Dr. Christina Yasi Sabour was born and raised in Dallas. She earned her BA in biology from The University of Texas at Austin and her DDS at the Health Science Center in San Antonio. After graduation, she was accepted into the general practice residency program at Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx, which fulfilled a dream for her of living in New York City. There she was exposed to a diverse patient base and was able to refine her clinical skills in several aspects of dentistry, especially cosmetic dentistry. After residency and some time in private practice in New York, she moved back to Texas in order to be closer to family.
When asked what motivates her to come to work each day, she answered: “I believe that work in the spirit of helping others is food for our souls and keeps our spirits healthy and happy.”
As a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, she is particularly interested in the relationship between aesthetics and function. She enjoys studying occlusion, and takes continuing education courses out of the Kois Academy in Seattle. When she is not at work, she enjoys spending time with her husband and maintains an active lifestyle of gardening, rock climbing, cycling, cooking, and yoga—she even used to teach it!
