists’ curated work) prior to their appointment. And when being treated by one of the gentle hygienists or Dr. S, patients can also take advantage of the Hong Kong-trained reflexologist giving wonderful massages. Overall, Dr. Salehezadeh and her office strive to improve the patients' experience and to have each patient feeling happy to have had the often-dreaded dental visit.
Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Salehezadeh was really great! She saw me within 10 minutes of arriving at the office, and immediately got down to work. Very funny and kind. Would highly recommend.
Dr. Salehezadeh is fantastic. I'm very happy with her!
One of the friendliest people I've ever met and she really cares about your overall health and life in general! I used to hate going to the dentist and she actually makes it enjoyable. You can tell she is very knowledgable and good at what she does, but she's also super fast!
I had a terrific experience with Dr. S. She was extremely patient and thorough with my cleaning and exam. I have always been filled with anxiety about my dental visits but Dr. S put me at ease. Dr S. Explained each step throughout the process. Her assistant is also kind and knowledgeable. I am getting the Invisilign with Dr. S and after only a few trays I am noticing a dramatic difference. Dr S was able to clean stains that other dentists were not. On my last visit, I had been experiencing sensitivity and she was quick to offer a solution that didn't involve drilling or anything unnecessary. I can't believe I am saying this but I am looking forward to my next visit! Her office is clean, comfortable and has some very cool art on the walls.
This was my first time seeing Dr. Salehzadeh as a patient and I was more than pleased. I had an overall great experience and I will most definitely go back to see her. I love my new smile! :)
Dr salehezadeh was great. She made me feel comfortable right away and took the time to go through my insurance plan and find the best and most affordable solution for my dental issue. Highly recommended.
Dr. Salehezadeh was a great dentist and I would recommend anyone looking for a new dentist in the area to give her a try! I was seated right away and she came back to introduce herself. I had new x-rays taken which was a quick and easy process and then was seated to have my teeth cleaned. I had a cavity filled right after the teeth cleaning ad the whole thing took about 1.5 hrs! Very efficient and good work done here.
Very reassuring, tells you what she's doing in and how she's doing it, as well as how long processes will take. Painless every visit. Couldn't recommend her enough!
The staff was very friendly and the office environment was very positive. Dr. Salehezadeh was extremely kind and caring and I felt very comfortable (which is rare for me because I've always been nervous at the dentist.) I highly recommend her!!!
Dr. Salehezadeh was great! Some small talk in the beginning, then x-rays, and then my cleaninng. She also explained me everything that was going in my mouth and made sure I understood. She kinldy referred me to another Dr. for extractions and explained me how my insurance works, which she doesn't do but did for me as I'm a newbie in this system. Super gentle with my mouth, didn't hurt at all and even had someone to give me a foot massage during my cleaning :)
Very personable doctor and staff. Fun yet professional environment. Made going to the dentist enjoyable!
Dr. Salehezadeh was great! She was very friendly and knowledgeable, and performed a great cleaning. I hadn't been to a dentist since I moved to the city (partially afraid of finding a dentist), and she couldn't have been nicer. Also showed me the before and after of what she cleaned and she really made a difference! Only thing that was a little disappointing was that I had a 10:00 AM appointment, and wasn't called in until 10:15. Once I was seen, everything went quickly, but I was hoping to be in and out within a half-hour and was not. Not a big deal, as the office was busy and I wouldn't let that deter you from visiting her.
I had a fantastic appointment with Dr. Salehezadeh! She's warm, funny, and made me feel immediately at ease. She did a great job of explaining in an understandable way what was going on in my mouth and what she needed to do to fix the aches I was experiencing. The free 15 minute foot massage for all new patients didn't hurt either! I've had bad experiences with dentists before and can be a bit phobic of these appointments, but I was laughing the whole time I was in Dr. Salehezadeh's office... as least as much as one can when someone has their fingers in your mouth. Could not recommend more highly!
Dr. S was hilarious! Great bed side manner, very easy to talk to! The whole staff was super patient and helpful during my visit. Just a quick cleaning and some X-Rays. I would absolutely recommend Fine Dental.
After living in NYC for 2 years without a dentist I finally decided to pluck up the courage and get a check-up, and am lucky to have found Dr Shawn Salehezadeh. My first appointment she saw me right away and made my teeth squeaky clean. I had to make follow up appointments for fillings, I had 3 fillings with her yesterday, and the process was the smoothest it has ever been, painless and easy (and this from someone who is really terrified of needles, drills and all that dental stuff). She's a great dentist and I will continue to see her for as long as I'm in NY.
Great dentist! Gentle cleaning! Very happy!
very professional and informative on how to b orally correct to protect your choppers!
I was in a major bind and was able to get in right away! The receptionist was also amazing and helped me get the right information for my insurance--she was so helpful! Dr. Salehezadeh did not make me wait one minute and saw me right away. She was extremely nice and fixed my chipped tooth perfectly! This will definitely remain my dentist office!
I could not recommend this doctor or her staff more enthusiastically. I never thought I would leave a dentist appointment and immediately text friends raving about it. The office is half art gallery and is beautiful. The office staff is prompt and wonderful. As a person, Dr. S herself could not be more friendly and engaging. As a professional, she is incredibly thorough and clearly very good at her job. Half of my mouth was completely numb but the other half left the DENTIST in full smile! Thank you to the whole team!!
Dr S. was great and actually made visiting the dentist fun. She has a great disposition and chair side manner and takes the time to listen to you and also explain what's going on with your teeth. I also liked the fact I was able to get in as a new patient and get my teeth cleaned on the first visit at the same time. She really goes above and beyond and I even got my old Invisalign retainers cleaned. Thanks Dr S! See you in 6 months!
Dr. Salehezadeh was great! Really funny and nice. Cleaning was very thorough and the staff was amazing. Definitely will recommend.
Overall I had a wonderful experience at Dr. S's. The only negative comment I can make was it did take longer than expected, I had set aside one hour and arrived 15 minutes early (like the staff asked me to) so I could fill out new client paperwork. I sat in the lobby for 10 minutes before a receptionist walked over to the front and asked if I needed help. I then waited another 20-30 minutes until I was taken into my appointment. Once I was seated in the dental chair I had to wait another 5-10 minutes before the hygienist took my x-rays then after getting my x-rays done I waited another 10 until the Dr. showed up. Once the Dr was in the room the experience flowed smoothly. Dr. S was very attentive and thorough, I was highly impressed by her knowledge after only a few minutes of checking out my x-rays. Then I was pleasantly surprised when I received a foot rub from their in house masseuse while my teeth were cleaned, I was completely relaxed during the procedure. I would def recommend Dr.S and am now a patient!
Great dentist near 34th St. Personable, funny and very nice. Have already recommended to a few friends.
Dr. S has been my dentist for about 5 years now. Most recently, she has been my Invisalign doctor. Like most normal people, I don't exactly like going to the dentist, but these past few years with Dr. S have been the most pleasant (relatively speaking) dental visits. Nice doctor who has always been honest with me and told me the truth about my teeth/hygiene, plus pretty cool staff and location... Thanks to her I will have a beautiful smile very soon:) All around gets my recommendation!
Attention to detail, great attitude and clean teeth! The staff is always super helpful and polite. Dr. Salehezadeh is beyond accommodating and nice. I have been a patient for a few years now and because of her honesty/seriousness regarding my dental hygiene I've become super aware of what things to do and not do. She is always very up front about your options and does not recommend unnecessary treatment. Always a good experience.
Made it a painless, fun visit.
I've been a happy patient for a good few years. at first I was intimated by dr. salehezadeh's honesty, but it really gave me a reality check on my negligence of taking care of my teeth. I now appreciate her, and am thankful for her tough love that brought me to actually wanting to/knowing how to take care of my teeth and improve on my oral hygiene. I'm now going through Invisalign treatment to straighten my teeth, and I couldn't be happier knowing that it will make me look better esthetically, but also my teeth will be healthier. dr. salehezadeh and her staff are warm, kind, personal, friendly, energetic, overall awesome, and I'd recommend this office to family and friends.
I am an orthodontist who works very closely with Dr. Salehezadeh, and we have many patients in common. I can therefore say with great confidence that I have seen the masterly results of her work in the mouths of others, and can recommend her without reservation! The quality of her work is outstanding, but it is truly her personality that shines! My spouse and many of our friends are also her patients, and I do not entrust the well-being of my loved ones to just anyone! I think she is a wonderful dentist and a truly good and loving person, and cannot say enough wonderful things about her. :)
I am always very impressed with the level of care and professionalism Dr. Salehezadeh provides at her office along with her staff. I've been a long time patient and had a tremendous amount of work done at this office (sadly I'm not blessed with the finest set of teeth). I really like the new office and the gallery. I usually have to look at the art after my appointment as they're very punctual. Dr. Salehezadeh communicates clearly and practically about what is to be done and how... I personally like that a lot. Gives me great comfort to know what's going on in there. I must mention one other thing about this office that's of extreme value to me. Their lab technician Elliot is a true dental artist. I've had major work done due to an accident and the bridge spanned many teeth. The work that comes out of his lab is excellent and not only technically proficient but also aesthetically perfect. I like that the lab work is done in house and adjustments can be made on the fly. It's very efficient for me as a patient.
