Meet Dr. Mudhar Al-Bayati
Before becoming a Welland dentist, Dr. Mudhar achieved his doctorate at the University of British Columbia’s (UBC) Faculty of Dentistry. He has worked across Canada and internationally since 1997.
Dr. Mudhar’s goal is to make Welland Dental Centre “a comfortable and inviting environment for all patients.” He enjoys all aspects of dentistry but is particularly interested in oral surgery, as well as restorative and cosmetic dental treatments.
Away From The Office
While he works, Dr. Mudhar loves listening to classical music. But when he’s not helping perfect your smile, he enjoys watching and playing soccer.
Meet Dr. Yasser Mohammed
Just like Dr. Mudhar, Dr. Yasser graduated from UBC’s Faculty of Dentistry. He has been helping patients as a dentist for more than 20 years.
Dr. Yasser prides himself on treating all patients with respect and care. He believes that effective treatment starts with listening to you first. At the core of his philosophy is the fact that a healthy mouth is integral to a healthy body. “I aim to help my patients maintain a beautiful and healthy smile by presenting them with all possible treatment options while offering my impartial professional opinion,” he says. Dr. Yasser has a gentle and caring touch, and his approach to dentistry is preventive and conservative.
Away From The Office
Aside from dentistry, Dr. Yasser is a devoted family man. He’s married with a twin son and daughter who fill up his spare time … and he wouldn’t have it any other way!
