Dr. Rasheed then completed additional requirements to achieve Diplomate status within the American Board of Periodontology.

Dr. Rasheed says, “As their periodontist, I want them to view me as personable and always know I’m willing to listen to their needs and concerns. The best form of treatment is when the patient and provider are on the same page. I believe that comes with clear communication. Whatever your goals are, I will diligently make sure WE can achieve them together. Dentistry, specifically Periodontics is the perfect union of interacting with people while at the same time providing a needed service. There is nothing more gratifying when I get a hug, high five, or simply a smile, when patients come to me and explain how happy they are with the services they received!”
Dr. Rasheed enjoys the outdoors, whether it’s hiking, running, skiing, kayaking or golfing. He’s an avid martial arts enthusiast, a second degree black belt Tae Kwon Do and currently trains in Muay Thai kickboxing.
