she received her letter of acceptance from the University of Maryland- College Park. Shila had always known, even as a young girl in Iran, that she wanted to be a dentist. With her goal in mind, she declared herself as a biochemistry major at UMCP and maintained an outstanding GPA which allowed her to enter dental school at the age of 20. She applied to Howard University’s Dental School program where she was accepted without a bachelor’s degree. She excelled at Howard University as well and was able to graduate with a DDS at the young age of 24, then applying to a highly competitive dental implantology program which thousands applied - but only two students were accepted. Shila was one of those two students. After the completion of her implant residency she opened up her own practice in Washington, DC at the age of 25. Shila soon became interested in neuromuscular dentistry and became a student at the Las Vegas Institute (LVI), a prestigious academy for dentists looking to advance their knowledge in the latest research and findings. She attended many courses at LVI which included advanced techniques and training in smile rejuvenation and neuromuscular dentistry which focuses on balancing the functions of the teeth, jaw joint and muscles of the head and neck. She has been able to help many of her patients overcome years of pain caused by migraine headaches and TMJ disorders. She holds weekly seminars in her office and also gives lectures to fellow dentists and other health care providers at conferences. In November 2007, she opened up her second practice located at 3301 New Mexico Ave in Washington, DC which houses some of the most high-tech instruments used in dentistry today. She has been featured in many news programs and magazines and has been named one of DC’s top dentists.
