Ibrahim Y. Alhussain, DMD
"The best part of being an orthodontist is the satisfaction I receive when I see the continuous improvement in the physical and emotional well-being of my patients.
Orthodontics allows me to change lives. It is meaningful to me to have skills that may be used to improve a person’s smile, giving them a renewed sense of confidence .
The opportunity to establish life-long relationships and friendships with my patients and their families is so rewarding. My patients are amazing individuals. No matter their age, 7 or 77, I learn something from each of them and they make me smile. The trust that develops between us is humbling. I am always touched by their excitement when I remove their braces, and they see their new and improved smile for the first time. It is contagious and wonderful!
Patients visiting my practice have access to an incredible team of talented, compassionate individuals that I have the privilege of working alongside every day. Together, we do our best to accommodate the needs of those we care for. All of us are highly experienced and exceptionally skilled in working with anxious patients and in providing comfort and reassurance.
We cannot wait to help transform your smile!"
