Saba Ahmed

DDS

Offering the finest dental care for my patients in a professional setup where they are assured to receive quality service.

In 2007, Dr. Ahmed graduated from The University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio after completing her undergraduate degree in Biology at The University of TX Pan American in Edinburg, TX. Soon after dental School, Dr. Ahmed worked on her hospital-based residency (GPR), in Lee’s Summit, MO. This is where she trained with medically compromised patients, kids with special needs, and providing sedation dentistry (including nitrous relaxing gas, oral sedation, IV sedation, and completing complex cases in a hospital’s operating room with an anesthesiologist).

Thanks to her residency experiences, Dr. Ahmed has had a wide array of skills in all facets of dentistry. She personally loves working with children. With her charming personality, excellent bedside manners, her patients know Dr. Ahmed to be friendly, understanding and caring. It is no surprise then that for her dental expertise and warm personality most of her patients always come back to her.

To keep her skills sharp and dental knowledge updated, Dr. Ahmed is an active member of several accredited organizations such as The American Dental Association, The Academy of General Dentistry, The American Orthodontics Society, and Texas Academy of General Dentistry.

When not practicing dentistry, Dr. Ahmed enjoys traveling, exercising, spending time with family and friends, and most of all, enjoying the variety of culinary treats in our great city of Houston!

Testimonials

“My seven year old and I are new patients. Dr. A is great with my daughter and fully explains the situation and procedures. She has a great way of explaining the process to her and keeping her calm.”

“Dr Ahmed was so thorough and helpful. I’ve seen her before too: She spent considerable time with me, explaining treatment options real well, making sure I was comfortable before proceeding. I could tell she was sincere in her approach and really looking out for my best interest. That’s a quality I wish my last dentist had!”
