Meet Our Dental Staff

  

Dr. Lina Al-Aswad

Passionate about Dentistry, Dr. Al-Aswad was keen on establishing a trademark in dental excellence, patient care, and conservative treatments.

Academically, she perused a degree in Dental Medicine and a Graduate Degree in pediatric dentistry from Boston University with academic distinction. Dr. Al-Aswad completed her Masters degree in healthcare management/ public health from Columbia University, New York in October, 2016. 

Practicing pediatric dentistry is challenging and rewarding at the same time. A child’s shy smile, hug, high five, or a personal story told at the end of an appointment no matter how challenging that appointment was is the greatest reward for a job well done by the dentist and staff. 

Dr. Al-Aswad's passion doesn't stop at helping children within a practice setting; she worked on expanding to reach underprivileged children locally and in refugee camps. Therefore, she believes that the public health program will allow her to expand and further help with deeper impact in areas that are in dire need for expert public health programs. 

Dr. Al-Aswad has co-founded a US nonprofit organization (Promise for Relief and Development) operating mostly in the war devastated Syria and aiding refugees in surrounding counties.  As the vice president, legal attaché, she has developed both the orphan sponsor and food baskets programs. Also, she is a member of the Syrian Medical Commission, it is a charitable organization based in Kuwait City with members all in the medical field and spread all over the world.  The mission of the organization is to provide funding and facilitate medical treatment for victims of the Syrian war at home or in Diaspora.

Dr. Singh grew up in New York City. He graduated from The Institute of Dental Studies and Technologies, India in 2013 with a Bachelor’s degree in Dental Surgery. Having gained some work experience, he moved to Boston, where he pursued his DMD degree at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine.

 Dr. Singh actively participates in continuing education so that he can provide an exceptional dental experience with the latest techniques and technologies. He currently serves as an advisor for the Tufts Aesthetics Society, which he founded in his final year of dental school. It is his belief that patient education is necessary for a beautiful and healthy smile.

Saaima Ghaswala

Saaima graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene from Forsyth School of Dental Hygiene – MCPHS University in May 2018, bringing the most current dental hygiene knowledge to the practice.  She is certified in local anesthesia and holds current CPR certification. 

With extensive community outreach experience, Saaima is well rounded in treating every age group including special needs and other disabilities.  The best part of being a hygienist for her is seeing patients leave the office with a smile after receiving the utmost care from the team.

On her personal time, Saaima enjoys traveling, spending time with her friends and family, or just simply taking a stroll outdoors and admiring nature’s beauty.   


 


 

Margie Reyes

Margie studied dental assisting at BCI. She started her internship at AL-Aswad dental in February 2014 and was hired by Dr. Al-Aswad on April 2014.

What Margie likes the most about her job is that she learns new things about our patients everyday. She likes working with her teammates because we all give our best to our patients, we help them maintain beautiful smiles and good dental hygiene.

On her personal life she enjoys to spend time with her family and friends.


Jennifer Rozo 

Jennifer has been part of Al-Aswad Dental team since August 2004.  She is passionate about being a patient advocate. She believes there’s nothing like the satisfied look on a patients face when they’ve navigated the sometimes confusing world of insurance/financing and the unknown of treatment to come out the other end with an even bigger better smile. To calm fears, answer questions and help make treatment possible, especially in a soothing environment is rewarding to me.

Unusual as it may seem, Jennifer always enjoyed going to the dentist as a child, which eventually led her down the career path of Dental Assisting. She strives to build relationships with our patients and find their trust very important and rewarding; Going to work every day is a new experience and another opportunity to ensure our patients feel comfortable and leave happy. Most rewarding to her is seeing a patient with a confident smile after treatment and  She thoroughly enjoys working with the team at Al-Aswad Dental and always look forward to making our patients’ dental experiences better.

 When she is not working she loves spending time with her family, cooking, traveling, or simply sitting at the beach waiting for a nice sunset and being thankful for the day that has pass and the new day that soon will start.
