I graduated and obtained my DDS from Ajman University, UAE. Ever since I graduated my motive has been to serve my country and community to the best of my ability. I have been doing so for several years working at a Primary Health Care Center at the Ministry of Health in Kuwait, keeping my level of education up to date and providing my patients with the highest standards of dental treatment. I love and admire the ever-changing nature of the field of Orthodontics and I’m ready to take my future practice to a new level and be part of a team that advocates unconditional thinking.
