Making people smile is the best profession in the world. To be a part of the process and help guide each patient is empowering, challenging, exciting and gratifying. Working with people is what life is all about.
Straight teeth, to me, are just part of orthodontics; the smile of a patient when we unveil their new smile is the Trü indication we have brought some happiness to someone’s life. I love helping people on their journey to realizing that they have a beautiful smile just waiting to be transformed.
My team and I love our patients because we appreciate everything about them that makes them unique. From all walks of life, each person comes to the orthodontic process with a unique set of circumstances and needs that we strive to cater to.
Dr. Zahra Hassantash has a passion for perfecting beautiful smiles. She recognized the value of orthodontic treatment when she was a teenager after her own braces were removed and she saw the difference in her smile. Being able to create an attractive smile and a healthy bite for others is why she became an orthodontist.
Dr. Hassantash attended Indiana University School of Dentistry, where she completed her Doctor of Dental Surgery and graduated first in her class. She continued her education at Seton Hill University Center for Orthodontics, where she received her Master of Science in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics. While in school, Dr. Hassantash worked with the Seal Indiana Program, which provided access to dental care to children who may not have otherwise received it.
When she is not at work, you can find Dr. Hassantash enjoying the outdoors on a beautiful day biking and hiking. She also loves to travel and experience the culture, cuisine and attractions of different places.
Dr. Bailey’s love for the profession of orthodontics started as a result of her experience with braces as a teenager. She had the opportunity to work with her orthodontist during high school, who inspired her career choice, and is still an influence on her to this day. Dr. Bailey takes pride in being able to help patients achieve their best smile and enjoys getting to know her patients and their families during the process; this is her favorite part of the profession.
Dr. Bailey attended Howard University where she received her Doctor of Dental Surgery as well as her post-graduate training in Orthodontics. She was inducted into the prestigious national dental honor society, Omicron Kappa Upsilon, in recognition of her academic and professional performance. She is an active member of the dental community and is committed to advancing her skills through continuing education.
Outside of work, you can find Dr. Bailey participating in many of the outdoor activities that Northern Virginia has to offer, while spending time with her husband Jason and their adopted Foxhound, Coco. You can often find Dr. Bailey on the tennis court, jogging a local trail or experimenting with food, either at home or in a new and exciting destination!
