I was born in East Jerusalem – Palestine in 1963. Jerusalem; the small city that is surrounded by massive struggles and greed, tearing at the hope of those who dream of world justice.

I got my DDS degree in 1987 from Cluj Napoca, and the Ph.D. in 2002 from Carol Davila Bucharest, Romania.
I started my professional life in the private sector that gave me the opportunity to feel the needs of the patients and increased my awareness to the need for well-trained and well-educated dentists.

To use implants as replacement to maintain fixed prosthesis possibilities, as well to solve the factors which form obstacles to implement the treatment plan of fixed prosthesis like bone atrophy, and through using Polymer material PDLLA for bone regeneration.
The journey to meet the need and desires of the patients led me to the pertinence in advanced minimal invasive dentistry, which encouraged me to attend and to be a member of the global family of the PST seminar to gain the skills which create and augment gingiva, to obtain root coverage, to eliminate sensitivity and to prevent root caries, utilizing minimal incision.

I always believe that the well-being of humankind is the most important goal, and all people individually and collectively must work together side by side to achieve that goal the welfare of humanity to maintain good health education as well justice to reach the high standard of quality of life.
This belief has drawn the map for my professional life and paved the ways toward international scientific and educational cooperation in the dental field to provide opportunities for dental students as well dentists for developing skills and experience to provide high-quality medical services.
