Dr. Shady Shaaban

From as early as four years old, Dr. Shady Shaaban was drawn to the world of dentistry, inspired by his father's dedication to helping others through his dental practice. This early exposure not only sparked his interest but set him on a path to fulfilling his own dreams of becoming a restorative dentist, a dream that has now come to fruition as he serves with the Nuvia team in Fullerton, CA.

Dr. Shaaban first lived in the US as a high school exchange student. It was during this time that he fell in love with the Midwest and would return to the States frequently in the following years. It was during the 4th year being in the US that he met his wife.  Once he completed his dental training and became certified and licensed as a restorative dentist, he practiced in the Midwest. Although he loves the midwestern states, he and his family eventually moved to California seeking a warmer climate. 

Outside of the Clinic

Outside of dentistry, Dr. Shaaban is a man of many interests and talents. He is both a scuba diver and a pilot. He also loves sports. He loves to play, watch, and coach soccer. Although he no longer coaches his children’s soccer teams, he enjoys watching them play on local soccer club teams. He also enjoys camping, road trips, biking, and other fast-paced sports.

Why Nuvia

He is very excited about changing people’s lives in 24 hours. Having experience with all-on-4 dental implants and doing them the traditional way that can take up to 10+ months before a patient gets their permanent teeth, Nuvia’s process that allows patients to get their permanent teeth in 24 hours is very exciting to Dr. Shaaban.

To patients considering the life-changing journey of full mouth dental implants, Dr. Shaaban offers a message of assurance and commitment. With him and the Nuvia team, patients can expect to be in caring and competent hands, supported by professionals dedicated to exceeding expectations and genuinely changing lives for the better.
