For Dr. Reem Abdulrahman, orthodontics is more than just a practice—it’s a pathway for continuing research. “That’s one of the main reasons I got into orthodontics in the first place,” she says. “I’ve been doing a lot of research with human skulls at the Penn Museum in Philadelphia, really looking at our own history to learn about how to treat patients today. It’s so interesting.”
When she was younger, she often felt like her experience with dentists left her wanting more information, to feel more in control. “That’s the kind of provider I want to be,” she says. “Completely transparent, someone who’s going to let you know all your options, and give you a really comprehensive evaluation. I want to help you feel like you can comfortably make your own informed decisions.”
And if you’ve thought about orthodontics, but have never known if it was for you, Dr. Abdulrahman says, “Just come by! It’s just a conversation. We’ll take a look, see how your teeth present, what your main concerns are. You might be surprised that something you think is a big deal is actually something we correct all the time.”
