Holistic wellness within  a unique concept

While it is relatively easy to find a medical or aesthetic center for one’s specific need, it is not common to find a spa, a dental clinic and aesthetic center in one place.

Yet that is precisely what the young Dr. Shideh Nikbin conceptualized as soon as she was able to start her work in the country.

The half-Filipino, half-Persian dentist first visited the Philippines at age 15.

As a teenager, she always felt overshadowed by the reputation of her parents who were both medical doctors.

Because she felt a connection to the place, she envisioned her own business in the Philippines where she could discover more about herself, make a difference in others’ lives and proudly say, “I created this.”

She never let go of that vision. At 21, Dr. Nikbin holds a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the Centro Escolar University and a second Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the Shahid Beheshti University, Iran. She practiced at her family-owned DRS Nikbin Hospital, and continued her three-year residency in orthodontics at the University of the Philippines where she gained extensive clinical experience as an orthodontic specialist for children and adults. Dr. Shideh also earned her diploma of Aesthetic Medicine from Malaysia.

Starting out was incredibly challenging for the new doctor in a foreign land. She found herself in a new place without much familiarity with the system, away from her parents and with people not taking her seriously because she was then in her early 20s.

However, she persevered and came up with the idea of a dental clinic specializing in orthodontics, surgery and cosmetics. Add to that, she introduced a unique concept to the Philippines — an amalgamation of a Persian spa and an aesthetic center. This combination generated quite a buzz, as it was the first time people saw a specialized dental clinic and Middle Eastern spa rolled into one.

Dr. Shideh, Chief Marketing officer and founder of Fashion Smile Dental Health Spa, Aramesh Wellness and Aramesh Aesthetic assures that her business provides a holistic experience.

Dr. Shideh and her partner Dr. Far Nikbin strongly believe that oral health is closely linked to overall well-being. Aramesh Wellness offers unique spa services infused with ancient Middle Eastern techniques known for their relaxing and health benefits. Aramesh Aesthetic services complement Fashion Smile’s dental care, offering treatments such as fillers, lasers, threading and Botox to enhance overall beauty.

Dr. Shideh is the visionary behind the businesses, so she works closely with the creative and marketing team. Additionally, as she specializes in orthodontics, she provides care for patients who need correction for their jaw and teeth misalignment.

Her vision is to expand her businesses’ presence across multiple cities, ensuring easy accessibility for her patients and clients. She wants to continue growing by investing in state-of-the-art facilities and leveraging the latest technology so they can offer exceptional, top-of-the-line services to patients.

“Our ultimate goal is to become the leading provider of exceptional dental services. Additionally, we aspire to create more opportunities for dental graduates and individuals to pursue their passion and work in their chosen field,” says Dr. Shideh.

“Our business is not merely a job to me, but rather a canvas on which I can paint my creations. It is a place where I find excitement in helping others, generating new ideas and contributing to the business’ marketing efforts,” shares Dr. Shideh.
