Scottish Centre for Excellence in Dentistry: Meet Fadi
GDC No. 252526, BCom, DDS, MClinDent, MFDS M.Orth (RCS Edin), DipMJDF M.Orth (RCS Engl): Specialist in Orthodontics
I got into dentistry after completing a degree in international management because I wanted to be in a position to make a direct positive difference in people’s lives. I studied dentistry in the UAE and practised for two years after qualifying, before moving to the UK in 2011.
Since moving to the UK, I specialised in Orthodontics at the University College London, completed many robust examinations and assessments to enable me to register with the General Dental Council as a general dentist and specialist. This helped me gain membership in General Dentistry and Orthodontics at both the Royal College of Surgeons in England and Edinburgh.
In 2015, I moved to Scotland and have since had the opportunity to treat a vast number of adults and children with varying complexity. My reputation in Orthodontics has been built over time, as I consider treatment a partnership between myself and the patient.
The wealth of clinical experience coupled with the outstanding support made joining SCED a very easy decision.
I joined the Scottish Centre for Excellence in Dentistry (SCED) as I believe the benefits to the patient care in a multidisciplinary dental environment are immeasurable. The wealth of clinical experience in all aspects of dentistry, coupled with the outstanding support, made joining SCED a very easy decision.
I take a patient-centred approach to planning and providing orthodontic treatment, ensuring the patients’ needs are met at all stages. Every decision I make uses my knowledge and experience, and I treat each patient as though their teeth were my own. My goal is to ensure that every patient is happy with their result while prioritising their oral health.
Patient care is at the heart of everything I do, and I will ensure that every patient knows that I genuinely care for their wellbeing above all else. Although dentistry is a practical profession, it requires listening to and empathising with patients while providing the most suitable treatment options. This is necessary to maximise positive patient-perceived treatment outcomes.
