Dr. Omar Issa
Board Certified Orthodontist
An admitted “science geek”, Dr. Issa loves the ever-evolving field of orthodontics and technology that represents the state-of-the-art care that his practice is known for. When he’s not chair-side with patients, you’ll find Dr. Issa still devoted to his orthodontic specialty. Whether he’s at his computer reviewing a SureSmile or Invisalign treatment plan, or reviewing the latest journal articles and courses, Dr. Issa believes it’s his responsibility to stay on top of the latest ways to provide great treatment to his patients.
Dr. Issa was born in Dover New Hampshire, and then lived alternatively between the US and Egypt as he was growing up. After graduating with honors and a BS in Dental Surgery from Cairo University, he completed a General Dentistry Residency at Cairo University Hospital.
Dr. Issa then returned stateside to further his dental education at The University of Minnesota School of Dental Medicine. There he received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery, Master of Science and completed a Graduate Residency in Dentistry before entering and then completing the Orthodontic Residency Program for his Certificate in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. This educational path that included multiple residencies provides Dr. Issa a strong foundation that he uses daily in his patient’s orthodontic treatment and gives him particular insight when managing multi-disciplinary cases with general dentists and other specialists. Dr. Issa has completed his certification by the American Board of Orthodontists. He is currently serving as the President of the Texas Association of Orthodontists.
Dr. Issa, his wife (who’s also a dentist) and their two sons love exploring their new home state, taking advantage of parks, restaurants and sports activities. The wide variety of things to do and places to go are some of the reasons they chose to move to Plano from Minnesota. (Well, it may have had a little bit to do with the weather…) Dr. Issa is also an athlete in his down-time; soccer, tennis and squash are all favorite sports that suit his high-energy personality.
