GDC No. 101012

Born in Egypt, but raised in Hong Kong, Haytham moved to the UK to study dentistry in Newcastle, where he fell for the charm of the North East and he has lived in the area ever since!

After qualifying in 2005, Haytham started off his career in a competitive hospital training program which led him to focus on his interest in Oral Surgery.  He spent the next 5 years gaining experience in a wide range of surgical procedures with the support of some of the finest consultants in Maxillofacial surgery.  In 2010, he was given the opportunity to work in a large sedation based dental clinic. He gained vast experience treating hundreds of patients under sedation whilst carrying out a wide variety of dental treatments.Alongside his clinical commitments, Haytham enrolled onto the Warwick University Dental Implantology Diploma. In 2014 he was awarded his Diploma in dental Implantology and has since helped hundreds of patients regain their smiles and function with the aid of dental implants.

Haytham joined Alpha Dental Studio and Alpha Vitality Implant Clinic in April 2013. He provides sedation for patients at our Catterick and Stokesley practices. In addition to this, Haytham has been carrying out implant treatment for the group at Fairfield, Catterick and Stokesley to help minimise patient travel within the Alpha group. And in September 2016 he will be able to offer his implant services at our Chester le Street practice. Combining sedation and implants has enabled him to offer patients the possibility of being relaxed and comfortable throughout their implant journey.

When he is not working, Haytham enjoys spending time with his wife and two children and is a keen sportsman.  A footballer at heart, he now mostly plays socially, but has also discovered a love for cycling and has taken part in several races and charity events.

“I find treating anxious patients very rewarding, my experience with sedation means I can provide quality care for patients who would otherwise be too nervous to have treatment.”

“My experience with implants has led me to carry out a wide variety of treatments, from straight forward single tooth implants to complex full arch cases and I have found the results for my patients beyond what I would have imagined. The joy on my patients’ faces when they return having been able to be confident in smiling or going out for meals is what I strive to achieve for every patient.”
