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.

Dr. Issa has completed his certification by the American Board 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.

I have been a registered Dental Hygienist since 1987. After receiving my degree from Tarrant County College, I began working in a family practice. I soon realized my passion was working with the children. Therefore, I began my career in pediatrics in 1989. My goal is for the children to have a happy dental experience. It is very rewarding for me to see children leave with a smile on their face, especially our special needs patients. Outside of work, I enjoy doing crafts, listening to live music and spending time with my amazing family.
I completed school for dental assisting in 2011, but came to discover my strengths were in front office. I came to work at Kidzania after a few months in a general office. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 11 years. We have 2 cats. In my spare time, I like quilting, sewing, gardening and updating our 1970's ranch style home.
I have been an RDA since November 2000. I have always enjoyed working with children, so in 2011 I made the decision to work only in the pediatric field. I myself am a mother of 7 kids. My oldest child being 20 and my two youngest are 1 and 2 years old. Outside of work its no surprise my family is my life, and i take any opportunity i can to spend time with them. I have always liked what i do, but now I can say that I love what I do. Nothing is more rewarding to me, than being able to give a child a positive experience at the dentist office, and having them leave happy, ready to come back
I started my career as insurance and billing coordinator in 2010, after many years of working in a general practice. I found my passion to be in a pediatric office when I joined the Kidzania team in 2015. My Goal is to help each one of our patients’ better understand their insurance benefits and financial responsibility. Seeing all our patients’ leave with a smile and balloon really make me feel pleased to be part of such a wonderful team. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family attending Cheer activities with my three daughters Karmen, Eva and, Victoria.
I graduated from Mountain View College in Dallas, Tx in 2014. I became a registered dental assistant in 2015. I began my career as an assistant at a general dentistry practice. I joined the Kidzania team in 2016. I quickly learned the joy of working in pediatrics. In my time off, I enjoy spending time with my family and helping with my younger siblings.
I graduated with the class of 2015 from North Side high school. I attended TCC for two years, and recently began working at Kidzania Pediatric Dentistry. Being the oldest of seven, working around and with children is second nature to me.
