The greatest gratification for Dr. Altayib is providing kindness in her care and “removing pain from the equation.” She loves utilizing the experience she has gained over the years, along with her natural artistic instinct and evidence-based dentistry, to resolve the most difficult challenges her patients face. While Dr. Altayib likes providing all kinds of dental services, she really enjoys performing oral surgery procedures.
