Working on children is completely different from working on adults. Dr. Jabri believes that working on children needs special skills and patience. Adults go to the dentist by choice, while children are brought to the dentist by their parents. They do not know why, but it is the job of the dental team, at the pediatric dental clinic, to educate them and explain to them this new experience, and show them the importance of teeth and oral hygiene.
“Best way to show your kids the importance of good oral hygiene is to practice good oral hygiene yourself.”
Dr. Jabri enjoys cooking, photography, biking, and charcoal drawing.
Dr. Jabri invented some dental instruments, and has patent in his name.
