Meet Dr. Shaheda Govani, DDS and her team. In this video, you’ll discover how Govani Dental started, and what makes them different in their personalized and relaxed approach to providing dental care in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
I am Dr. Shaheda Govani and I work at Govani Dental. I opened my practice in 2010. I did a start-up right out of dental school. I got the idea that I wanted to do things differently and offer a really high standard of care in a more relaxed atmosphere. So, I decided to take the leap and do a start-up because I believed in the vision of offering compassionate, ethical, good care, but also providing it in a fun atmosphere.
So, I have a really awesome staff. I am picky about who I hire. I want people to work here that want to be here long-term, and that are looking for more than just a job – not just punching in and punching out – people who want to give it their all and they like what they’re doing and they are feeling passionate about what they’re doing, and we make it fun.
I love educating people, showing them the areas they can work on for brushing and flossing and how they can improve their oral health.
She is very personable with her patients. I think that’s one thing that stands out for a lot of patients. She compares her patients to family members.
My favorite part about working at Govani Dental is the quality of dental health care that we provide to patients.
We are willing to explain and review things so that it is understandable, and that people know their treatment is achievable.
I think the biggest thing I pride myself in, is when patience say either they didn’t know I gave them a shot because I’m telling them a story or they are laughing and they don’t even know what happened. Or, things like when the appointment is done and they say “Oh, that wasn’t so bad, I kind of want to come back and visit.” I like that demeanor. That they feel safe. They think it is almost fun. And, that they look forward or at least they are not afraid to come back. It is a big step for a lot of people.
