Parastou Rouhani-Terrany, DDS, MSD, an Endodontist with Gulf Coast Endodontics

Get to know Endodontist Dr. Parastou Rouhani-Terrany, who serves patients in Houston, Texas.

Dr. Terrany is an endodontist who is currently affiliated with Gulf Coast Endodontics in Houston, Texas. Gulf Coast Endodontics provides extensive endodontic care, which includes root canal therapy, root canal retreatment, root canal surgery (apicoectomy), treatment of cracked teeth, as well as treatment of traumatic dental injuries. The compassionate team of professionals working there are dedicated to creating a comfortable and friendly environment for all of their patients.

Dr. Terrany is currently serving as a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Endodontics at the University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston. 

Dr. Terrany earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Paris Descartes University in 1997. She graduated with the highest honors for her DDS thesis and publication. After earning her degree, Dr. Terrany practiced general dentistry while actively pursuing continuing education to ensure that she always provided her patients the highest level of dental care. During that period, she developed a keen interest in endodontic therapy, which led her to pursue a postgraduate degree in endodontics. She completed her residency, certification, and Master of Science in Dentistry degree with a main interest in pulp regeneration from the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston in 2011. 

Dr. Terrany loves helping patients overcome their hesitations about having root canals performed. She treats every patient like family. “Being able to help patients in pain is the most rewarding practice in dentistry” according to Dr. Terrany, and it is the reason why she specialized in endodontics.

Dr. Terrany’s interest in general dentistry began at the age of twelve while visiting her friend’s dad’s office. She was amazed by the artistic side of dentistry and the gratitude patients had after being relieved of their pain. Coming from a family of artists and doctors, becoming a dentist became a natural path for her. 

Endodontics is the dental specialty concerned with the study and treatment of the dental pulp. An endodontist is a dentist who specializes in saving teeth. Endodontists become specialists by completing two or more years of advanced training in endodontics following dental school. Combining her experience in general dentistry and endodontics to alleviate her patients’ discomfort is Dr. Terrany’s number one priority. 

Dr. Terrany, her husband, and their two children have made Houston their home. During her spare time, Dr. Terrany enjoys painting, swimming, traveling, and spending quality time with her family and friends.
