"Since the age of 5, I wanted to be a doctor and help people. In college, I had two best friends who wanted to go to dental school, so I started volunteering for my dentist at the time and became very interested in the field of endodontics. This led me to start applying to dental school in hopes of becoming an endodontist.”
Dr. Shambayati completed her undergraduate education at George Mason University, and then she earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Case Western Reserve University. She continued her education at Stony Brook University and obtained a certificate in Advanced Education in General Dentistry. She went on to complete a 2-year post-graduate program in endodontics at Stony Brook University and received her certificate in 2003.
