Mariam was born and raised in Manchester, England. Shortly after obtaining her degree in Biological Sciences at The University of Liverpool, UK, Mariam went on to study Dental Hygiene and Therapy at The University of Leeds, UK and was taught by leading experts in the field of dentistry. Since then, she has gone on to further her skills in dentistry by attending various training courses and has a special interest in advanced gum disease. Mariam is passionate about preventing gum disease and managing existing gum problems.
Prior to moving to Dubai, Mariam had worked as a dental hygienist in England for almost 10 years treating children and adults with various oral health problems. She is particularly keen on meeting and treating patients who have dental anxieties and phobias and is happy to only use the tools that feel most comfortable for them.
“Over the years I have come across a lot of patients who have told me they didn’t visit the dentist for many years due to various fears or bad experiences and that would make me sad. I want my patients to tell me what their fears are so we can work around this to help them achieve a healthy mouth and confident smile.
“As a hygienist there is so much Mariam can do to help you achieve a clean white smile such as scaling and polishing away soft and hardened deposits, stain removal and in-chair Zoom teeth whitening.”
Mariam considers being a foodie as her second job as she loves to eat out. As she is fairly new to Dubai when you see her, please be sure to tell her about your favourite food spots. When at home, she likes to learn and practice different cake decorating techniques.
