Meet Dr. Jiger Shah

Dr. Jiger Shah

Born in Toronto, Dr. Jiger Shah was raised in Columbus, Ohio. It was there that he became a diehard Buckeye fan (Go Bucks!).  Dr. Shah attended The Ohio State University where his curiosity for dentistry grew.  He immersed himself in the dental community at Ohio State, which led to a passion for the profession. While there, he met his wife, Pinal, who is also in the healthcare profession.  Dr. Shah received his Bachelor’s degree from tOSU in 1998.  

In 2002, Dr. Shah earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Michigan. Immediately after graduation his wife brought him to the Triangle to further her studies. The couple fell in love with the area and decided to make North Carolina their home.  Dr. Shah successfully operated his own dental practice in Cary for 13 years, which he sold in 2018. During that time, the Shahs had 3 boys, the older ones being twins!

Dr. Shah is excited to continue his dental career with Sunrise Dental. In fact, his first job as a young dentist was with Sunrise over 20 years ago!  He believes strongly in a patient-centered approach.  He has always ascribed to the motto: Never Fear the Dentist Again! “If we can just listen to our patient's wants and needs, the anxiety towards treatment can be reduced or overall eliminated. This leads to better outcomes and happier smiles!" 

Dr. Shah enjoys traveling, camping, golf, and of course, college football. As a family, they enjoy giving back and volunteering in the community through charities and food pantries. He is also fluent in Gujarati from western India. He looks forward to helping you with all your dental needs!
