Dr. Fawad ShahDr. Shah grew up in Philadelphia and attended Temple University School of Dentistry.  He met his wife in Chicago and practiced there for four years before moving to Arizona.  He enjoys travelling and spending time outdoors with his family.  Dr. Shah enjoys all aspects of dentistry, especially the use of implants and Invisalign clear braces to achieve ideal results.  Dr. Shah believes that all patients should completely understand their options and receive consistently high quality dental care.





Brian Mooney, D.D.S.

Ddrd-mooneyr. Brian Mooney is a native of our community, born and raised near Dobson High School. After completing a Bachelors in Biology and his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree from The University of Colorado, he returned to Phoenix to practice dentistry.

As he is quite passionate about serving his community, Dr. Mooney felt it was important to begin his dental career on the right foot. His first years out of school were spent full time at the homeless shelter in downtown Phoenix. Dr. Mooney often says about his time there, “I’ve just about seen it all” and credits that job for his strengths in emergency treatment, oral surgery, dentures, and most importantly compassion for patients.

Dr. Mooney went on to complete a one year fellowship learning advanced techniques in oral surgery, wisdom teeth, complex root canals, full mouth rehabilitation, CAD/CAM crowns, laser dentistry and dental implants.

Following his fellowship, Dr. Mooney combined his implant training and his denture experience from the shelter with his passion for digital technology. He took a position in Scottsdale doing clinical research and development of the world’s first digitally designed dentures and implant supported dentures like the “All-on-4.” He is part of a small percentage of dentists who have experience with some of the most cutting edge technology in dentistry.

Dr. Mooney believes in a comprehensive approach to oral health, which he reminds patients is the gateway to whole body health. He strives to make sure his patients understand their options and provides what he calls a “lifetime dental plan” to help you meet your goals now and enjoy a lifetime of optimum oral health.

When Dr. Mooney is not busy with dentistry or continuing education, he is usually with his wife and two young children. They enjoy hiking, biking and almost anything outdoors.
