The American Dental Association (ADA) has asked dentists to defer all elective treatment at this time, and only provide emergency services. This is to help preserve protective equipment (masks, gowns, gloves, etc.) for hospitals and urgent care centers as well as limit the spread of the virus. We are keeping a limited number of locations open to provide emergency dental services, to both help you and reduce the traffic to Emergency Rooms (ERs) and urgent care centers so that they can focus on non-dental emergencies. If you are in pain and need emergency dental treatment, please call (702) 744-8009 and we can assist you right away.

Dr. Caroline Basta, dentist at Absolute Dental

Caroline Basta

D.M.D.

"I had a wonderful but yet challenging journey to be able to practice dentistry in the United States. Being an international full-time student, a Mom and a wife were not easy. I graduated from Dental school back in 2010 from my country "Egypt". I have a passion to help others and I love the communication between doctors and their patients and how we can impact other people's lives. My dream was to improve myself as a dentist and to learn more about advanced techniques and comprehensive care by continuing my education here in the United States and earn my DDS degree.

With the help of family, friends and my amazing mentors I was able to achieve my dream and become the dentist I always wanted to be. I just graduated in May 2019 from UNLV School of Dental Medicine's International Program with a D.D.S. degree. I'm so excited to join Absolute Dental as a General Dentist. I'm looking forward to meeting other amazing dentists and wonderful staff and establish strong relationships both professionally and personally. On the other hand, I like reading and traveling. I also cook good Egyptian food! I have been married to my amazing husband for 5 years and we have 3 years old boy who keeps me busy all the time."
