I decided to become a dentist because I wanted to help people gain confidence in their smiles and help them feel better about the way that they looked. The most rewarding part for me would be having patients that might be a little bit nervous about coming in to see the dentist, but by the time they leave, they feel like family, and they're comfortable in our office. As time goes on, the more I see them, you see the shift where coming to the dentist doesn't make them anxious anymore. It's kind of just like another appointment that they have to go to.
I grew up in Brandon, Manitoba in Canada. It was a really small town, and I went to university there. After that, I moved to New York, and I went to NYU for dental school. I did my four years there, and then from there, I came down to South Carolina.
Because dentistry's always changing, it's important to stay up-to-date on the newest materials and techniques to help our patients be more comfortable in the chair and for us to provide them with dental care that's the best quality that we can find.
Dr. Sana Ahmad, pronounced AH-med, grew up in the small town of Brandon, Manitoba in Canada. After completing college at Brandon University, she was trying to decide on what profession would allow her to make a difference in people’s lives. She realized making people smile and giving them confidence in their smiles were two things that made her happy. After being accepted into New York University’s College of Dentistry, she moved to New York City the next year.
Although far from home, she loved and took in every experience the city had to offer. After meeting her significant other, she decided to move to South Carolina after graduation to be closer to him as well as family.
Some of her favorite pastimes outside work include reading and baking. Not surprisingly given her baking hobby, she has a huge sweet tooth! She is excited about building her life here in South Carolina while being able to help others in the community as part of the All Smiles Dental team.
