The most rewarding part of being a dentist for me is making a change in somebody's condition. You come in and you're having pain, or you can't chew, or you can't eat. Honestly, I get the most reward out of the patient who comes in and says, I've had bad experiences before. I'm really scared. I can't get this done. Just through education, explain to the patient why they need what they need done, how we're going to do it, every step of the way.
Then, we finish their treatment and sit them up, and they say, wow. It's never been that simple before. And, wow, I barely felt that. That was great. Every time that happens, that's where I get the most gratification from, is seeing that I was able to help this person in a way somebody else couldn't. I'm going above and beyond, and my skills are being used well. It really is fulfilling.
Dr. Daboul really stands by North Oaks Dental’s motto, “Our family caring for yours.” His favorite part about being a dentist is connecting with his patients and tailoring treatment for each patient that will get them the results they’re looking for. He loves providing care and individual attention to very anxious and frightened patients and watching them become lifelong patients free of dental anxiety.
He takes satisfaction in seeing his staff enjoy being at work. He loves watching them provide top-notch care for our patients and is proud of them as individuals, providers, and a team.
Dr. Daboul graduated in 2008 from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry. His goal was to have a practice where he could treat his patients and staff like his own family. So, in 2010 he opened the Royal Oak office with the dream of creating an environment people would want to be a part of. He started with no patients and built the practice from scratch.
In the beginning there was one receptionist and one assistant, and Dr. Daboul performed all the teeth cleanings. Today, North Oaks Dental has several dentists, orthodontists, and hygienists, plus a large staff to care for your whole family. We’ve grown so much that we expanded our office to 13 rooms in 2015. Dr. Daboul is proud of the team we have built and the wonderful patient family we provide dentistry for each day.
Dr. Daboul is a huge advocate of continued education. He loves learning about new dental procedures and improving current ones so he can better care for the smiles of Royal Oak and the surrounding area. He has even trained other dentists in the proper techniques for surgical extractions and dental implants. To better inform his patients, Dr. Daboul published a book titled Getting Ready for Dental Implant Surgery.
Dr. Daboul wants you to know that the team at North Oaks Dental is always here to help you and your family with your dental needs.
When he’s not helping patients at our office, Dr. Daboul enjoys spending time with his wife and four children.
Dr. Alvin Daboul has been recognized as an Hour Detroit Top Dentist, an award based on a peer-review survey open to all area dentists. Thousands of votes were cast honoring his excellence in dental care. He will be featured in Hour Detroit magazine in July 2019.
