Meet Dr. Ashoty
Dr. Reemon Yousif Ashoty (pronounced Ah-SHOW-TEE) is a proud Iraqi American who was born and raised in the heart of Baghdad, Iraq. His residence was on the famous Haifa Street, where, the late American Sniper and SEAL Chris Kyle described the area in his book as being extremely dangerous in 2005 and 2006. Despite the dangers and constant threats related to being a Christian living in Baghdad, he earned his first Dental Degree in 2006 from The University of Baghdad, College of Dentistry. Dr. Ashoty made the most of his opportunities to practice dentistry in the private practice. Unable to continue to live in Iraq under increasing hostility, Dr. Ashoty entered the second chapter in his journey to the United States via Cairo, Egypt where he was again in private practice. Finally in 2009, Dr. Ashoty had the opportunity to complete his journey to the United States.
Dr. Ashoty first met Dr. Estes in 2010. Dr. Estes immediately saw Dr. Ashoty’s enormous potential and encouraged him to prepare for matriculation into an American dental school, so that he could continue to practice dentistry in the United States. Earning high marks on his Part 1 and Part 2 National Board Dental Examinations, Dr. Ashoty had his choice of several dental school programs for his doctoral degree. Dr. Ashoty chose The University of California, Los Angeles, School of Dentistry and earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree in 2014.
Since graduation, Dr. Ashoty returned to Dallas, Texas so that he can spend more time with his family and friends. Upon his return to Texas, he began practicing in a large, fast-paced private practice and has been looking to become a member of a family practice. Timing is everything, and it just so happened that Oak Dental Frisco became ready to grow to a two-doctor office in March of 2015. Dr. Estes has graciously accepted Dr. Ashoty as a full-member of Oak Dental Frisco and is proud to open the office six days a week with two evenings to continue to meet the ever-increasing needs of our fast-growing community.
Professionally, Dr. Ashoty is a member of the American Dental Association, Texas Dental Association, The North Texas Dental Society, The Academy of General Dentistry, The Texas Academy of General Dentistry, and the Dallas Academy of General Dentistry. In his free time Dr. Ashoty loves playing and watching sports to include soccer and basketball and cheers the Mavericks, Rangers, FC Dallas and Cowboys.
