Comfortable and relaxing dental experience
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.
Dr. Sara worked as a general dentist for several years prior to following her passion in surgery. She got her specialty training in periodontology at the University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles. Dr. Sara has done exceptional work for us. Dr. Sara is frequently invited to give lectures at dental meetings in Austin and at international dental conferences. In her free time, she enjoys hiking and traveling to different states with her husband and husky.
Dr. Tarek is a board certified orthodontist and was Dr. Babic's classmate at USC's dental school. Dr. Tarek received his training in orthodontics at the University of Pacific in San Francisco, CA. A highly decorated orthodontist, Dr. Tarek teaches at his residency program part-time.
