Dr. Ayah Alkhatib was born and raised in Indiana, but has called Birmingham, Alabama her home for the last 10 years. She attended the University of Alabama at Birmingham where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry and Psychology. Dr. Ayah continued her education at UAB School of Dentistry where she served as a Student Recruitment Ambassador and Student Clinic Representative. There, she earned her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree and was the recipient of the Henry Clay Hassell Scholarship and American Academy of Esthetic Dentistry Award. Dr. Ayah’s desire to promote dental education and provide for underserved communities led to her selection for the Alabama Board of Dental Scholarships Rural Scholarship Award.
Dr. Ayah comes from a committed, hardworking family. She and her three sisters are extremely close and thrive on healthy competition with each other. She gained an early appreciation for the field of medicine by watching her father devote his career to the research and development of the science as a medical doctor. While in dental school, Dr. Ayah found the love of her life and is now engaged to her fiancé, Dr. Steven Sheibley. Both being very academic and studious, they always find time to enjoy life and make memories with each other. Some of their favorite things to do together are going to new restaurants with friends, enjoying quality time with family, and enjoying the outdoors by bike riding, relaxing strolls through various parks, and running at the Vulcan Trail. Dr. Ayah’s favorite hobby is baking and loves being able to share the final product with those closest to her.
Dr. Ayah is ecstatic to be a part of the Luma Dentistry family! She is especially excited to take part in the tight-knit and patient focused culture that Luma cultivates and delivers. She is looking forward to using her knowledge and precise hand skills to serve the community that she loves. Nothing makes her happier than to put smiles on people’s faces and listen to their needs and desires. She promises to strive to make every dental experience with her comfortable and enjoyable!
