Ghassan Aro, DDS

“Nature is diversity, and every patient is unique. This is the essence of my discipline.

Dentistry is a beautiful and fascinating blend of science and art. My greatest joy is the fine details in treatment planning that makes the biggest difference. While we use the latest technologies in building and executing a beautiful smile, it must be artistically modified to recreate a natural, pleasing outcome. Each smile has an original charm, emotion and perfect imperfections that take into account the personality of each individual. This is where patients teach me every day how to better myself: finding the secret blend for every one of them.”

Dr. Ghassan Aro attended dental school at Damascus University, from which he graduated in 1994. He continues his dental education regularly to remain at the forefront of the dental field and provide his patients with the highest possible quality of care. He has received advanced training in a number of restorative and cosmetic treatments, including dental implants and dentures. Patient smile makeovers are not limited simply to cosmetic veneers, but also to restorative treatments such as the specialty dentures Dr. Aro provides. He is dedicated to providing a satisfying result and uses 3D imaging technology to visualize his patients’ results before making them a reality.

Dr. Aro has practiced in the San Luis Obispo area since 2003 and is a member of several professional dental organizations, including:

Dr. Aro and his wife, Mirna, have made San Luis Obispo their home for over 10 years. They have a daughter, Tatiana with whom they love spending time. Outside of spending time with his family, Dr. Aro enjoys fishing and working to improve his community.


Office Manager and Treatment Coordinator

Hi, my name is Summer. I have been with Aro Dental Practice for just over two years. I went to school at Allan Hancock College in Santa Maria for dental assisting and maintain state licensing even though I prefer the interaction with patients helping them through their treatment plans and seeing them return for maintenance. We have the best work family here at Aro Dental Practice. We enjoy doing team building activities outside of work and at work we all work as a team towards achieving the same goals.

My husband and I live in our home in Grover Beach with our two chiweenies, Buddy and Wally, and our 18-year-old kitty, Charlie. On my down time you will find me in my garden, crafting, hanging out with friends or visiting my family. I can’t wait to meet you!


Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)

I graduated from Diablo Valley College in 2011 with my Associate of Science degree in dental hygiene. I joined Aro Dental Practice in 2012, and love helping people keep their smiles healthy and beautiful. I love my work family and the way we all work together as a team for a common goal, and I take pride in providing custom care to fit our patients’ individual needs so that they can enjoy optimum oral health and comfort.

My husband and I have two children, one daughter and one son, and a bulldog named Frank. Outside of the office, my hobbies including running half-marathons and lake activities such as wakeboarding and wake surfing.


Lead Registered Dental Assistant

I am our lead registered dental assistant and have been with Dr Aro for more than five years. I went to beauty college back in 1995 and received my license but figured out that wasn’t for me. I went to school for dental assisting at Allan Hancock College in 2000 and started working in the dental field right out of school. I appreciate that Dr. Aro is caring about his job and he is always up to date on new equipment. I love that we all work well together as a team and are able to have fun outside of the office hanging out, and I like to make sure patients are taken care of and make sure they are comfortable as possible.

I recently married a wonderful man that is a great supporter in everything I do. I have an amazing daughter who recently graduated from EMT school and is in the process of signing up for the Navy. My wonderful son is in the Navy and is pursuing a career as a firefighter. In my spare time I love to spend time with my husband and doing crafts.


Registered Dental Assistant

Hi my name is Lupe, I am bilingual and I have been in dentistry for just over 25 years. I have been working with Dr Aro for 2 years. I have had the opportunity to work in other offices on the Central Coast throughout my career.

For me working in dental is a privilege and I get happiness from being able to help others feel comfortable and build a friendship with each patient that visits our practice. One of the things that makes me feel happy is watching a patient complete their treatment and leave happy with their results.

I am a single mom of 4 children that have all been true blessings in my life. My 3 oldest have all graduated college and my youngest will graduate high school this year and go off to college. My hobbies include going to church, singing, camping, baking, visiting my family and being a Dodger fan!
