Dr. Rasul attended the University of Maryland, College Park, and was a part of the science, technology, and society scholars program at the university, where she graduated in 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in neurobiology and physiology with a minor in English literature. She also graduated from University of Maryland School of Dentistry in 2012 and was inducted into Gamma Pi Delta, a prosthodontic and operative honor society.

While in dental school, she was a research tech and worked with the head of the endodontic department focusing on vertical root fracture diagnosis. During her final year, Afia was selected for the implant prosthodontics fellowship program to focus on implant restoration. She is a member of the American Dental Association, Virginia Dental Association, and the Richmond Dental Society.

Dr. Nick Yesbeck

Our in-house periodontist, Dr. Nicholas Yesbeck is a lifelong Richmonder. He grew up in Midlothian and attended Virginia Commonwealth University for 11 years, where he received his undergraduate degree, DDS degree, and specialty certificate in periodontics with a Master of Science in Dentistry. His training was concentrated on treating periodontal disease, gum grafting, bone grafting, dental implants, and moderate sedation.

He is a member of the American Academy of Periodontology, the American Dental Association, the Virginia Dental Association, and the Richmond Dental Society. He also gives back to the community through local Mission of Mercy projects in Virginia.

After completing dental school Dr. Shafiq stayed in New York where he continued to work and complete his General Practice Residency at Maimonides Medical Center.

Working in such a large city allowed him to gain experience treating a variety of patients with a multitude of complex treatment needs.
