As a father of three boys, I understand how scary it can be to go to the dentist. One of my favorite moments was when my 7 year old nephew had to have a filling done. He was very nervous but we talked about sports and I watched him calm down and handle the procedure like a champ! It was a really great moment because I know I had earned his trust. It is really rewarding to reduce the anxieties of my patients, and being able to empathize with how they feel makes me a better dentist and partner in their health.

Jameel Khan, D.M.D.

One of the great things about choosing to have your braces with Dr. Khan here at Pure Smiles is that you can save time. You can schedule your ortho visit and your dental cleaning together! Just one trip to get a professional teeth cleaning and have an orthodontic checkup. On top of convenient scheduling, Dr. Khan and your general dentist can easily talk together to make sure your teeth are moving into position successfully. You receive the added bonus of two dentists’ attention during just one visit. When our dentists work together, you receive high-quality care. Dr. Khan has three children – Imaan, Rassal and Aadil. His hobbies include auto racing, travel, and reading trivia.
