    Ahmad Ahmad, DMD

    Graduating magna cum laude from the elite Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine as a leader of his clinical class, Dr. Ahmad Ahmad is an absolute professional in all facets of dental care. Dr. Ahmad has performed thousands of procedures, ranging from general family dentistry to advanced cosmetic treatments for in-need patients.

    During his career, Dr. Ahmad has made the betterment of others a key priority for his work. Recently, he completed a volunteering expedition to Honduras, providing dental care to impoverished people, many of whom had never seen a dentist before. The need to give back to his community was a value passed onto him by his parents, who are his biggest supporters. Dr. Ahmad’s father passed recently from preventable cardiac disease — an event that fueled Dr. Ahmad’s passion for preventive, systemic forms of health care.

    When Dr. Ahmad is not providing world-class dental care, you can find him on the golf course or telling jokes to his lovely wife, Suzanne — who is the light of his world. Dr. Ahmad uses his considerable skill, training, and sense of personal responsibility to provide patients with not only industry-leading health care but also an “overall health experience” that is compassionate, effective, and above all, fun.

    Omar Ali, DMD

    Dr. Omar Ali is a graduate of the prestigious Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, where he was a leader among his clinical class with a special focus in implants and high-end cosmetic treatments. It was during college that he met his wife, Donna, while they both sat on the executive board of a social equity organization, promoting volunteerism, charity and outreach.

    It is Dr. Ali’s compassionate nature that led him to Gibson City Hospital, where he still treats patients twice a week as the clinical director of the dental health clinic. There, he provides care for the low- income community with limited access to dental assistance.

    Dr. Ali recently welcomed his first daughter, Nida (named after his mother), and is watching with pride as his wife, Donna, completes her dental training at Midwestern University. Dr. Ali is a fervent Chicago sports fan and loves to travel — his most recent adventure took him to Venice, Italy. Dr. Omar Ali is a top-tier dental practitioner with a flair for the artistic and love for serving the community.
