Why did you decide to become a prosthodontist?

Doctor Shah and his wife

Dr. Shah was very motivated to become a prosthodontist. He always felt that he wanted to do more for his patients, so when he decided to move to the U.S., he took the opportunity to significantly advance his skillset. While getting his second dental degree, he would often have to refer patients with complex cases out to prosthodontists, and this ignited his curiosity about what they were able to do that he couldn’t. So, he started observing them and became more and more involved in the treatment process. With the guidance and motivation from his faculty mentors, he successfully completed a Prosthodontic Residency enabling him to better serve a wider array of patients.

Where did you study dentistry/ prosthodontics?

After practicing for nearly 10 years, he immigrated to the U.S., where he completed a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the prestigious New York University College of Dentistry. He went on to receive his Prosthodontic training at the same institution right after dental school.

Dr. Shah has taken countless hours of continuing education over the years, including courses focused on sinus lifts, guided implant surgery, and bone grafting from the Versah Academy in Chicago, Hiossen-NJ, and Dental XP. He is also a member of the following professional organizations:

When he isn’t spending time with his wife, Ami, or their daughter, Pushti, Dr. Shah enjoys listening to Indian music, reading poetry, and cooking. He never cooked for the first 32 years of his life, but when he was in New York living by himself, he forced himself to learn, and now he loves it! Be sure to ask him about his latest recipes at your next appointment.
