Dr. Zelby and staff.

Shiva Talebi, DMDBoth a dentist and architect, Dr. Shiva Talebi brings this unique combination of skills to our office. After completing a B.S. in Architecture from Georgia Tech in 2011, Dr. Talebi began her career designing dental and medical offices. She was immediately drawn to the rewarding aspects of hands-on dentistry and direct patient care. Working with various dentists and seeing how they interacted with patients made her realize dentistry could be a life-affirming profession. Highly motived to provide dental care, she earned a D.M.D. from the Dental College of Georgia.

Dr. Talebi focuses her holistic practice on total wellness dental care, connecting oral health to overall health. Her personalized approach expands beyond basic services. She interviews each patient concerning their habits and lifestyle to understand their specific needs concerning their oral health. She offers various dental solutions to issues like sleep apnea, acid reflux, and soft tissue pain. Her patients can look forward to a treatment plan that will significantly improve their quality of life and smile aspirations. From cosmetic dentistry, dental crowns, fillings, teeth whitening, and a comprehensive dental hygiene plan, Dr. Talebi makes sure her patients are on the path to a healthy smile.

Realizing that dental anxiety and fear of judgment are obstacles when making an appointment to visit your dentist, Dr. Talebi says, “I have noticed that many patients who usually experience dental anxiety say that I have a calming effect on them.” She enjoys taking care of her patients who have had bad dental experiences. She understands the fear and offers compassionate, empathetic care during all procedures. Dr. Talebi is thrilled to hear at the end of the treatment, “Wow, the shot didn’t even hurt” or “This is the first time I learned what’s going on in my mouth.”

Dedicated to her profession, Dr. Talebi continues to enhance her patients’ treatment utilizing modern bio-neutral and minimally invasive solutions. She applies published, peer-reviewed modalities in her dental care. Staying current with dental technology and continued education keep her at the top of the dental field. “My patients need the best dentistry has to offer. I am an enthusiastic learner and enjoy explaining to my patient what is current in dentistry and what will benefit their ability to smile with confidence,” says Dr. Talebi.

After hours she keeps an active and healthy lifestyle involving cooking, yoga, and gardening. She enjoys hiking, oil painting, and doing DIY home remodeling projects. She is an avid traveler and enjoys immersing herself in the culture and customs of the countries she visits. Solo backpacking has been her way of discovering the world. She has been to more than 20 countries on trips to Asia, Europe, and South America. “Traveling has been one of my biggest teaching tools; I have gained valuable perspective towards life, and its direct effect in my professional and personal life.”

She contributes her skills in dentistry by volunteering at the Ben Massell Dental Clinic in midtown each month. The dental clinic serves the underprivileged in the Atlanta Community.

Dr. Shiva Talebi is very excited to join the professional team of Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta. Dr. David Zelby, the founder of Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta, is pleased that Dr. Talebi chose our dental practice to continue her dental career. “She makes an excellent addition to our team, and I appreciate her relationship skills with our patients and the quality of her dentistry.” She brings enthusiasm and eagerness to her skills and has an instant connection with her patients.

I was recommended this practice from another dentist who told me this is where she would send her own family. I can definitely see why. This is a state of the art practice that is clean, modern, and well lit. The staff did a superb job.

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.

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.

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!
