Omar Wajeeh, DDS General Dentist
Dr. Wajeeh always knew he wanted to do something in the medical field. “I was drawn to dentistry because the oral cavity is the first stop in the body and, therefore, it is the gateway to overall health,” he says. “Dental problems can cause or escalate systemic problems. Fortunately, most problems are easy to diagnose and treat when they are small.”
He strongly advocates patients keep their routine exam and hygiene appointments twice a year. “As with any medical concern, delaying treatment is not a good thing. Come see us regularly and let us treat any dental issue you may have while it is inexpensive and easy to fix. Ignoring a dental concern never helps it get better.”
Originally from Detroit, Michigan, Dr. Wajeeh has been practicing dentistry in the New Baltimore area for more than 18 years, and he has been with the Gentle Dental Bay office since it opened in 2000. “What’s unique about our practice is that you won’t find any pretentiousness here,” he says. “You won’t get a massage or a facial, but we’ll do everything we can to make you comfortable and to provide you with the best possible dental care quickly and painlessly. We understand your time is valuable.”
One of the most rewarding aspects of dentistry for Dr. Wajeeh is getting someone out of pain. He says, “When a patient calls or comes in with an issue that is causing them considerable discomfort and we can resolve that for them, it’s a good feeling.”
Outside of the office, Dr. Wajeeh enjoys spending time with his two children, ages 10 and 12. He coaches and referees basketball for a church league and also enjoys other sports, history, quiz shows and crossword puzzles.
