Dr. Peter Abas
After over a decade of practice in Orange County, I am so pleased to be at my own practice in Laguna Hills. I was born in Pennsylvania, but moved to Southern California when I was three (practically a native). I grew up in the Inland Empire and went to Redlands High School. Immediately following high school I started my dental training at UC Berkeley where I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Molecular and Cell Biology. I was blessed to have attended the prestigious University of the Pacific, School of Dentistry where I earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS). I wrapped up at the University of Southern California (USC) and earned a certificate in Advanced Education in General Dentistry. While at USC I had the opportunity to treat a variety of complex cases including full mouth rehabilitation, cosmetic cases, extensive dental implant cases, as well as treating special needs patients.
DR. ROBERT SHAROBIEM
An Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon
Since he began practicing oral surgery in 2009, Dr. Sharobiem has restored hundreds of patients’ smiles. He’s so popular with his patients that they chose him for the Vitals Patients’ Choice Award in 2015, an honor for dentists with the highest patient ratings.
Dr. Sharobiem completed his Doctorate in Dental Surgery at UCLA in 2009, graduating in the top five percent of his class. From there, he earned a General Dental Practice Residency Certificate at St. Barnabas Hospital, where he was named Resident of the Year in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. He completed his Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Certificate at Mount Sinai Hospital, receiving advanced training in facial trauma, oral surgery, reconstruction, and more.
For Dr. Sharobiem, giving back to the community is extremely important. That’s why he’s participated in dental mission trips to help impoverished people in Mexico, Haiti, and Guatemala. This level of generosity is why the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons honored Dr. Sharobiem with the Humanitarian Award for Residents in 2013.
When he’s not helping patients, Dr. Sharobiem likes to stay active by traveling and playing sports. He’s an avid LA Dodgers fan, as well as a self-described “foodie” who loves to try new restaurants. He also enjoys reading, crosswords, and Ken-Ken puzzles.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I have known Dr. Abas for over 10 years and I am excited to be able to work at his practice here in Laguna Hills. I earned my hygiene degree from Cerritos College in 2002 after finishing a BA at Cal State Long Beach. My husband and I enjoy taking our golden retriever to visit our parents every week so they can spend time with their “grandchild.” I love to read in every spare moment I can find and always carry a book with me. My husband and I love to try new restaurants when my husband isn’t trying a new recipe himself. I look forward to meeting you and helping make those pearly whites sparkle!
I have been in the dental field since January 2010. I am very excited to be a part of such a caring dental office. When I am away from our office I enjoy cooking, baking, spending time with my family, and taking my dog (Layla) on new adventures. I look forward to meeting you to deliver excellent quality dentistry in a clean and comfortable environment!
I’ve never been happier at an office in all of the 17 years I’ve been in dentistry. I can’t say enough about being a part of this awesome team. I love spending quality time with my husband, our four children, and 2 dogs. Family movie nights and date nights are just two of my favorite ways to spend my time. I look forward to greeting you with a warm welcome when you visit our office!
