Dr. Kamal Alfakiani (“Dr. Kamal”) knew he wanted a career in the medical or dental field at a young age. He was drawn to orthodontics upon learning how the specialty combines artistry with the fundamentals of science. He says, “I love creating healthy and beautiful smiles!”.
Dr. Kamal completed his Masters Degree in Orthodontics at the University of Buffalo, School of Medicine in 2005 and immediately became an Assistant Professor in the Department of Orthodontics. Prior to his residency, he completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at Damascus University.
Dr. Kamal is an active member of the American Association of Orthodontics as well as the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists. He is a past adjunct professor at AT Still University in Mesa, where his focus was teaching orthodontic residents Invisalign techniques.
Dr. Kamal’s wife and four children, two girls and two boys, help keep him active. When he is not practicing or teaching orthodontics, you can find him watching a soccer game or playing in one—usually as goalie. He has been a big soccer fan since he was a child and his favorite team is Liverpool. He also loves brain games and trivia and has been known as a “walking encyclopedia” with his amusing, and sometimes random, facts.
Supporting his community and those in need is a passion of Dr. Kamal’s. Some of his favorite charitable organizations to support include Arizona Autism United, Aid to Adoption of Special Kids (AASK), Arizona Burn Foundation, Cultural Cup and the Arizona Military Family Relief Fund.
