“I strive to make each and every patient feel comfortable in the dental chair, alleviating any apprehension they have by thoroughly explaining all Orthodontic treatment and making a personalized plan for each patient. I make it my goal to put every patient at ease by treating them with the same care and concern as I do with my own family.” -Dr. Al Azzawi
