Hi, my name is Anas Athar and I’m honored to be your partner and orthodontist. I first became interested in dentistry as a child, but as I grew up, it turned into a passion the moment I realized what a big difference a dentist and specially an orthodontist can make in people’s lives. This drove me to meticulously study orthodontics, after completing my dental school I did my extensive orthodontic training at Saint Louis University. I am the only dual trained Oral and Maxillofacial Radiologist and Orthodontist here in Texas.
Striving to consistently utilize the most leading-edge technology for my patients, I’m a leading Clear Aligner Provider who also specializes in various advanced imaging modalities like Cone Beam CT. At the end of the day, there is nothing more important to me than providing the newest and safest treatments for my patients so they can smile proudly no matter where they go.
One of the most rewarding aspects of my profession is how genuinely happy my patients are when their treatment is completed, and their beautiful new smiles are revealed. I’m also glad to see once-fearful patients excited to sit in the chair and strike up casual conversations with me. I would do anything and adapt any technology, new or old, that will produce best results for my patients.
During my 20+ years of being in the dentistry field, I have recognized by numerous awards. I’ve also been blessed with the opportunity to visit faculty at reputable dental schools nationally and internationally and feature at numerous national and international seminars. This keeps me up to date with new developments in orthodontics.
While I’m grateful to call Dallas, Texas home, I also like exploring new places just as much. When I’m not traveling, I love playing cricket and learning new things. Being the family man that I am, I enjoy spending as much quality time as possible with my loved ones. I am happily married to my lovely wife Samia and we are the proud parents of three beautiful children named Amna, Mustafa, and Maryam. Samia, Amna, Mustafa, and Maryam are my world and they inspire me to be my best version daily for the greater good of my patients, my community, and the world at large.
Dr. Saleem earned his DMD degree at Temple University School of Dentistry, from which he graduated in 2008. After completing the program at this premier institution, Dr. Saleem moved to the Dallas area. With his family by his side, he began his career as a general dentist. Since 2008, he has advanced his education with numerous training courses. Dr. Saleem is an active member of the Modern Study Club which engages with other dentists and specialists to help him provide state-of-the-art dentistry.
Patients see very quickly that Dr. Saleem provides care with the utmost respect and compassion. He delivers care to patients in the same manner he would to his family, making dentistry an enjoyable and comfortable routine.
Dr. Saleem and his wife have two young children who keep them busy. He likes running, golfing, reading, and enjoying time with his family.
"My family loves Dr. Athar! He is the sweetest orthodontist in town. His staff is wonderful. I would HIGHLY recommend him if you are in need of an orthodontist! (Or if you just want to meet a really great guy!)"
"My wife had braces for 3 years trying to close her front teeth. Other docs said it wouldn’t happen because of her age, and the gap was way too wide, but 6 months with Dr Athar, the gap sealed, teeth straightened, and she got her smile back."
"The best dentist in town! Dr. Adnan made such great dentures for my mom. He worked so hard throughout the treatment process from extraction till dentures! He is very competent, honest and a great human being with such a golden heart! We love you Dr. Adnan and we respect you! I would highly recommend Dr. Adnan for all dental work!"
"My kids love Dr. Athar and his staff! Their teeth look great too!"
