Dr George Ibrahim general dentist

George Ibrahim

General Dentist

I believe dentistry combines medicine, art and science. Dentistry requires manual dexterity and is a field that naturally attracts those with the inclination to work with their hands. It also appeals to those who want to use medical science to help others.

I am pretty approachable, outgoing and love meeting new people. I believe everyone you meet have a story to tell or a lesson to teach. In my free time I love to play the guitar and keyboard. I like to keep myself updated with the recent dental guidelines by reading the latest articles and attending as much courses as I can.
