Mena Sahar, BS, DA

Mena began her healthcare career working for several years as a Dental Assistant. Gaining exposure into the dental field as an assistant allowed for her to realize that her greater passion and interests were in the business side of healthcare. Mena's passion for the administrative side of healthcare was a main reason for her to go to school for health science where she chose to focus on the administrative side of healthcare.
