Saba Khosravi – RDH

Saba RDH

Hesperia

My name is Saba Khosravi and I am a Registered Dental Hygienist. I am an alumnus of Loma Linda University School of Dentistry, earning a Bachelor’s of Science in Dental Hygiene. I aim to provide the most current, effective methods to detect and treat all forms of periodontal disease, in a comfortable setting. One of my key motivators of my position is not only forming lifelong relationships with my patients, but to change the stigma of what a visit at the dentist should be like.

In my spare time, I enjoy living an active lifestyle. I like to go to the gym, play soccer, and spend time with my family. It is important to always try new things, so I try to taste food from all different parts of the world any chance that I get.

As a patient, you should expect to have quality, comprehensive care. Each patient should be individually assessed and given proper direction to improve or maintain their oral health at an optimal level. One of my small goals for each patient is for them to understand everything about their oral health as well as we do as dental professionals.
