Up Close & Personal with Dr. Amir Hadjhamou

Why did you choose to be a prosthodontist?

My father is a dentist, I grew up in dentistry and has always been passionate about it, even in my young teenage years. The choice of prosthodontics came from the desire of not only offering dental treatment but restoring smiles, rehabilitating function and changing lives.

What do you like most about your job?

What I like most about my job is the human side of it, the connection you establish & emotional link you achieve with your patients especially when we do smile makeovers. Restoring a smile is not only about the perfect smile, it’s about giving your patients a customized smile that reflects their personality & becomes part of their identity. Nothing beats the satisfaction one gets after successfully completing a treatment or witnessing the patient’s reaction when they look at their dream smile in a mirror for the first time.

How do you see the future of prosthodontics?

Digital, it’s actually the present & it keeps evolving.

What are your hobbies?

Traveling would definitely come first, playing golf, soccer & recently since the COVID lockdown, cooking.

What do you like to do outside of work?

Spend time with the family, socialize with friends, discover new places and try out new outdoor activities. There is so much we can experience here in Dubai, from extreme to more laid-back activities, some of the ones I’ve enjoyed were kite surfing, skydiving, sailing and hopefully more to come.

What is the best advice you can give to your patients?

Maintain good hygiene, don’t miss your routine checkups, choose your dentist carefully and do not hesitate to ask your treating doctor any questions you may have about your treatment.
