Dr. Saba Heday

“Seeing patients smile confidently is what drives me. I don’t try to fit you into a mold, I create a customized mold for you.” –Dr. Heday


Dr. Saba Heday, an Arizona native, takes pride in caring for the dental needs of her community.  She has been practicing in the valley since 2012. 

Dr. Heday takes a minimalistic approach to solving difficult problems, a skill she cultivated while earning her Bachelor of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering (BSEE). Dr. Heday knew she wanted to be a dentist since she was 9 years old. However, her love of mathematics drew her to pursue engineering first.  She received her BSEE from Arizona State University with honors in 2004, where she studied quantum mechanics and early quantum computers.  She then went on to receive her Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering from Arizona State University, her research focusing on computational methods to study the immune system. 

Dr. Heday then obtained her Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from the University of California in San Francisco, one of the most esteemed research facilities in the country, where she researched the effects of laser treatment on tooth bonding. She subsequently completed her General Practice Residency at San Diego VA Medical Center, where she managed patients with complex medical conditions and gained a deep appreciation of the sacrifice our veterans make to keep our country safe. 

Dr. Heday believes in constant learning. She keeps herself informed of new research and technology to provide the most effective conservative treatment for her patients. She is a member of Arizona Dental Association and American Dental Association. She is a designated Sleep Oral Appliance Provider through her mastery training and membership with American Academy of Sleep Dental Medicine.  Dr. Heday loves creating confident natural smiles for her patients and works closely with some of the best ceramists and oral surgeons in town to obtain the best results.

When she’s not providing exceptional dentistry to her community, Dr. Heday enjoys dabbling in the arts. Whenever she has a pen and paper on hand, she can be found drawing or writing, and she also loves painting and photographing her family and the stunning Arizona landscape. Along with her husband and two children, Dr. Heday enjoys exploring the great outdoors by camping, hiking, and traveling. Her family also enjoys playing with their beloved pug Hamlet.

Office Manager

Marie Baumgartner

Office Manager

Marie moved to Arizona from Connecticut in 2005 to escape the long harsh winters and the very tough allergens that come with the immense greenery in New England.  Allergies are not her friend and moving out here to the dry weather has been the cure for cure for sure.  Connecticut is where she started her career in the dental field and loved it so much that she vested 39 years of her life to changing patient's lives with bringing them a confident and beautiful smile.  She has learned that a confident smile can change a person’s entire wellbeing and self-esteem. Knowing that she is a part of that process is why she loves what she does and she wants to be a part of your personal experience at Dynamite Smiles Dentistry!

She joined Dr. Heday knowing the knowledge, experience and compassion that she brings with her to the practice. In Marie’s own words, “I am truly honored to be a part of her team and I want to bring my knowledge, experience and compassion to you, as well.  Working at Dynamite Smiles Dentistry, I love the organic feel that Dr. Heday brings to the practice in her style and calm nature that makes our patient's feel so at home.” 

In her time away from the office, she enjoys being with her family and spending quality time with them at home playing board games, watching a good movie or just having good conversation just to be together. Family is the most important possession that one holds dear and having you be part of our "dental family" is what is most important to her, as well!!

Marie has been a crucial part of creating the Dynamite Smiles Dentistry’s systems that allow for smooth, organized, and effortless patient care starting from your intake process to organizing and reviewing your treatment plans.
