Meet Dr. Abderlrahman Salem

Abderlrahman Salem, DDS

Board Certified Specialist in Orthodontics


I have always found great pleasure in helping others achieve their goals in life by giving them a beautiful smile. I value the opportunity and the trust my patients are giving me to help them make this life-changing experience. I like treating my patients like family, and I feel honored that they selected me to be their orthodontist. I enjoy treating both children and adults with metal braces, clear braces and Invisalign. Nothing makes me happier than seeing the pleasure I bring to my patients after finishing braces.

Every year I attend many courses and conferences to stay up-to-date with the latest orthodontic innovations and techniques. As a Board Certified Orthodontist, I feel it’s my duty to be involved in the research and continuing education that allows me to provide the best treatment options available to my patients.

Our Happy Patients

"When it comes to going to the dentist I'm not going to lie, I get anxiety. But as soon as I walked in everyone was so nice, to the girl who took my xrays, to Cyndi who cleaned my teeth, and to the dentist. They made me feel comfortable which was a big plus! Big thanks to Cyndi for being so patient with me, especially being the last person to be seen today. She explained my plan in detail to make sure I understood everything. Definitely would recommend this place!"

"The whole staff is amazing! All the way from the doctors to the receptionist. Dr. Monica & Jesse are an awesome team. I've always been scared of going to the dentist (horrible experiences in the past) and they're so comforting and reassuring during my appointments. Very reasonably priced. Renee is awesome too! Very thankful I found an amazing dentist office like this one! Highly recommend this place. Thanks guys for being an awesome team!"
