Dr. Mo Omar
Periodontist BDS PhD FRCD(c)
Dr. Mo Omar is an across-world traveler, as he had to travel for 10,111 km from Cairo to Edmonton, where he specialized in the art of maintaining teeth and preserving gum health and aesthetics, AKA Periodontics. In addition to the three years of clinical training, he invested three more years investigating the potential role of genetics in the association between gum disease and heart disease, a project that made him the first PhD in Periodontology at the University of Alberta.
On his way from Cairo, Dr. Omar made a brief stop in Scotland, where in addition to experiencing the bagpipes and kilts, he attended a post-graduate program in Oral cancer at the University of Dundee.
In the dental chair, utilizing his surgical and non-surgical skills, Dr. Omar strives to maintain his patients’ teeth for as long as possible, and if need be, replace them with implants. He as well would help his patients achieve healthy and aesthetic gums through soft tissue grafts. Dr. Omar has a passion in teaching, so as his patient you can always expect a little bit of education.
Outside of the office, Dr. Omar can be found working out in the gym or meditating in a yoga studio, or possibly in the dog park, but most likely, along with his wife, Sara, they will be cheering on their little gymnast, Laila, at one of her competitions.
