Why He Became an Orthodontist
The first time Dr. Alkhoury had a chance to experience orthodontics was when his 17-year-old sister received braces. He saw for himself how her smile gradually improved and how she became more confident and outgoing as a result. It made a strong impression on him, and at that moment he decided that he wanted to be able to offer the same life-changing experiences to others so that, like his sister, they could enjoy all the benefits of a straighter smile. He’s happy with the career he chose along with all the people he’s met as a result.
Where He Studied Dentistry
Dr. Alkhoury earned his dental degree from Boston University and, after graduating with honors, completed a residency in Advanced Education in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics at New York University. He has since become a widely respected practitioner; in particular, the American Academy of Orthodontists recognized him for the outstanding care he provides as well as his dedication to providing exceptional treatment. He’s always striving to improve himself by staying current with the most up-to-date techniques and technologies. He is currently a member of the following organizations:
- Massachusetts Dental Association
- American Academy of Orthodontists
- American Dental Association
What He Likes to Do Outside of the Orthodontic Office
