Royal Oak Dental Group
Welcomes Dr. Jiger Shah and Family
To Our Newly Acquired Durham Location
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. Dr. Shah received his bachelor’s degree 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. During that time, he had twins and 1 more child…all boys!
Dr. Shah is honored that Dr. Pyle has entrusted him to take over the care of his patients. Dr. Pyle established an amazing practice offering quality dental care and commitment to his patients. Dr. Shah is excited to continue his dental career with Royal Oak Dental Group and the patients of Dr. Pyle. He will strive to build strong relationships with all patients. This means taking the time to learn how he can gain and maintain trust for optimal oral health. Dr. Shah 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.
Lastly, we know that change is not always easy, but we will work hard to make a very smooth transition and make you comfortable with our new look, including NEVER wearing “Carolina Blue”!
