A common misconception about orthodontics is when a child or patient should first come in for an orthodontic consultation.
25th April 2017, Dubai, UAE: Dr. Michael’s Dental Clinic, the leading and most trusted dental healthcare provider in the UAE, welcomes Dr. Abdelhakim A. El-Gheriani to its team of highly experienced Orthodontists.
"A common misconception about orthodontics is when a child or patient should first come in for an orthodontic consultation. It is commonly perceived to be at the age of 12 or when all the permanent teeth erupt. This is inaccurate as developmental problems could be missed and their treatment at a later stage may be more complicated. Ideally patients should present at around the age of 7 or shortly after the emergence of the permanent teeth in the mouth."
Dr. Michael’s Dental Clinic stands at the apex of quality patient centered dental care in the region. I too believe in the same ethos.
Following his DMD from the University of Pittsburgh, USA, in 2002, Dr. El-Gheriani completed his postgraduate training in Orthodontics at the University of Colorado, USA, in 2006.
"Dr. Michael’s Dental Clinic stands at the apex of quality patient centered dental care in the region. I too believe in the same ethos and having maintained a practice in 3 locations for several years, the opportunity to combine all my clinical activity under one roof will only serve to improve my patient care services."
