Nadia Abbassi, DMD

Dental College of Georgia

Dr. Nadia Esfandiari Abbassi

 “Providing my patients with a beautiful and healthy smile is the most rewarding part of my job. It brings me much joy and happiness.”

Dr. Nadia (as she affectionately is called) joined the practice of Dr. David Zelby, Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta, in November 2022.  She brings twelve years of dental experience, eight of those years in a highly respected cosmetic dentistry practice located in Atlanta.  Her cosmetic dentistry skills and gentle, caring nature make her a star in helping our patients achieve their smile goals.

Dr. Nadia believes a healthy mouth is a cornerstone to a beautiful smile, and each patient has individual needs and should be treated uniquely. Having an artistic mindset, she utilizes creativity and her passion for the arts to add an extra touch of passion and artistry to her dental work. Her constant commitment to providing the best patient satisfaction is key to her strong patient-doctor relationships. She is determined to give her patients the smile they’ve always desired.

Dr. Nadia Esfandiari Abbassi was born and raised in Tallahassee, Florida. At 13, she moved to Atlanta (Sandy Springs) with her family. Dr. Nadia received her bachelor’s degree from Georgia State University and her Doctorate in Dental Medicine from the Dental College of Georgia. Following graduation, she completed a Post-Doctorate Esthetic Fellowship with the world-renowned Dr. Ronald Goldstein in Atlanta, which was an opportunity of a lifetime as never before offered to any other Dentist.  She spent a year working closely with Dr. Goldstein on many large full-mouth rehab & cosmetic cases. Dr. Nadia was also a significant contributor in Dr. Ronald Goldstein’s book, “Esthetics in Dentistry” third edition.

Upon completing her esthetics fellowship under Dr. Goldstein, she was offered a full-time position as an associate dentist at Goldstein Garber & Salama, where she continued her passion for caring for her patients for over eight years. Today, she continues that passion as a family and cosmetic dentist at Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta. With over 12 years of experience, Dr. Nadia brings passion, artistry, and commitment to her patients in the Atlanta area.

Dr. Nadia has taken numerous courses covering all aspects of dentistry. She has thoroughly enjoyed and built her dental practice as a cosmetic and restorative practice treating patients.  In addition, cosmetic dentistry has been very enjoyable and personally rewarding, as she has developed a very successful and highly respected cosmetic practice within her dental practice.

Dr. Nadia believes that education should not end with her receiving a doctorate. She is committed to staying current with the latest technologies and advances in dentistry by attending many continuing education courses and workshops. She continues her passion for dentistry by writing dental articles in her spare time. Her first article, “Effective Measurements for Predictable Esthetic Success,” was published in Dentistry Today (The nation’s leading clinical news magazine for Dentists) in November 2017, where she was featured as a leading clinician on the cover of the magazine. Dr. Nadia was also named a contributing writer at large for Dr. Ronald Goldstein’s dental textbook titled Esthetics in Dentistry, 3rd Edition.

When not serving her patients, Dr. Nadia enjoys time with her husband, Amir and their two sons. Their wedding was featured on the cover of the Southern Season Magazine in the Fall of 2016. Dr. Nadia speaks Farsi and enjoys cooking, traveling, swimming, painting, and spending time with her family and friends.

Aesthetic and Implant Dentistry of Atlanta

4.9 / 5

Based on 136 reviews

Dr. Zelby was recommended to me by both my dentist and periodontist. I could not agree more. the kindness, caring, and professionalism that I experienced at Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta is above and beyond. I highly recommend Dr. Zelby, his assistants, and the staff. I couldn't be happier with my new teeth and wish I had done this years ago! five stars to you guys

Catherine W.

Everything about my experience was enjoyable. I felt like the practice used all of the most advanced and best technology out there which gave me a wonderful feeling of confidence. They were very professional and straight forward and I have never had a better dentistry experience. I'd highly recommend checking them out if you're looking for a new dentist. They're friendly and efficient and they really do know what they're doing there.

Meghan D.

Dr Zelby has been my dentist now for almost 17 years. Not only is he a really nice person, his dentistry is completely top notch. If you need any restorations, I don't think that there is another place to even consider. You'll be amazed with his work!

Brian S.

Dr. Levine was great, and Dr. Zelby stopped by and answered some questions I had about sheering forces on enamel. They were both very friendly, and the hygenist (whose name I forget, unfortunately) gave one of the most thorough cleanings I've ever had. The office was clean, the devices all seem shiny and well maintained, and overall it was a great experience

Benjamin S.

After going to another dentist, doctor Zelby was able to fix my front two teeth so that the front two teeth were back to the same length and color. I'm so thankful he was able to make them look normal again. Dr. Zelby and his staff are so pleasant to be around as well. I highly recommend this office if you have a major problem with your teeth that need to be fixed. He can get it done and he will make sure you are happy.

Carrie G.

I had been going to the same dentist for many years and switched to Aesthetic and Implant recently. My experience with Dr Levine was incredible. I cannot be happier with the decision I made. The cleaning and other services I received were well above and beyond any other I have ever had. Highly recommend this practice to everyone!

Matthew G.

Couldn't be happier! Absolutely worth the travel time. Dr Zelby is without doubt the best - caring, knowledgeable, reassuring and very professional. Couldn't ask for better dentistry. Staff also very competent and professional. Beautiful, clean environment

Diane W.

Megan is the best dental hygienist I’ve ever had. She does a phenomenal job keeping your teeth clean, is super nice, and makes you feel right at home. The whole staff is very friendly and I couldn’t recommend this place enough!
