Dr. Sonam Shah is originally from Augusta, GA, and her family moved to Fort Mill, SC while she was in college. She attended Emory University, where she majored in Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology. After undergrad, Dr. Shah went on to receive her Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2014.
Dr. Shah realized that working with children, and especially helping those with special needs, was what she enjoyed most, and she decided to become a pediatric dentist. She completed her residency at Louisiana State University in New Orleans in 2016 to gain advanced pediatric training and education, which included training for in-office sedation, operating room cases, and treating children with special needs. She is an active member of the AAPD and the ADA.
In her free time, she enjoys swimming, traveling, and spending time with her family and her puppy dog, Benny.
