Meet Dr. Mouhab Z. Rizkallah DDS MSD PC

Dr. Rizkallah is a certified orthodontist. He is a member of the World Federation of Orthodontics. Further, he is the national consultant for the Orthodontics Directory and the National Dental Health Directory. He also serves as an expert lecturer and orthodontic examiner in multiple forums.

Over his career, Dr Rizkallah has accumulated numerous degrees, honors, and accollades in various arenas. In addition to attaining valedictorian status in multiple professional programs, Dr. Rizkallah has held many leadership positions in the dental field. He is considered among his compatriots to be a leader in modern dental and orthodontic treatment. His treatment time efficiency along with his invisible and affordable treatment options have broadened the population of candidates now desiring tooth movement.

Dr Rizkallah attended formal residency training in orthodontics at Boston University, and possesses a Masters degree in Orthodontic Biomaterials. His particular orthodontic research focus has been on improving invisible braces and the development of plastics designed for the purpose of providing invisible tooth movement.

Dr. Rizkallah applies his research knowledge daily in his orthodontic treatment, by providing “simple aligners” to patients desiring improved tooth position in an invisible/ affordable fashion. Many of his “simple aligner” patients have never had orthodontic treatment because of an aversion to “braces.” Dr. Rizkallah’s “simple aligners” allow these individuals to receive the results they have wanted in a fashion that fits their social needs.
