We had the good fortune of connecting with Heba Shammout and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Heba, what do you attribute your success to?

Without a doubt, the number one contributing factor to my success is having the right mindset, How I think determines how I act and how I act determines the result I get. To ensure that I have the positive and healthy mindset, I never dreamed about success, I worked for it.

People will always say It’s luck, but it is all about working hard to achieve what I want. It was not easy to become a dentist in USA but with hard work and dedication I graduated from one of the best school in the country USC ( Ostrew Herman school of Dentistry ) and became a successful Dentist, Business women, an IG and TikTok content creator.

I would say the most the most important factor in getting to where I am today is never ever giving up and never letting my doubt or any one thought to get in the way.

Success is no accident. Luck is great but most of life is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do more and keep going and never give up til you get what you want

Success to me is being happy in what I do and making a difference in the world, success is setting a goal and achieving them, success is finding that perfect balance in life between friends, family, work and “me” time

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I love that by being in Dentistry, I can give someone the smile they have always wanted and make their smile goal a reality. I practice because I love to connect with people and dentistry allows me to develop an ongoing relationship with my patients and their families. I am on social media because I feel I can educate more people especially younger generation.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.

Tucson is a great “secret “place to visit and even to settle down, mountains in every direction. If you visit, you will immediately be taken in by Tucson. It offers 286+ glorious days of sun rays. On most days you will wake up and peek out your window to find blue skies and glittering sunbeams.

If a friend visits me, I will take them first to see mount Lemon where the highest point in the Santa Catalina mountains is. We will visit Tucson Mountain Park where we can spy splendid saguaros with spellbinding views. We will hick in the Sabino Canyon and visit university of Arizona beautiful campus. Old Tucson is very attractive place to visit as well.

Tucson offer a wild range of amazing restaurants with different cousins like Vivace, Wild garlic and Fleming steak house.
