Dr. Ebrahim is a 1994 graduate of the University Of Louisville School Of Dentistry. After graduation she did a hospital based General Practice Dental Residency at the University Of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center. In the summer of 1995, Dr. Ebrahim was appointed as the Chief Dental Resident. During her residency she gained a great deal of experience in complex restorative and cosmetic work, implants, working with children and the elderly and medically compromised patients. She also supervised junior residents and taught in the dental school.
After the completion of her residency, Dr. Ebrahim returned to her birthplace, Zimbabwe in Southern Africa. She joined a prestigious practice in Harare, the capital, and worked alongside her childhood dentist. However, her heart was still in United States. Her husband, Mark (then her finance), who she met in school in 1990, was in East Lansing doing his residency in General Surgery. In December of 1997, Dr. Ebrahim returned to the United States and joined Dr. Hartz, Dr. Boike and the wonderful talented staff at Great Lakes Family Dental Group.
Dentistry for her has been and continues to be so rewarding on so many levels. Helping patients overcome their fears, giving patients the smiles that they have always wanted, relieving pain, treating infections, aiding patients in giving up harmful habits and of course the relationships she has developed with our wonderful patients, is why Dr. Ebrahim loves what she does.
When she is not in the office she is a busy mom of two delightful girls. She enjoys volunteering at their school. Dr. Ebrahim also loves gardening, traveling and spending time with her husband, friends and family.
