Meet Dr. Ahmed

drahmed“Providing great dentistry is more than placing the perfect restoration in the most comfortable way. Making a meaningful connection with each and every one of my patients is important to me.”
– Dr. Ahmed

Education/Experience

Originally from Tampa, Florida, Dr. Ahmed completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Miami. She left sunny Florida for Ohio State University College of Dentistry, which makes her a “Hurricane Buckeye!” Upon graduating in 1998, she went on to complete the Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) program at Miami Valley Hospital where she served as chief resident.

Dr. Ahmed’s husband is originally from Springfield and together they are raising two boys. In her free time, Dr, Ahmed enjoys fitness, traveling, and cooking. In fact, she is known to make a mean guacamole and is always encouraging her children and staff to sample new foods. Eventually, Dr. Ahmed hopes to add an NSD food truck that serves delicious, nutritious, and interesting foods, near the office!

Ask her team to describe her and they would say, “Her dentistry is gifted and her taste buds unique. She has a contagious spirit and an adventurous heart, and that is why we love her!”
