Most of Dr. Shammaa’s family members are dentists, and it was his older brother, an orthodontist, that encouraged him to take the same path. His brother is 18 years older than him, and growing up, Dr. Shammaa always admired how he was able to help people, and he fondly remembers that all of his patients loved him.
