Meet Dr. Zahabiyah Tsiamwala
Dr. Zahabiyah Tsiamwala is a New York native, growing up in Queens, NY, and has recently relocated to sunny Florida with her husband. She attended Stony Brook University, where she received a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Sciences. She volunteered weekly at the local dental school. It was here that Dr. Tsiamwala visualized a marriage of her interests in artistry, improving community health outcomes, and making a difference in lives through the field of dentistry. She went on to attend New York University College of Dentistry to obtain her Doctorate in Dental Surgery. During dental school, she actively pursued her interests in endodontics through participation in endodontic research, research presentation at the Association of Endodontics annual meeting, an externship at Columbia University College of Dental Medicine, and global dental outreach initiatives.
Dr. Tsiamwala wanted to further expand her surgical skillset and provide trauma and emergency dental care in a hospital setting. She completed an intensive general practice residency at NY Presbyterian Hospital Queens, a trauma 1 hospital. Dr. Tsiamwala continued her training at Rutgers University obtaining a certificate in endodontics. Here she experienced providing emergency care during the covid pandemic and has first-hand experience as a frontline dentist. Even during a pandemic, patients with facial swelling, trauma, and pulpitis pain needed to be seen for emergency care and her respect for endodontics and her profession continued to blossom.
Dr. Tsiamwala prides herself in a human approach to root canals and dentistry. Patient comfort and understanding of the treatment options and technology available are her highest priority. She is presently on track for board certification. Dr. Tsiamwala is greatly involved with organized dentistry, is part of the American Dental Association, Sarasota County Dental Association, Florida Dental Association, Association of Endodontics and sits on the AAE Resident and New Practitioner committee.
In her spare time, Dr. Tsiamwala enjoys spending time with her husband and son. She enjoys the beautiful Florida beaches, cooking with her husband, traveling, and painting. She is excited to serve Florida residents at Siesta Key Root Canal specialists with compassion and care.
