Changing Lives, One Person at a Time
A person’s smile can make or break that person’s confidence and self-esteem. As a dentist, I have the ability, the honor, of helping people regain their confidence by working with them to restore their smile and oral health.
When a patient and I have finished the process, and they’ve achieved optimal dental health and smile they want to share, well, that makes me smile.
When I was younger and I’d see my dentist for checkups, or when I’d get sick and have to go to the doctor, I was amazed at how those people helped me get better. In my mind they were the closest thing to true superheroes.
As I grew up, I realized I wanted to help others feel better, healthier, and happier. I always loved working with my hands, was drawn to science, and knew I wanted a profession that allowed me to connect with people on a personal basis. Dentistry is the perfect fit!
I am devoted to changing people’s perceptions of dentistry. Today’s dental care is truly comfortable and everyone here is committed to making sure each patient feels relaxed and safe during their visits.
I love how each patient is completely unique, with very specific dental and personal needs and goals. It’s a great feeling to earn a patient’s trust and partner with them to find the ideal treatment approach to achieve all of their desires!
Education and Continuing Education

My patients deserve the best care, whether that’s diagnostics with new technology or a revolutionary restoration option. Dentistry is ever-changing and it’s imperative I learn as much as I can so I can guide each patient to the best treatment outcome possible.
Each year I take many hours of continuing dental education, attending meetings, lectures, and seminars. By learning from the leaders in the profession, I ensure I’m offering patients the right care approach to their needs. I’m also an active member of a local study club, learning alongside my peers and other oral healthcare professionals.

Beyond the Practice
I was born in Egypt, spent my early years in New Jersey, and moved to Florida when I was 12. I now live in Port Orange. When not working, I spend much of my time with my parents and friends. I also volunteer at St. George Coptic Orthodox Church: it’s part of my heritage, it’s where I was brought up. The church has given me so much and made me who I am.
