Meet Dr. Salem

Dr Salem, Board Certified Specialist in Orthodontics

I have always found great pleasure in helping others achieve their goals in life by giving them a beautiful smile. I value the opportunity and the trust my patients are giving me to help them make this life changing experience. I like treating my patients like family and I feel honored they selected me to be their orthodontist. I enjoy treating both children and adults with metal braces, clear braces and invisalign. Nothing makes me happier than seeing the pleasure I bring to my patients after finishing braces.

Every year I attend many courses and conferences to stay up to date with the latest orthodontic innovations and techniques. As a board certified orthodontist, I feel it’s my duty to be involved in the research and continuing education that allows me to provide the best treatment options available to my patients.
