Dr Mustafa Makati
"Hello, my name is Dr Mustafa Makati and I've had the privilege of treating my patients for over 15 years. I followed in my father's footsteps after watching him treat his patients with skill and compassion. I wake everyday with a deep sense of purpose and humility, knowing I am the trusted health adviser for so many people. I do not take this responsibility lightly and treat my patients with the utmost care and concern. I fully appreciate how the right dental treatment can transform and improve a person’s quality of life and confidence. I look forward to meeting you soon."

Dr Zainab Bhagat
"I am Dr. Zainab Bhagat, BDS, DMD. I graduated from Dental College in India in 2015. Backed with a vision of serving humanity, one smile at a time, I successfully managed my private practice of 3 years. The dream to expand my knowledge and skills towards newer advances in the field of dentistry, brought me to the United States. I graduated from Western University College of Dental Medicine, Pomona, CA in 2021. I am fueled by my passion for understanding the nuances of dental as well as the aesthetic needs of my patients. I consider myself as a “forever student”, eager to build on my clinical experience as a dental practitioner as well as stay in tune with the latest avenues circumscribing digital and Implant dentistry. I bring with me a sound academic foundation of dental science coupled with extensive experiences and direct patient contact, making me certain that I am exactly where I need to be. My clinical experience, in two highly diverse countries, has helped me reinforce my self-confidence, self-efficacy, interpersonal abilities. I am a true advocate of mindfulness in the workplace is key to success - a tenet I live out through my interests in yoga, meditation, reading, and composing poems."
