Hamidi

Bahram Hamidi DDS, NMD

Dr. Bahram Hamidi feels that the oral health profession is even more important during these uncertain times. In order for us to be healthy, we have to look at the human body as a whole, not just isolated systems. His focus is on finding the root cause of underlying issues and its oral-systemic connection.

Dr. Hamidi utilizes the most advanced techniques and technology while planning his patients' individualized care. Esthetic dentistry relies on detail, meticulous planning, and artistry. His use of Digital Smile Design and Biomimetic dentistry results in the most accurate desired outcome while preserving as much natural tooth structure.

”I am pleased when someone takes the information we give them to heart and starts implementing changes that improve their whole body health. I want the best for each person in my care: happy, healthy, well-enjoyed lives and smiles they love to share!”

Shahi

Sara Shahi DDS, NMD

Dr. Sara Shahi is incredibly passionate about the field of Pediatric Dentistry. She endeavors to positively impact her patient’s health, well-being, and happiness. Her practice philosophy goes beyond just looking for cavities. By treating the patient as a whole and exploring the oral systemic connection, Dr. Sara goes above and beyond to engage her patients to believe that “Healthy Smile, Healthy You!”

Dr. Shahi applies a minimally invasive approach to treatments and believes prevention is key. All this while helping children develop great attitudes towards their health and loving their visits with the dentist.

Education

Dr. Shahi received her Doctor of Dental Surgery from New York University and Postgraduate Pediatric Dentistry training at a Columbia University-based residency program. In addition to her medical Doctorates, Dr. Sara holds bachelor's degrees in Biochemistry from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and an English Literature BA from Tehran University.

Dr. Shahi is a Diplomate of The American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (A.B.P.D) and has been certified by the Integrative Biological Dental Medicine (I.B.D.M.) and Naturopathic Medicine (N.M.D.) Boards. She is an active member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association, New York County Dental Society and The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology; she is also a certified Invisalign provider.

Dr. Shahi was inspired to help people through medicine by her mother and father, each an accomplished “Dr. Shahi” in their respective fields. They showed her starting at a young age how impactful and satisfying a life helping patients can be.

Outside the Practice

When not practicing Dentistry, or traveling to learn about the latest innovations in the field, Dr. Shahi is most often found near her apartment enjoying a good stretch at a Pilates session, reading everything from the latest dental literature to the Sunday Comics with one of the city’s great coffees, or exploring (and occasionally indulging in) NYC’s unique and amazing art scene.

Halary

Atoussa Halary, DDS

As a dentist, I have the opportunity to interact with a variety of people from different backgrounds. This has helped improve my communication skills and my patience, while expanding and deepening my love for dentistry and everything it has to offer.

By informing my patients about the connections between their oral and systemic health, I have been able to create trust and understanding. I especially enjoy spending time addressing their concerns. Doing so allows me to better aid my patients towards their needs to get healthy, not just orally but systemically as well.

I enjoy interacting with patients on a daily basis, establishing and nurturing relationships that create trust. Trust is critical, for with it the patient comes to understand I care about them, personally, and knows I am providing care and guidance based on their specific needs. I want each patient to know I have their best interests at heart and am here to help them better their oral and overall health, so they are able to live a full, happy, and healthy life!

~ Dr. Atoussa Halary

Education and Experience

Dr. Halary was drawn to dentistry as the ideal combination of art and science, two of her greatest passions. She attended the University of Maryland School of Dentistry, in Baltimore, graduating in 2017. She then completed a one year General Practice Residency at Harlem Hospital Center in New York.

She has been practicing since 2017 and is excited by the versatility that dentistry offers, with each new person deserving a fully unique treatment approach. Each patient, too, needs to understand the connection between the oral and systemic health, and their specific concerns.

Dr. Halary excels at helping patients understand the critical interplay between the body and mouth. In turn, patients are able to change behaviors and develop better habits and practices, improving their smile’s health and that of their body.

Continuing Education and Professional Affiliations

Through continuing education, Dr. Halary stays abreast of the latest technology and advances in dentistry. This allows her to better educate her patients, and provide the best possible care with ideal outcomes.

In addition to taking numerous continuing education courses through the American Dental Association, Dr. Halary participates in several dental study groups.

Beyond the Practice

A native of Silver Spring, Maryland, Dr. Halary now resides in Manhattan. She enjoys walking around the city for hours, exploring new-to-her places and getting to know the residents.

Dr. Halary’s parents live in Maryland, so she visits them as often as possible. She has a younger sister, too, who is moving to New York to pursue a dental career!

Diana

Periodontal Therapist

I worked as a dental assistant for four years prior to earning my dental hygiene degree in 2012. I became a part of the TriBeCa Dental Associates team in 2017. I consider it a privilege to be the source of an inspiriting co-discovery with patients, using the latest technology to not only visually explore their oral cavity, but to also discover oral health is the gateway to overall health. For me, I enjoy knowing that I can be the source of biology-based knowledge that promotes well-being and has the ability to flourish in every experience both personally and professionally.

I have the fortune of having Chino as my four-legged friend, a pug. He has no choice but to come along to my favorite independent bookstores. When I want to take my impulse to learn to a multi- sensory level, I explore the streets of New York. There is something nostalgic about the brownstone neighborhoods in Brooklyn, which I love. Otherwise, I like to surprise myself with a last minute trip to a different part of the world.

After receiving my B.A. in Biology from Mount Saint Mary College, I continued on to receive a degree in dental hygiene at New York University College of Dentistry. My favorite part of my job is getting to meet new people and build relationships with them. I love helping people achieve health and leaving them with a smile. Dr. Hamidi and Dr. Halary are the best as well. They always place their patients’ needs first and are open and honest. The TDA team always has fun together and works hard together. There is never a dull moment in the office!

Dancing is one of my passions and something I did competitively until I was 18. I grew up on Long Island and spend many weekends there hanging out with my family and getting some fresh air. When I'm not at work, I love getting outside and going to the beach or going for a nice hike with my dog Zoey.

Practice Management

As the operations manager, I oversee our Manhattan and Brooklyn offices keeping efficiency and organization as a top priority. We treat all of our patients as individuals and believe in our philosophy with the oral-systemic connection following biological, biomimetic, and conservative dentistry. All of our providers provide ethical and adequate care while continuing their education through lectures and continuing education courses.

Our practice works as a team and has respect for one another in and outside of our dental practices. While improving our patients' overall health and consequently improving the quality of their life we make sure to make sure each of our patients' needs and concerns are met. 

During my free time, I love spending time with my boyfriend and our families either on the water or doing something active!

I began my career as a dental assistant in 2017 and am currently studying dental hygiene. Until then, I spend my days preparing and organizing tools, assisting the doctors, and providing excellent patient care. I love to learn, whether it is about my patients’ lives or a new technique. I appreciate how knowledgeable our doctors are and how they always put patient care first.

I love coming home to my adorable Chihuahua. My hobby, for the time being, is homework and classes, but I do find time to walk around the lake at least three times a week.

As a fairly new member of Tribeca Dental Associates, I have been a certified dental assistant for the past 4 years. As a foreign-trained dentist, it is a great opportunity to work at TDA helping patients achieve beautiful, healthy smiles while striving to keep patients comfortable and at ease. Feeling lucky to be a part of this honorable team, all the staff are always happy and share their depth of knowledge with patients about our philosophy of the oral-systemic connection.

After attending Denison University in Ohio pursuing a degree in Theatre Arts and Cinematography with a minor in communications, I began teaching middle school English, theatre arts, and photography for over 8eight years in the Bronx. I decided to ultimately focus my career in dentistry while taking my first job working alongside providers specializing in oral appliances and CPAP devices for sleep apnea. I joined the team at Tribeca Dental Associates in 2020 as a chairside and laboratory assistant while completing my undergraduate degree at the City College of New York in Visual Media Studies.

Striving to attend dental school in the future, learning from providers at Tribeca Dental Associates about the oral-0systemic connection and the importance of patient care and overall wellness is one of the reasons I joined this team. TDA treats all patients with care and respect striving to meet each of our patients' needs.
