I have been in the dental field since 1998. I grew up in the Boston area but love it here in California. During my free time I enjoy going to the beach with my friends, trying out new restaurants, and experiencing difference types of foods. I have two nieces who live in Boston, one is two and the other is five; I try to visit them as much as possible. I love being an auntie. Hopefully they will be visiting me soon so I can take them to Disneyland for their first time. I look forward to meeting you having the opportunity to provide you with exceptional care!
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!
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.
