Why Did Dr. Dawoud Become a Dentist?
Various members of Dr. Dawoud’s family actually worked in the medical field as he was growing up – his father was a surgeon, and he can count several chiropractors and dentists among his various aunts and uncles too. During his childhood, he ended up needing some extensive dental work and braces for issues that made him very self-conscious about his smile. Once the treatment was complete, his self-confidence and true personality genuinely blossomed, and he realized that he wanted to create these same positive changes in other people. Eventually, this led to him enrolling in dental school.
Dr. Dawoud's Education & Dental Training
Dr. Dawoud has achieved degrees from various prestigious schools, including Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, and The University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. He strongly believes that lifelong oral health and overall wellbeing starts with solid foundations of education and prevention, and this passion influences his care approach on a daily basis.
Dr. Dawoud regularly attends dental seminars all over the world in order to further expand his knowledge of oral healthcare. He has spent an extensive amount of time with Sleep Group Solutions, closely studying various dental treatments that can help patients with sleep apnea achieve long-term relief from dangerous symptoms and even stop snoring altogether through high-quality, custom-made oral appliances. He is also certified in Invisalign and the Pinhole Surgical Technique, which is a modern periodontal procedure that eliminates the need for scalpels and allows for the correction of gum recession in a minimally invasive fashion.
Dr. Dawoud currently holds a Fellowship with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI) and is also a member of the Essex County Dental Association and Academy of General Dentistry.
Outside of the Dental Office
When he isn’t busy caring for patients, Dr. Dawoud spends his free time with his wife Paula and their two sons. He is very active in his church and his community. Dr. Dawoud enjoys football and watches it with his sons often.
