Dr. Arash Mehrnama


Prior to dental school, I had spent my entire life in the DC Metropolitan area.  After spending four years in New York City for dental school and another year in North Carolina for an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency, it was no question that I wanted to return to the area I call home.


During my years in New York City and North Carolina, I am thankful for having had the opportunity to learn from mentors and colleagues that have helped shape me into the dentist that I am today.  My goal in this profession is to build a connection with my patients and see what their dental goals are and to do what I can to help them achieve those goals.


In my free time, I enjoy working out, watching sports (Go Caps!), playing guitar and singing, watching movies, and attending concerts.  I also have a pet parrot who has been in my family since before I was born.


I am a member of the following organizations:

  • The Academy of General Dentistry
  • Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society
  • Maryland State Dental Association


Dr. Behnaz Shakoori


As a dentist I have been treating my patients in the Greenbelt area since the year 2000, and I still genuinely enjoy what I do every day! The friendships I've made with my patients and their families over the years mean a lot to me. It is my goal to always treat patients as if they are an extension of my own family. I can provide them with the highest quality of care and with a cosmetic smile they will enjoy for years to come.
                                
My undergraduate studies were in Biology and Chemistry at SUNY College at Brockport, NY and I received my Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA in 2000. I enjoy spending time with my husband Ali and children, Niekon and Dustin.
