Meet Doctor Hakim

At Caughlin Ranch Children’s Smiles, Dr. Sara Hakim’s top priority is building trusting relationships with her young patients by treating each like her own child. This ensures each little one feels at home in the dental environment and grows up with a healthy and beautiful smile!

Dr. Sara’s gentle demeanor immediately puts children, even those who are feeling anxious, at ease. This is bolstered by the child-friendly and non-threatening design of her office. Behind the cheery décor, though, the practice is equipped with the latest dental technology, used to deliver state-of-the-art care to infants, children, teens, and youth with special healthcare needs.

By emphasizing preventive care, Dr. Sara helps each patient achieve and keep optimal oral health. She spends time talking with parents and kids about home dental hygiene, nutrition, and how to establish a lifetime of healthy habits. This ensures everyone is equipped with the necessary information and understands why it’s important!

Dr. Sara is an active member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association, Nevada Dental Association, and other professional organizations. Through her memberships, she has access to the latest research, as well as information about advances in techniques and technologies. As a result, all of her patients are provided with the highest quality of pediatric dental treatment available.

Dr. Sara moved to Reno in 2014 with her husband Ali, who is an anesthesiologist and pain specialist. The couple fell in love with the Sierra Nevada Mountains and all the wonderful activities. They decided to expand their family and welcomed their baby girl Ava. They happily decided this would be their forever home.
