Prior to attending dental school, Dr. Salem completed two bachelor’s degrees, one in Biology and one in Medical Technology, from the University of Akron. He then went on to receive his Doctor of Dental Surgery from Case Western Reserve in Cleveland, Ohio.
His mission is to treat his patients like loved family members, and to educate and inform them so that they can come to their own conclusion on what they would like to have done to their teeth. Dr. Salem realizes that dentistry is very invasive, so he does his best to make sure patients understand what is going on and that they are very comfortable during their visit to Summit Dentistry.
Dr. Salem has attended numerous continuing education courses on oral surgery, Invisalign® clear aligners and sleep apnea, and continuously takes courses to stay current with advances in the dental field. His love for his job is evident by the reviews that patients leave after their visit.
