Dr. Apa’s number is on speed dial in the phones of countless celebrities including Catherine Zeta-Jones, Uma Thurman, Huda Kattan, the Olsen twins, and Jessica Kahawaty – but this comes as no surprise. As one of the world’s most in-demand dentists, Dr. Apa is a celebrity in his own right, jetting between New York and Dubai to transform the teeth of and rub shoulders with the A-list elite whilst adding to his ever-growing Ferrari collection. After all, he’s the go-to guy for creating perfect but natural-looking teeth.
Having launched his series on YouTube last year, which followed him as he built and opened his seriously chic clinic in Dubai, Dr. Apa is now back with a new season that promises to be bigger, better, and filled with more beauty than ever before. With celebrity appearances from the likes of Huda Kattan, Dana Wolley, and Nikkie of Youtube channel NikkieTutorials, it’s not to be missed.
Read on for a sneak peek at what you can expect from the second season of Dr Apa as we speak to the man behind the show and get a first look at the teaser trailer, shared exclusively with Savoir Flair.
Where did you get the idea to create your own YouTube series?
We originally wanted to give a behind-the-scenes look into what it took to get the Apa Aesthetic Dental & Cosmetic Centre in Dubai up and running – the travel between New York and Dubai alongside the struggles with building and staffing – and end with the opening of the clinic. As we filmed, it transformed into showing the stories of the people getting the work done as well as the madness around running businesses in two different countries!
How is the second season different from the first?
Season 2 was really prefaced around our one-year anniversary and giving back with a “smile makeover”. We got Huda Kattan on board, with her doing the makeup and us doing the teeth, as well as a partnership with Emirates to be able to open the contest up globally. It was new, challenging, and exciting to be able to do something special like this and capture it all on camera! The transformations were spectacular. We also attracted some big-name personalities who wanted their teeth done and were willing to share the journey on camera, including Nikkie, Mahira Abdel Aziz, Dana Wolley (right before her wedding), and Taim Al Falasi.
Any standout moments you’d like to share?
The makeover is really going to shock people… the personal stories, the time frame we did it in, and the outcome. Wow! Even I was surprised at how us doing a person’s teeth in combination with Huda doing their makeup could completely transform their look and life.
Who haven’t you had on the series yet that you’d love to see at the clinic?
We have some exciting surprises for Season 3 already. The beauty of reality is that you never know what’s coming!
