Ibrahim Elgarawany, DDS
Dr. Ibrahim Elgarawany, or Dr. G, as he is more commonly known around the office, grew up in a small, rural community in Egypt, where no dental services were available. His neighbors and family members used to suffer from aching teeth all the time. Seeing this prompted him to attend dental school, with the goal of helping local communities, especially in rural areas with limited access to dental care. In 2006, he completed dental school in Alexandria, Egypt.
After completing his degree, he finished his post-graduate studies at Saint Mary’s Hospital in Waterbury, CT. He also is affiliated with Yale University. Dr. G has received advanced training in wisdom teeth extraction, Invisalign® aligners, and the placement of mini and regular dental implants. Today, education remains a hallmark of his care. He takes classes once a month to expand his knowledge. Additionally, every three months, he takes a week off of work and attends different continuing education courses to learn about the latest advancements in dentistry.
In his free time, he enjoys swimming, playing soccer and watching basketball. His favorite basketball player is Lebron James. He also enjoys spending time with his wife and three children.
Dr. G enjoys what he does and cares about making a comfortable environment for all of his patients. Our dentist and team can’t wait to help you create a beautiful smile!
