About Your Dentist

Monica Ghattas, DMD

"You don't need to brush all of your teeth, just the teeth you wish to keep!"

My Mission

"Hey Doc, I just think you should know I hate dentists!"  These are the first words I hear from many patients and it is my mission to change the way they perceive dentists and dental care. We aren't scary ghouls that gleefully pull teeth without anesthesia. The times have changed, the methods have improved significantly, and patients have realized that the mouth is the gateway to the body and overall systemic health. I'm here to provide patients with a comfortable, relaxed environment to ease them into their dental care and work together to provide the best treatment plans for their individual needs.

Life & Hobbies

In my free time, I enjoy going to the beach, kayaking, and relaxing with a good cup of coffee. I am very interested in the makeup industry and love the attention to detail that a good makeup artist uses.

I am passionate about helping those who are not able to help themselves. My goal is to provide dental care to everyone, not just those who can afford it. I volunteer at free dental clinics when I can and I'm always looking for new opportunities to serve my community.
