Why Patient Care Comes First
For Dr. Salem, the most important part of his practice is his patients — hands down.
Dr. Salem is quick to put his patients at ease with light humor. Our office uses pure, filtered water so our patients can rinse without getting a bad taste or any chemicals in their mouths.
Dr. Salem has an easy manner and a genuinely friendly smile. When he says that he truly cares about his patients, it’s easy to believe him.
That’s why he installed TVs in every room so patients can watch their favorite shows, does the best he can to make shots painless, and calls each patient the evening after they undergo a procedure to see how they’re doing.
Outside of the Office
In his time away from dentistry, he loves to spend time with his family, play soccer competitively, and take hikes in nature. He is an active member of his community and volunteers his time mentoring youth.
