Dr. Taghreed As-Sanie, DDS

Owner

Dr. Rudi As-Sanie was born and raised a Buckeye in Kent, Ohio. After receiving her undergraduate degree in Biopsychology in 2005 at The Ohio State University, she went on to complete her Doctorate of Dental Surgery at The Ohio State University College of Dentistry in 2009. 

With a passion for learning, she continued her training completing an Advanced Education in General Dentistry degree from the University of Cincinnati in 2010. Since then she has had the privilege of serving patients in private practice. With technology and clinical techniques constantly advancing, Dr. As-Sanie continuously pursues advanced learning opportunities. At her core she believes every patient is important and deserves genuine and personal care. She and her husband, Samer Bazerbashi, live in Gahanna with their three children Mayse, Ameen and Omar. Dr. As-Sanie is a member of The American Dental Association, The Ohio Dental Association, Columbus Dental Society, Seattle Study Club, Spear Study Club, and The Academy of General Dentistry. Dr. Taghreed As-Sanie recognized the need for well-trained, efficient chairside dental assistants and found difficulty in attracting good assistants throughout her years in practice. Columbus Academy of Dental Assisting will help prepare interested persons in becoming part of the dental profession and assuming a position as a well-respected professional.
