Associate Dentist

Dr Shahana Abed

Dr Shahana Abed is a passionate dentist and a people person. With her creative spirit and particular interest in aesthetics, she sees dentistry as an art; she includes all aspects of general dentistry as well as whitening, crowns, bridges, veneers and implants in her practice. She is always expanding her scope and keeping up with latest advancements in dentistry in techniques and technology.

She is an advanced aesthetic practitioner; qualified in neurotoxin and dermal filler for both cosmetic and therapeutic modalities as well as medical grade skin treatments such as chemical peels, mesotherapy and PRP. Her patients love coming to see her; she is empathetic and places much emphasis on providing holistic treatment to her patients.

After completing her degree at Wits University in Johannesburg, South Africa in 2002, she spent her early years in service to the public; working in both hospital and community practices in rural South Africa as well as in private practice before migrating to the UK. With a passion for prevention, she has received recognition in both these countries for instituting dental health education workshops in underprivileged and lower socio-economic areas.

In 2007 she migrated to Australia and Dr Shahana became passionate about giving back; she does everything possible to motivate towards the understanding of prevention, and a better standard of dental health. It is this passion for dentistry that lead her to teaching; she has taught dental students at Universities in South Africa, the UK and is currently teaching dental students at Griffith University on the Gold Coast.

In 2022 she founded Aurora Academy; a dental education platform which provides training to dentists globally.

Dr Shahana brings with her more than 20 years of experience in the field of dentistry; in practice, academics, research and education.

Outside of dentistry, Dr Shahana is whimsical and a dreamer; with her love of literature and the classics and a diploma in Journalism and creative writing, she writes short stories and poetry, and enjoys time with her family. Ultimately, being mother to her children will always remain her most challenging role.

I had a filling with dr Yuen and Summer, they were both great. Dr Yuen was incredibly informative which made the process much more comfortable. They were great during the procedure, easily the most comfortable I've felt in the dentists chair!

Easy to book online, instant confirmation and great follow up from reception. ❤️ Dr Zen didn’t race through a consult like a checklist, that was my first impression! I usually feel like there’s a ‘procedure’ at the dentist and the time limit. He took excellent photos (if you can call tooth decay 🦷 photos excellent) to show and carefully explain what my treatment plan should look like and most importantly why!!
