Meet Dr. Saba Rizvi

Hi there! I’m Dr. Saba Rizvi and I wanted to tell you a bit more about myself!

Outside of dentistry, I am passionate about my family and I enjoy spending quality time with them. I am married to John Rizvi, a well-known Florida patent attorney and Adjunct Professor at Nova Law School, and I am a proud mother of five children. Some of things we do for fun as a family is go kayaking, camping and hiking. My personal interests are reading a wide variety of genres but mainly nonfiction, I enjoy cooking, photography, traveling and exercising. One day I will get back to my passion for art, sketching and painting. Right now I enjoy putting up my children’s art work.

For school, I completed my undergraduate degree at Rutger’s University in New Jersey, followed by my doctor of dental medicine degree at Rutger’s University School of Dental Medicine ( formerly known as University of Medicine & Dentistry of NJ). I elected to do additional training at the Bronx-Lebanon Hospital in New York City. I grew up in New Jersey and moved to Florida in 2000.

As part of my commitment to providing patients with the highest quality of care , I continue my quest for learning. I take over a 200 hundred hours a year of continuing education to stay abreast of new techniques, new materials, and technology in dentistry. My team also also take part in the education to provide an amazing patient experience here at our office where we are truly a family.

I’m dedicated to providing patients with personal, individualized care, working closely with you to ensure you receive the best and most appropriate care for your needs. One of our core values is trust here at My Dentist For Life. I will not start any work until you have a good understanding of what should get done and why through the use of our camera and educational videos. We will also take care of you from array of drinks, to blankets, pillows, large screen TVs, laughing gas and heated towels just to name a few amenities.

Here at My Dentist For Life, we offer a wide variety of treatment options aimed at improving your oral health including dental cleanings, gum infection treatment, same day crowns, onlays and veneers, orthodontic treatment for teens and adults, tooth extractions, dentures, dental implants, root canal treatments, as well as teeth whitening (KOR whitening is our most popular and it has amazing results) and other cosmetic dentistry procedures. We are super hi-tech here with iPads to fill out your forms, 3D printers to make your crown here in the office to a 3-D Xray machine to plan for implants very precisely!

We look forward to taking care of you, your family and friends!
