Dental Hygienist, Canada
Certified iTOP Instructor
Orthodontic Center, Dubai
Rahleh Mahtabpour graduated from the Azad University of Tehran in 2002 with a Diploma in Oral Hygiene. She has over 17 years of professional experience and has worked in both public and private dental practices in the UAE.
In 2015, Rahleh officially qualified in Prague as a Certified iTOP Instructor. Being an iTOP clinician, she advocates the effective and non-traumatic way of learning good oral care.
"Learning Individually Trained Oral Prophylaxis or iTOP offers a lot of benefits for dental professionals. Students are trained one-on-one, with the correct technique of brushing, flossing and using interdental flosses. We all use what we learn to make sure we take better care of our patients."
Her interest includes periodontal (gum) and bad breath treatment, guided biofilm therapy, oral hygiene care in adults and children and home and in-office teeth whitening.
She speaks English, Farsi and basic Arabic. In her spare time, she enjoys cycling and playing her guitar.
