Dr. Saba 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.
