Gainesville Orthodontist - Randa Shakashiro, D.M.D.

Meet Dr. Shakashiro

Dr. Randa Shakashiro earned her Doctor of Medical Dentistry degree from Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine in 2005.

Her love of orthodontics did not fade after practicing general dentistry for six years in Northern Virginia. She went back to school and attended Howard University, College of Dentistry in Washington, D.C. to achieve her dream of becoming an orthodontist and earned her specialty degree.

Dr. Shak's philosophy in practicing orthodontics is simply that the patient always comes first. She brings along her kind and pleasant personality in addition to a sound foundation in the most recent technology and developments in orthodontics. This unique combination has enabled her to meet and exceed the expectations of her patients, achieving impressive outcomes in an enjoyable and relaxed atmosphere.

Dr. Shak is also famed for her sincerity and the amount of time she dedicates to every patient appointment. In her effort to maintain patient-centered care, she refuses to delegate most patient care tasks to dental assistants or auxiliaries, a rarity in today’s orthodontic offices.

Outside the Office

Dr. Shak has been married to her college sweetheart, Dr. Najib Adi, since 1998. They reside in Victory Lakes of Bristow, VA. Dr. Shak enjoys spending time with her husband and their two kids.

"I can't say enough good things about Doctors Adi and Shakashiro!  They are both excellent at everything they do and very gentle in their work.  Dr. Shakashiro went out of her way to accommodate our schedule when putting on our son's braces.  Highly recommend!"



"There isn't one complaint I could possibly make about this dental office. I moved to the office after having a difficult time at my former dentist. I'm so glad I made this move! Dr. Sannaa does an amazing job. On my first visit i was told i had a cavity, i have only had one cavity in my life and it had been filled 3 months prior. This new cavity was underneath the filling i had received. I was able to come back the next day to have it fixed. The hygienist Kim, is wonderful as well. She does a very thorough job cleaning my teeth and always makes recommendations on brushing and flossing. I now see Dr. Shakashiro for braces as well. I've had many consultations but they've been way out of my price range. Dr. Shakashiro quoted me a very reasonable price and the work I have received has been phenomenal. All positive thoughts from me."



"The warmth and friendliness is evident from the moment you walk into Atlas Walk Dental. Both Dr. Adi and Dr. Shakashiro are very caring and attentive and my comfort seemed to be their number one priority. They took time to do a thorough job to correct my previous dentist's faulty dental work. Their state of the art equipment allows me to see the before and after progress as they are working, which I think is tremendously helpful to understand the process. I would definitely recommend Atlas Walk Dental, especially for those who had put off going to the dentist as I have."



"Atlas Walk Dental is amazing! Dr. Shakashiro and the entire staff are a wonderful, caring and very professional team . She did a great job with my son's braces. She is a loving mom so there is no need to worry when your child's dental health is in her hands. I always felt as though she treated my son as if he was her son. I can't thank them enough for the excellent care they all provided to my son."



"Atlas Walk is awesome! I always have a pleasant experience at every appointment. The staff is always so friendly and provides great customer service. I see Dr. Shakashiro and she is amazing! Kimberlee is an awesome hygienist. She makes you feel comfortable."
