Dr. Haghighi was encouraged to attend dental school by his uncle, a general dentist who knew that the field would combine his nephew’s interest in both art and science. From there, Dr. Haghighi was drawn to oral and maxillofacial surgery because of the immediate and life-changing impact he was able to make on patients.
Dr. Haghighi chose to join Greater Charlotte Oral & Facial Surgery because he was impressed by the level of care Dr. Marashi provides his patients as well as his oral surgery team. Dr. Haghighi looks forward to delivering this same level of care to patients in need of dental implants, facial trauma repair, and orthognathic or corrective jaw surgery.
Dr. Haghighi attended Ohio State University for both his Bachelor of Science degree in chemical and biomolecular engineering, and his Doctor of Dental Surgery.
He completed his oral and maxillofacial surgery residency program at Indiana University.
Outside of work, Dr. Haghighi enjoys traveling and experiencing different cultures. He immerses himself in nature while hiking and kayaking, and he never turns down an opportunity to go indoor rock climbing.
