Dr. Amit Shah, DDS
Dr. Amit Shah has been providing dental care to our patients at West Point Dental since 2009! He grew up in Kolkata, "the city of joy", in Eastern India. His hometown is known for it's vibrant culture and enthusiastic people! Dr. Shah's family follows a fundamental principle of Jainism, "ahimsa", which means non-violence- through words, actions, and thoughts. This principle guides him in his work and life, which shines through in his calm demeanor and non-judgmental nature.
Dr. Shah's dental journey was inspired by his father, who was the only general dentist in their town that did difficult oral surgeries. He began assisting his father with dental procedures when he was in high school, and he never looked back! In 2004 he achieved his Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) from India. He then came to the USA and completed his Master of Science in Clinical Dentistry (MS) from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, AL in 2007. He graduated with his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from the University of Nebraska Medical Center in 2009, and then joined us here in Commerce Township, MI! We are so happy to have had Dr. Shah leading our dental team for over 10 years!
Outside of work, Dr. Shah loves spending time with his wife, Ritu, and his two young children, Siddarth and Aarohi. He also enjoys listening to music, traveling, and community service!
