Well, it’s interesting. Unlike a lot of other people that know much about dentistry and then make a decision, mine started as a very, very young age. We had a very kind, very nice family dentist that treated everyone in my family, and I just loved going to his office. He was very engaging, he was very kind. Even though I needed a lot of procedures done as a young girl, he never made it frightening, he never made it like it was work. To me, going to his office was just another adventure. I could see the passion that he had on his day-to-day work, and I wanted to be like him ever since I was a little girl. And I never knew what it took to become a dentist, I just knew that I wanted to love what I do just like the way he did.
Dentistry, compared to other areas of healthcare, has been in forefront of staying abreast with new technologies and what can be integrated into the practice to make it easier for the patients. If you think of it, patients trust us with one of the most intimate parts of their body, which is their mouth, their smile, their teeth. In order for us to gain their trust and be able to deliver what we’re trying to do, we have to offer a certain level of comfort, a certain level of authenticity. And that only comes if you really love what you do.
Dr. Tammy Zeineddin Delivers the Best Care Possible
Dr. Tammy Zeineddin has been practicing dentistry since 1992 and has loved every minute of it. What makes her smile every morning, besides her coffee, is the exciting adventures of her day at our office. From meeting new patients to reconnecting with the old ones, every encounter brings her joy. She was fortunate to choose her career early in life because of a positive impression she had of her own family dentist. He was a caring yet inspiring individual. Her visits to his office as a little girl were all about fun, excitement, and new discoveries. Not much has changed!
Dr. Zeineddin attended the University of Michigan School of Dentistry in Ann Arbor, earning her Doctorate of Dental Surgery with honors in 1992. She approached her training with such excitement and fervor that she graduated with her dental degree two years ahead of time, making her the youngest in her class. Continuing her education is another way to stay in the forefront of new advancements and ensure her patients are getting the best treatment possible. She has sought out new education on a variety of topics and technologies including TMJ disorders, full mouth reconstruction, dental implants, Invisalign and 3-D radiography.
She is also a member of:
- American Dental Association
- Georgia Dental Association
- International Dental Implant Association
- American Academy of Facial Esthetics
At 19th Street Dental, she is thrilled to work with a team that believes in a shared vision and strives to deliver the best possible care to all of our patients.
She is also involved with the Team Smile and the Atlanta Falcons, partnering and volunteering to provide dental services to children who do not have access to proper dental care. Being able to give back to her community is very rewarding for her. As her father always says, “You receive from the same hand you give.” Giving is Living!
Although she is not a native, Dr. Zeineddin has lived in Atlanta longer than she has lived anywhere else and considers it her hometown. It is where all of her family lives, where she started her career, where she met and married her husband, and where she had her two sons… the list goes on! She is an avid reader, an early habit that was engraved in her daily routine by her mother. Working out, practicing yoga, and gardening are among her favorite pastimes. She also enjoys traveling and skiing with her family.
