Dr. Shahin Issac Bina
Dr. Shahin Bina majored in biochemistry during his undergraduate studies, researching in surgery (kidney transplants) at SUNY Health Care Center, Department of Surgery, and researching in Dentistry at the Department of Oral Biology and Pathology. Dr. Bina attended dental school in Stony Brook, NY, and graduated in 1994. During college, he was a recipient of the President’s Undergraduate Excellence Award from the university’s president.
Dr. Bina has received advanced training through his General Practice Residency at New York Hospital, which is affiliated with Cornell University, and has served as a member of the faculty for Comprehensive Care and Applied Practice Administration at the NYU School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Bina continues to advance his education each year, taking courses beyond what is required by the state in order to stay at the forefront of dentistry. He is currently setting up continuing education courses to instruct other dentists on oral surgery and implant restorations.
Dr. practiced for 16 years in southern California, performing surgical procedures, implant dentistry and root canals for over 30 offices in Los Angeles. He has practiced in his current location for five years. His extensive experience has given him unique training and perspective, and enables him to see each case through the eyes of four different fields of dental specialty. As a result, he has been able to help dentists find better diagnoses of dental issues, and is often the person that other dental professionals call to consult.
He is a member of several professional organizations, including:
- American Dental Association
- Los Angeles Dental Society
- Academy of General Dentistry (Fellow)
- International Congress of Oral Implantologists (Fellow)
Dr. Bina is a third-generation dentist. As a dentist, he wants to follow in the footsteps of his father and grandfather and be not only his patients’ dentist, but also their friend. Dr. Bina’s grandfather was a physician of the Royal Family in Iran, and had a hospital named after him by King Reza Pahlavi for his services.
Dr. Bina’s goal is to provide the best possible diagnosis and treatment and to ensure that his patients receive the highest quality of care. He seeks to provide alternative treatment modalities and challenges himself by thinking outside the box. He finds it immensely satisfying to develop treatment plans for his patients that no other dentist can provide, and wants to increase public awareness about issues related to dentistry.
Dr. Bina and his wife have two children. Their daughter is a freshman at Syracuse University, majoring in Communications, and their son is a sophomore in high school (and may want to become a dentist, too!). Dr. Bina’s wife is his office manager. Dr. Bina’s hobbies include skiing and riding his motorcycle, and he is considering trying gliding sometime soon!
