About

Dr. Sara Shayan graduated from dental school in Fort Lauderdale, Florida (Nova Southeastern University) in 2013. Upon graduation, she was chosen to attend a residency program in Advanced Education in General Dentistry at the University of Texas in San Antonio where she spent an enriching year expanding on her dental skills and experiences. At the completion of her formal dental training, she moved back to her native home in Ontario and looks forward to educating patients about preventative dentistry and oral health care, as well as providing excellent dental treatment.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

I am a dentist with a passion for what I do. After graduating from dental school in 2013, I decided to dedicate another year or my life to higher education. I began a one year residency in Advanced Eduaction in General Dentistry at the University of Texas in San Antonio. In addition to expanding on the skills I learned in dental school, I learned more advanced procedures and treatment planned more complex cases. My skill set includes implant placement and restoration, complex extractions, bone augmentation procedures, connective tissue grafts, sinus lifts, utilizing CADCAM technology and IV conscious sedation.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

Dr. Shayan enjoys treating both children and adults and enjoys all aspects of dentistry

    Dr. Sara explained the details of any problems and gives me time to think about what works for my budget and how to treat my tooth. Most importantly, the whole process was comfortable. I will keep going there with Dr.Sara.

    I had my first apt booked at Urbanview Dentail with Dr Shayan. Unfortunately, just before the apt had to rescheduled so I ended up seeing Dr. Jeelani - thankfully for me, Dr. Jeelani was amazing, as were the rest of the team at Urbanview. I have no doubt Dr. Shayan would have been equally as wonderful (my boyfriend actually goes to Dr. Shayan and speaks very highly!!). I have already gone for 2 more visits, and will continue to go to Urbanview Dental while I live in the city :)

    Enjoyed my first visit to Urbanview Dental very much! The staff and the whole team were very welcoming and friendly. The place was also very neat and clean and modern looking. Will definitely be going back there in the future! Big thanks to Opencare for connecting me with this place that fits all my needs! Would definitely recommend using Opencare and visiting Urbanview Dental for your next dental visit!

    Dr Sara is extremely friendly and professional. She is very thorough with her diagnosis and she will tell you exactly what is your situation. The service is a little expensive compared to other clinics but you wont regret it

    I did not meet with Dr Shayan yet, but I can say I truly praise all the staff I encountered at the Urbanview Clinic. The clinic was very clean, organized, and stylishly designed. There was probably only a 1 minute wait for my appointment. The conversation with my hygienist was clear and enjoyable, sharing a few life anecdotes, but not in uncomfortable excess. Just perfect. I really loved my previous dentist office and tried this visit because of OpenCare, but I had such a good experience and this is a very convenient location for me, that I might truly make the permanent switch to Urbanview for all my future dental needs. I recommend this clinic to anyone desiring a new dentist.

    Dr. Shayan and her team were great! They are very communicative, being very on top of scheduling my time and giving me reminders for in-take forms, etc. They also would text message, with very quick responses, which is great in my hectic schedule! The whole team was very knowledgeable and talked me through all procedures - I find it so key for healthcare professionals to explain to patients what they doing so we can be educated, informed, and build trust with our healthcare providers. I commend Dr. Shayan's team for their effort!!

    Having recently moved to the city, this was my first ever experience of visiting a dentist in the city and I’m happy to state that I plan to make it my permanent stop for any dental needs! The entire staff from the receptionist, to the dental hygienist, the doctors taking your X-rays and photos to Dr. Sara Shayan herself are top notch! Infact the dental hygienist was so thorough yet gentle and careful with my cleaning that I almost felt like I was falling asleep - an oxymoron for most dental experiences! Dr. Shayan was very comforting and takes her time. She’s informative, easy to talk to, and explains the results of your dental examination in detail and in a layman way. My overall experience here was excellent and I would highly recommend this dental practice to everyone! Thank you!

    UrbanView Dental is a great practice, the environment is eye-candy, sterile and would visit again. The front-desk is welcoming and makes sure any questions you have are answered. Dr. Sara Shayan is kind in nature and the other staff as well, she explains things with clarity and depth. During my appointment she went over my X-Ray and gave me a prescription for appropriate treatment.

    Dr. Shayan is incredible! Previous dental experiences have left me more anxious than necessary but after a short and sweet conversation about my concerns, she proceeded with steady hands and a clear and calm walk through of every single thing happening in that room. This helped a ton. No rush, no fuss. Answered all my questions and was super patient! This is my new dentist. Thanks for introducing us, Opencare!

    Dr. Sara Shayan and her staff were extremely professional, cheerful, and helpful. The entire experience felt almost therapeutic thanks to their great service. Dr Shayan and Nina took the time to carefully explain every procedure they were going to do, walked me through areas of concern after the mouth exam, and reassured me that it'd be totally okay to take a break if I needed to. I have had some unpleasant memories when visiting dental offices in the past, but Urbanview definitely blew me away. They are now my favourite dental office.

    I was walked through every step. A dentist has never explained to me what exactly they were doing when they did a check up. I finally understand the process and purpose. The staff was also very aware that a lot of people have bad dentist experiences, and made sure I felt comfortable. Highly recommend!
