Your Glendale, AZ Orthodontist

Meet Dr. Hoda Salim

Dr. Salim has been interested in the field of dentistry since she was a kid. She grew up working in her parents’ dental office and had some amazing mentors that helped her find her true calling. While in dental school she took her first orthodontics course and from there she knew that she wanted to pursue orthodontics as her specialty. She found that the combination of esthetics, physics, and biology was the perfect fit for her. It was not until she started practicing that she truly realized the impact orthodontics has on an individual’s life. This has only increased her passion for the field.

Dr. Hoda Salim
Her favorite thing about practicing orthodontics is the bond she builds with her patients over the course of their treatment. She loves seeing the change in her patient’s confidence and seeing them smile from ear to ear.
Dr. Salim’s goal is for her patients to enjoy their orthodontic experience and for them to feel comfortable, confident, and educated.

Meet Dr. Steven Sabatino

Dr. Steven Sabatino has been practicing orthodontics here in the Arrowhead, Phoenix, and Scottsdale areas since 1987. He attended the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee for his undergraduate studies and was accepted into Marquette University’s School of Dentistry at the age of 20. Two years into his dental school training, he set his goals on becoming an orthodontist. Upon graduation from Marquette School of Dentistry, he worked part time on the faculty at the dental school and as a family dentist. One year later, he returned to Marquette University to earn a specialty degree in orthodontics.

After completing his Master’s degree and specialty certificate in May of 1987, Dr. Sabatino moved to Phoenix, Arizona. It is here that for over 19 years, he helped build a multi-orthodontist, multi location practice while attending advanced continuing education courses across the United States.
On April 19, 2006, Dr. Sabatino made the decision to focus his individual orthodontic practice more on one-on-one patient treatment, staff motivation and development, and improved communication with referring doctors. Dr. Sabatino’s 30 plus years of dental experience and his detailed communication with your family dentist will help you achieve your smile potential and ideal jaw function and comfort.
