Dr. Peter Abas
I have been in private practice in Orange County for nearly two decades. 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, and extensive dental implant cases, as well as treating special needs patients.
I have treated thousands of patients since starting in private practice in 2006. One of the procedures that I am most proud of is our ability to make a custom, precision-fit porcelain crown in about 2 hours. Long gone are the days of temporary crowns, gag-inducing impression (mold) materials, or second visits for your crown!
I currently reside in South Orange County with my family. My wife Mary and I were married in 2008 and have 2 children. Hannah is 12 years old and Luke is 8 years old. During my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family traveling, trying new restaurants in the area, and also visiting our local theme parks, which is something the children love! Little do they know that I love it just as much as they do!
I look forward to meeting you. I strive to provide excellent quality dentistry in a comfortable and clean environment!
Dr. Nika Darabi
I completed my undergraduate dental education at the renowned Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. Later, I pursued specialty training in periodontology at Boston University’s Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine. I am proficient in various periodontal procedures, including resective and regenerative surgeries, tissue grafting, implant placement, extractions, ridge preservation, gingivectomies, and crown lengthening. After completing my training, I returned to Los Angeles to be close to my family.
In my free time, I enjoy traveling, exploring the world, exercising, and spending time with family and friends.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I have known Dr. Abas for over 17 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 my BA from Cal State Long Beach. I spend my free time with my golden retriever, who keeps me laughing. I enjoy traveling whenever possible, hopefully to someplace new. I love to read whenever I have a spare moment and always have a book with me. I look forward to meeting you and helping you keep those pearly whites sparkling!
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 Harley on new adventures. I look forward to meeting you to deliver excellent quality dentistry in a clean and comfortable environment!
I love working in the dental field. I’m very fortunate to be working with such an amazing staff and Doctor. In my spare time I enjoy playing with my puppies and binge watching Netflix.
I’m excited to get to know you all and your families.
