After working as an orthodontic assistant and trainee in Egypt and serving in the Egyptian military for a brief period, I started a fellowship in orthodontics at Case Western Reserve University.

Right after my fellowship ended, in 2015, I joined the orthodontics residency program at Case Western Reserve University, which had been a dream come true. Throughout this period, I collaborated on many research projects, mostly with a focus on utilizing CBCT scans to help gain a better understanding of the transverse dimension in orthodontic patients. As I developed an interest in human psychology and patients with craniofacial conditions, the focus of my Master's thesis was to evaluate the psychosocial adjustments among teenagers with craniofacial conditions, and try to identify some social factors that could impact their adjustment levels. I am currently pursuing a Fellowship in Craniofacial Orthodontics, which would help me work more closely with the affected individuals and be part of a craniofacial team. Read more
