After earning his Bachelors Degree in Dentistry in 2001 from the Faculty of Dentistry, Cairo University, Dr. El-Halaby practiced as a general dentist for about five years. During that time, his interest in the field of implantology drew him to pursue an advanced education in periodontics.
In 2006 Dr. El-Halaby started residency at the Periodontics program at Case Western Reserve University, under the mentorship of Dr. Nabil Bissada. This dual-degree program awarded him with a Masters Degree in Oral Sciences, and a Certificate in Periodontics.
During residency, Dr. El-Halaby worked on a research project investigating the relationship between failed hip and knee joints and oral periodontal health, in addition to bacterial plaque and synovial fluid bacterial DNA compositions. This resulted in a publication in the Journal of Clinical Rheumatology in the April 2012 issue, and was Dr. El-Halaby’s masters thesis project.
Other publications by Dr El-Halaby as primary author were related to clinical and surgical topics, and were published in the International Journal of Periodontics and Restorative Dentistry, and the Texas Dental Journal.
As a board certified periodontist, Dr. El-Halaby remains up to date with research and publications, as well as recent advances in the field. In practice his main focus is on dental Implant and related surgeries, as well as the treatment of chronic periodontitis
In 2011, Dr El-Halaby founded the East Texas Dental Hygiene Study Club, which provides the dental community with continuing education credits (CE’s) in the format of regular seminars discussing current and future trends in the field.
We are pleased that Dr. El-Halaby is now a valued member of our staff at Stellar Dental Care.
