Dr. Shima Ghattan is a Greensboro native. When she was in 4th grade she started feeling she wanted to be a dentist when she grew up, but later when she started volunteering at the NC Mission of Mercy dental clinics across North Carolina, she knew dentistry was her calling. She went on to join the Wolfpack at North Carolina State earning degrees in Biologic Sciences, Human Biology and Nutrition Science with minors in Health, Medicine and Human Values.
After graduating NC State, she went on to A.T. Still University – Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health to realize her dream of becoming a dentist. Armed with her Doctor of Dental Medicine, she decided she wanted to work with kids. Dr. Ghattan loves helping kids relax and make their trip to the dentist fun with her goofball attitude.
Dr. Ghattan is a member of the American Dental Association, North Carolina Dental Society, and Delta Omega-Delta Gamma (Public Health Honorary Society).
When she is away from the office she is an avid Wolfpack fan, enjoys traveling the globe and hiking the great trails of North Carolina. She is also an accomplished artist.
