About Dr. Babak Salahbin
Dr. Babak Salahbin is a homegrown Virginia native. Having grown up in Northern Virginia he attended James Madison University for his undergraduate degree. There, he earned a B.B.A. with a double major in Finance and Computer Information Systems. His love of knowledge later led him to George Mason University where he studied Accounting. After entering the workforce with a business background, Dr. Salahbin felt a large void in his life. He felt the need for a greater calling. With a strong desire to help his fellow man, Dr. Babak Salahbin decided to go back to school where his pursuits led him to Howard University College of Dentistry. There he graduated in the top bracket of his class. Having felt the need to further his dental education, Dr. Salahbin completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry through Lutheran Medical Center’s dental residency program at the Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center on the beautiful island of Oahu, Hawaii. His time spent on Oahu was very gratifying in that he was able to serve the underprivileged natives of the city of Waianae. During this time, he learned to incorporate the “Aloha Spirit” into his lifestyle. Aloha in the Hawaiian language means hello, goodbye, affection, peace, compassion, and mercy. Using the latest technology at Kakar dental group, Dr. Babak Salahbin plans to incorporate the “Aloha Spirit” into his everyday treatment style in order to help bring ease and comfort to his patient pool.
