Dr Afkari graduated from the University of Montreal in 1996. She is a member of the Ordre des dentistes du Quebec and the Association des chirurgiens dentistes du Quebec.

Dr Afkari has practiced at Centre Dentaire Rosemère a few years ago. She comes back after having practiced at her own clinic for more than 17 years. The patients that knew her then are happy to see her again within the team of Centre Dentaire Rosemère. Dr Afkari practices diversified family dentistry. She takes pride in offering you pain free and high-quality treatments. She regularly improves her knowledge by attending continuing education classes and seminars in various dental fields. She’s caring, attentive and friendly. Many patients call her by her first name. She treats you with the same honest and devoted fashion she treats her own family. She gives you the undivided attention and personalized care you expect and deserve. You will quickly trust that you are in good hands.

Dr Issa and Dr Afkari share the same philosophy of practicing dentistry, whether from a technical or treatment planning point of view: a personalized approach with leading-edge technology.

When she is not at the office taking care of her patients, Shadi is at home taking care of her family. She enjoys healthy cooking, and to stay in shape, she practices yoga and enjoys biking and hiking.
