A Passion for Orthodontics
I love creating smiles and changing people’s lives. When I begin to develop a treatment plan for a new patient, I look at the person’s whole face, not just the teeth. I consider how form and function will work harmoniously to create an amazing new smile for that individual.
As an orthodontist, my goal is to help each person achieve the best possible result in the shortest time frame. The revolutionary Invisalign® treatment process, and digital scanning of the patient’s teeth, makes that possible for everyone.
The relationships that develop between my patients and me often go beyond that of patient and healthcare provider: we become friends and partners, who work together in pursuit of straight teeth and beautiful smiles. I love that I see each patient on a frequent basis, because it allows me to build a close relationship with them. Sometimes I am even lucky enough to meet and provide care to their family members and friends, too!
My Education and Commitment to Continuing Education
- Bachelor of Dental Science – Tanta University, Egypt
- Residency – University of Illinois at Chicago
- Fellowship training – University of Illinois at Chicago
I am a fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada and certified by the American Board of Orthodontics. In addition, I serve as a professor of orthodontics at the University of Alberta here in Edmonton.
Now is an exciting time to be an orthodontist. With revolutionary treatments being developed, emerging technologies, and new materials becoming available, we have better ways to care for our patients. By pursuing continuing education through courses, lectures, and conferences, as well as reading the latest findings in oral healthcare journals, I stay current on the changes.
My patients trust me to provide them with the best care and care experience. Continuing education ensures that I exceed their expectations.
When I’m not caring for patients or studying, I enjoy being outdoors, especially fishing and biking. I’m an avid fan of the Edmonton Oilers and Eskimos football.
I like sports and my office supports and sponsors many local teams, including the:
- Edmonton Oil Kings
- Confederation Park Cubs baseball
- Little League Big Legacy Project
- Alberta Team Handball Federation
- Southwest Sting Soccer Club
I love being involved in our community, to help and support as many people and families as I can.
