Dr. Shokofeh Tabaraie and Staff
Dr. Shokofeh Tabaraie (pronounced Show-ko-fay Tab-ah-ray) joined the Greenlake community when she purchased the practice in 2009, 3 years after graduating from the University of Washington dental school in 2006.
A passionate artist and lover of science, she chose dentistry because it combines the two.
Shortly after beginning to practice, she began to realize the profound affect her work has on her patients — health, outlooks and lives truly change when people are no longer fearful of the dentist, are pain-free and confident in their smiles.
At Greenlake Dental Center, patients feel like a trusted friend is taking care of their teeth...
A former Ironman distance triathlete, Dr. Tabaraie still loves to cycle and surf in the summer and snowboard in the winter, but lately more time is spent running after her son (born in 2013) with her husband, Jay.
Mavelin's infectious smile is the first thing you'll notice when you come into (or call) our office.
Graduating from Renton Technical College as a dental assistant in 2008, Mavelin and Dr. Tabaraie have been working together for over 8 years.
After just two years, Mavelin became a highly efficient practice manager and will be able to guide you through all your non-medical questions, such as insurance, scheduling or payment options.
The thing she likes the most about her job is the relationships she builds with her patients.
Outside of work, Mavelin enjoys spending time with her husband, daughter, and dog.
