After graduating from dental school, Dr. Potts wasn't content with confining himself to general family dentistry. He began post-graduate training in several specialized areas.
Anxious to make fearful patients comfortable, he pursued training in sedation dentistry, enough to be able to become Fellow in the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation. He has also studied complex restorative dentistry and the placement and restoration of dental implants.
Dr. Mahmood, who grew up in Iraq, attended dental school in Baghdad. Before she could finish, she had to flee to Egypt to try to complete her education. She then came to the United States.
She ended up graduating from the Rutgers School of Dental Medicine in New Jersey. Since then, she has acquired a particular interest in cosmetic dentistry, where she loves to blend art and science to create beautiful results for her patients.
