Dr. Homam (il-bugh-dadi) Albaghdadi
Meet doctor Homam (il-bugh-dadi) Albaghdadi, a University of Toronto graduate with a phonetically impossible last name, but a broadcast-worthy voice. An academic at heart and published author, he obtained a Masters in Immunology and dabbled in cancer imaging research prior to his dental training. And if 13 years of research and higher education isn’t punishment enough, he completed a rigorous residency program at Mount Sinai Hospital, and currently finds himself pursuing a Masters in Health Professions Education part-time.
Homam’s fascination with dentistry peaked after his orthodontic treatment transformed his smile as an adolescent. He is a calm, passionate clinician who is keen on curating an experience for his patients and building enduring rapport; “I just want it to feel like a fun hang out!” he said, when asked about his relationship with patients. He is known for his light hand and attention to the minutiae of details. Ask him about his quirky obsessions for a good laugh.
He is an avid cyclist, a Choi Lee Fut Kung fu pupil, and loves creative writing, and eclectic music. Oh, and he is OBSSESSED with shoes.
