About Dr. Bahar Nia

As the Founder and Clinical Director of Buckhead Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, Dr. Nia is not new to the field. In fact, as a second-generation cosmetic dentist in Atlanta, she grew up watching her father work at his own dental practice. After graduating from her prestigious Ivy League education at The University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, she decided to further her education by attending a postdoctoral residency in Houston. This gave Dr. Nia the opportunity to collaborate with the MD Anderson Cancer Center where she became more well-rounded in the diagnosis of oral, head, and neck oncology. Her philosophy of patient care is a wholesome approach to both diagnosis and treatment. Dr. Nia provides aesthetically beautiful smile makeovers with a sense of perfectionism and great attention to detail.


She is married to her husband, a fellow dentist, and a classmate from college. They have two little girls, Lily and Leah, and a teacup Yorkie, Lulu. Dr. Nia enjoys spending time with her friends and family and traveling to learn more about other cultures. She prides herself in teaching her children respect, inclusivity, and diversity outside of their Persian background.
