Sonja Babic DDS MS
Founder & General Dentist

Dr. Babic was scared of going to the dentist as a child, and her sister has severe dental anxiety to this day. It's been Dr. Babic's lifetime dream to build a practice where even people like her sister can feel at home.

Dr. Babic graduated from UT Austin and then went to the University of Southern California (USC) for her dental training. She served in the Army as a dentist for 4 years following dental school. Multiple associateships later, Dr. Babic finally built Comfydent Smiles the way she's been imagining since her dental school days.
