Meet The Doctors
Kareem Fatouh, DDS
Dr. Kareem Fatouh grew up watching both of his parents enjoy successful careers as dentists. Seeing the satisfaction they experienced from helping their patients sparked Kareem’s passion for dentistry at a very young age. Before he had even entered college, he knew he would follow in their footsteps and someday run his own practice.
In 2007, Dr. Fatouh graduated from NYU College of Dentistry with a Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree. He went on to complete the general practice residency program at Montefiore Medical Center, and he has been in private practice ever since. His dedication to ongoing education and training has since led him to complete the NYU esthetic dentistry program and the NYU implant dentistry program, both of which expanded his skill set and expertise significantly. Dr. Fatouh has also attained his Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD) and the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (FICOI).
Since opening his own practice, his love for his profession has only grown. He strives to ensure that his patients are comfortable from the moment they enter his office until the moment they walk out. Successfully creating lifelong relationships with patients brings Dr. Fatouh immense satisfaction, and he is dedicated to helping each of his patients achieve the healthy smiles they desire.
Rebekah Nguyen, DDS
Dr. Rebekah Nguyen was born in Virginia and raised outside of Seattle, Washington. She received her Bachelor of Science from Western Washington University where played on the Women's Rugby team.

Dr. Nguyen brings a gentle hand and humor to her patients, making them feel at ease in the office. She has a keen eye for Cosmetic Dentistry and demands quality and perfection in all her dental work. Dr. Nguyen is committed to advancing her skill set; as such, she has been actively taking Continuing Education courses, notably in Implant Dentistry. She enjoys giving patients the smile and function that they desire.
But life is not all about teeth; in her free time, Dr. Nguyen enjoys traveling the world (she is always looking for a deal), trying new recipes (she hasn't started any fires yet), and she recently finished running her first half-marathon and is training to beat that time in her next.
