Dr. Taheri graduated from Western University of health and science College of Dentistry and started her adult education in Kansas University exploring the field of Engineering.   As a successful engineer working for big companies such as Nortel and Aspen Technology, she continued her education by getting her MBA from MIT. In the path of changing carrier to healthcare, Dr. Taheri received her Dental Hygiene degree from NYU.   Working as a caring and passionate hygienist for two years she fell in love with all aspects of the dental field and was encouraged to continue her education and become a dentist.

Dr. Taheri excels in all phases of dentistry, but her personal favorite is the cosmetic branch. This allows her to see how deeply dentistry can affect a person’s self-confidence, outlook on life and even relationships. In fact, her favorite quote is: “A smile is a curve that sets everything straight” – (Phyllis Diller). After years of education and experience, Dr. Taheri decided to dedicate her talent, passion and care to the warm and loving people of Southern California.  

It’s here that Dr. Taheri met the love of her life and established a home. Along her husband Shervin and their baby girl they love to spend time in the warm California outdoors, playing with their pug JoJo. They share much of their free time with family and friends whether for a meal or simply to play a game of cards. 

Nadia’s wish is to establish a flourishing practice where the relationship between her and her patients will grow strong thru the years. Dr. Taheri is proudly showcasing all her capabilities in modern dentistry at Hollywood Smiles Dental where she and her team are excited to treat the office’s existing and new patients.
