Dr. Dinkha wanted to be a dentist ever since she was 5 years old and living in Iraq; at 20, she came to the U.S. as a war refugee, learning English (her third language, after Arabic and Assyrian) and graduating at the top of her dental-school class. She now owns her own practice and has completed mission trips to the Caribbean and Guatemala. She also regularly volunteers at clinics in greater Chicago.
“I convert extreme phobic patients to regular patients who need no sedation. This is life-changing for them and very satisfying for me. My practice has a special emphasis on creating a uniquely comfortable and soothing environment for the patient, approaching that of a spa.”
Tool They Can’t Live Without
“My loupes and my camera. Without my magnification, I cannot see details when fixing teeth to achieve perfect smiles. I also love to use my Canon Camera to capture before-and-after smiles.”
Something People Don’t Know
In her free time, you’ll find Dr. Dinkha cooking, baking or biking with her husband of 15 years and their three children.
