Dr. Alam grew up in Dubai, U.A.E., where during her high school years — with the positive influence of her family dentist — she first realized she, too, wanted to be a dentist. She became a foreign qualified dentist before moving to the United States. Once in the U.S., she continued her dental education for another four years at the U.N.C. School of Dentistry in Chapel Hill, NC. Since graduating 15 years ago, she has enjoyed growing her career as a provider and taking continuing education that keeps her abreast of the latest and greatest that dentistry has to offer.
As a dentist, Dr. Alam believes in treating people like she would want to be treated. Her deep compassion for others has made her passionate about helping anxious patients feel comfortable, and she works diligently to help them overcome any fear of the dentist. She is also dedicated to helping every one of her patients eliminate dental decay and tries to provide the necessary guidance to help them maintain the coveted cavity-free status.
Dr. Alam enjoys spending time with her family. Her favorite activities include hiking, biking, and trips to the beach.
