Meet Our Team
Abdulaziz Dudeen, DDS
Dr. Abdulaziz Dudeen grew up in Jordan, and decided at the young age of 17 that dentistry was for him. Dr. Dudeen graduated from Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California in 2012 and began his career at LOL Dental & Orthodontics shortly after. His favorite part about being a dentist is making a difference in patients lives, watching them come into the office with a problem and leaving with a confident smile. Dr. Dudeen loves the community and helping where he can.
When he is not working on beautiful smiles, you can find Dr. Dudeen on the soccer field!
Khaled Shalaby, DDS, MSCS, BDS
Dr. Khaled Shalaby grew up in a house of doctors and surgeons and always felt drawn to the medical field. One of their family friends was his dentist, and everything the young Dr. Shalaby saw at his office made him more and more interested in the field. Once the dentist started calling him the young dentist of the clinic, he knew he would follow through with dentistry. Dr. Shalaby began by earning a BDS in 2003 from Ain Shams University Egypt then a Master’s degree in Oral Surgery in 2010 before graduating with a DDS from the University of Minnesota in 2019.
Dr. Shalaby loves everything about dentistry, especially his interactions with people and watching them become happier and healthier. He loves the patient diversity, where he can see patients from six months to one hundred years old.
Outside of the office, Dr. Shalaby enjoys spending time with his beautiful loving wife and his three amazing children, he also is passionate about traveling and his main hobby is swimming.
