Meet Dr. Tawakkol
Dr. Sarah Shoukr, DDS, was welcomed to our practice in September of 2019. "Dr. Sarah" was
born in Tucson, AZ while her dad was obtaining his PhD in Engineering. At age three, her family
moved back to their home country Egypt where she grew up. She decided to move back to the
USA with her husband in 2010.
After earning her Bachelor’s degree of Dentistry and Oral Surgery in 2008, she provided dental
care to low-income families in Egypt for 2 years. When she moved to the States, Dr. Sarah
worked as a Dental Assistant/Orthodontic assistant while raising her firstborn daughter and
passing the National Board Dental Examinations Part 1 and Part 2.
She earned her DDS degree at the University of Michigan in 2018, ranking in the top 15
students of her class. While completing her clinical work, she also volunteered at Give
Kids a Smile Clinic (treating pediatric patients for free), Mouth Guard Clinic (free mouth
