Dr. Ghattas was born and raised in Houston, and dentistry fascinated him from a very early age. After graduating from Langham Creek High School, he attended Texas A&M University and received a degree in biomedical science with a minor in business administration.
He then completed dental school at The University of Texas at San Antonio and began his career as a dentist in Kentucky, where he practiced for about one year before realizing there were other more advanced procedures he wished to study and provide patients. With that, he decided to take the final step of his formal training at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, receiving a certificate in Advanced Education in General Dentistry.
Dr. Ghattas still loves to learn and continues to keep up with all the latest information, research, and technology that is available. He dedicates himself to participating in seminars across the country for his own joy and to provide the best care for his patients. He holds memberships in the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, Texas Dental Association, Texas Academy of General Dentistry, and Houston Dental Society.
Besides just learning, Dr. Ghattas loves to teach. One of his favorite parts about being a dentist is the opportunity to take the time to explain things to full clarity for patients. “Being able to tap into my inner teacher and the love of providing quality clinical care is what makes working as a dentist so rewarding for me.” In his free time Dr. Ghattas loves to play basketball, autocross, and travel with his beautiful wife Kristen and two boys, Joshua and Benjamin.
