Meet Dr. Donya Mahdavi

2th Dentistry was born out of Dr. Donya Mahdavi’s vision to transform the public perception of a dental visit. Aiming to enhance the traditional often unpleasant dental experience.

Dr. Donya Mahdavi was born in Iran and moved to Vancouver, British Columbia when she was eight years old. From childhood Dr. Donya Mahdavi has been captivated by art and science, fueling her passion for dentistry. Following the completion of her Bachelor of Psychology at the University of British Columbia (UBC), she pursued dentistry at the renowned NYU College of Dentistry, earning her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree.

Dr. Donya Mahdavi has advanced training in handling phobias, as she is certified in the Assessment and Treatment of Anxiety in the primary care setting from Harvard Medical School (HMS).

After years of experience working in a Vancouver group practice, Dr. Donya Mahdavi envisioned a unique approach – an elevated, sustainable dental experience where each detail of a patient’s visit is thoughtfully considered. Through her deliberate and considerate approach she aids patients in achieving their oral health objectives with diminished stress, pressure, and anxiety.

The path to dentistry had its share of challenges for Dr. Donya Mahdavi. At 2th Dentistry we believe in second chances. Here’s Dr. Donya Mahdavi’s story of how she got her second chance leading to the inception of 2th Dentistry.

During what should have been the most thrilling and rewarding part of Dr. Donya Mahdavi’s life – graduating from university and embarking on a new career- her life was suddenly put on hold. Over the subsequent two years, she not only battled but conquered cancer. Dr. Donya Mahdavi utilized her recovery period to focus all of her efforts on the passion and commitment to her profession, returning back to school to acquire advanced training in digital smile and cosmetic procedures.

This challenging period fueled Dr. Donya Mahdavi’s objective to deliver superior high-quality dental care that extends beyond the teeth and gums. This is achieved through targeted dental phobia training for those in need, and additional screening to detect potential diseases.

Recognizing the necessity for these elements in a single practice, Dr. Donya Mahdavi embarked on her journey to open a practice that places emphasis on:

– Providing premium, high quality oral health.
– Specialty support and care to individuals who have fear and anxiety around dental visits.
– Care beyond the tooth and gums offering head and neck as well as oral cancer screenings
