    Dr. Shadbeh Taghizadeh

    Dr. Shadbeh Taghizadeh (Dr. T) earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Massachusetts Lowell, graduating cum laude, with honors from the Commonwealth Honors Program, and was inducted to the Tau Beta Pi National Engineering Honor Society. Dr. T’s post-graduate/dental training is from the University of New England College of Dental Medicine where she received her dental degree in 2018, along with a certificate in Dental Public Health. She received many distinguished honors upon graduating, including a leadership award from the International College of Dentists USA Section and Proctor & Gamble and recognition from the Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) for participating in community-centered, collaborative learning and inter-professional practice.

    Dr. T pursued a career in dentistry because just like engineering, there are different treatment options that offer the same or even better outcomes. It is also a blend of art and science, which allows her to be more creative, making every day more fun and interesting.

    She loves to educate patients on excellent oral health care practices and inspire them to be their best selves. “I want to help people directly. Dentistry allows me to connect with my community and directly serve the needs of people individually. Everyone has their own idea of what beauty is and I want to provide them the orthodontic options that will address their esthetic and/or functional concerns.”

    When Dr. T is in not in the office creating beautiful smiles, she enjoys spending time with friends and family and going long walks, swimming, and cooking.

These technologies allow for efficient, comfortable, and most importantly, customized treatment for every patient.
