Meet Dr. Shvan Kareem

A longtime Virginia resident, Dr. Kareem is a Harrisonburg High School and James Madison University alumnus, who earned his DDS at Virginia Commonwealth University’s School of Dentistry.

He then completed a general practice residency at Carilion Clinic in Roanoke, Virginia, where he gained experience in treating special needs patients in an operating room setting while working part-time at a community health center.  Dr. Kareem is excited to return to Harrisonburg so that he can give back to the community in which he grew up.

During his free time, Dr. Kareem enjoys discovering the natural beauty of the Shenandoah Valley with his family and friends, playing competitive sports with his brothers, and staying active with his daughter.  Please help us welcome him to the team and make an appointment to see him soon.

Dear Valued Patients,

We hope you are staying healthy and well during this public health emergency. Our priority, as it has always been, is the continued health and safety of our patients and staff. We will continue implementing the recommendations of the ADA (American Dental Association) and the VDA (Virginia Dental Association) and the CDC regarding COVID 19. To continue to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID 19, we kindly ask that if you have an upcoming dental appointment that you follow these COVID 19 guidelines:

  • Please reschedule your dental appointment should you have any symptoms of COVID 19 (fever, fatigue, dry cough, difficulty breathing, aches & pains, sore throat, loss of sense of smell or taste).
  • Please refrain from bringing additional individuals with you to your appointment.
  • Please wear a mask.
  • Please keep a safe distance from others when possible.

In the interest of patient safety, we would like to share some of our safety measures practiced in our office. N95 Masks, protective face shields, and gloves will continue to be worn by providers.
Daily temperature monitoring of all staff, including our front desk support, assistants, hygienists, and doctors. Every operatory is wiped down with disinfectant between every patient. Door pulls, countertops, front desk, restroom handles and waiting room wiped down frequently with disinfectant. We appreciate and value your continued understanding during this health crisis.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Your Dental Health Associates Team
