Dr. Dina Khoury
It is with great pleasure that we announce the addition of Dr. Dina Khoury to our practice. Dr. Khoury is a graduate of the University of Michigan School of Dentistry (1995). After her studies, she served our Veterans during her residency at the VA Hospital in Dayton Ohio. Dr. Khoury has been in private practice for over 20 years, the majority of which have been spent serving the Rochester community. She enjoys treating patients of all ages, and has a passion for cosmetic dentistry. Living in Rochester Hills with her husband, Dr. Erik Hanby, and their two children Gabriel and Natalie, she is an active member of the community. In her spare time she enjoys running outdoors, spending time at her cottage in northern Michigan, and traveling.
I have been bouncing around to dentists' offices for the past four years trying to find one that (1) doesn't hurt my face and mouth and (2) doesn't gross me out. My most recent dentist prior to Dr. Aurelia reeked of smoke and insisted on not wearing gloves when he fit my bite guard because otherwise it wouldn't fit properly. After that disgusting experience, I was out of there and dentist-less once again. I came across some Google reviews for Dr. Auerlia and thought I'd give his office a try. At the very least, it couldn't be worse than the last guy, right?
Even though Dr. Aurelia is out of network for my insurance, his office is well worth the extra out of pocket cost. His office got me in for an initial consult almost immediately because I had some pain concerns. They identified the issues right away and helped me get into a specialist for (another) root canal (on the same tooth - the horror!) the next day. I needed a filling in between my two front teeth and he was able to do the filling without novocain and I didn't feel a thing. I have my first cleaning next week so I will find out then how efficient they are with that (it took 90 solid minutes of my mouth being agape at my last dentist which is way too long), which is my last area of general wonderment about the quality of services provided. I can't imagine I'll need to find a new dentist anytime soon. If you are looking for an office full of helpful and friendly people and want high-quality, timely, and cost-conscious (i.e., won't do unnecessary work to get more monies) dental care, I highly recommend checking out Dr. Aurelia's office.
