Each member of our dental staff is highly trained and committed to providing the best dental health care possible.


Dental Office Manager

Hello there! I’m Aziza, Office Manager at Scottsdale Family Dentistry and Orthodontics.

I’m originally from Morocco and have been here for 20 years. I’ve been married to an amazing husband from Bosnia and we both have an 18-year-old daughter who is attending ASU to enter the medical field.

My first job was as a dental assistant in Chicago 13 years ago and I’m a graduate of Apollo College in Phoenix for Dental Assisting (x-ray certified) as well as 2 years of college for computer science at Casablanca University.

I believe that patient education starts in the front office, then goes back to the back office where the patient rooms are, and finally ends up in the front office. I educate patients about their dental insurance coverage, and make sure they don’t get any financial surprises for services. We are a very friendly team to work with, honest and care about our patients.

In my spare time and home time, I’m always cooking new recipes, entertaining friends and family and traveling.



Hygiene Assistant

I got my CDA from Carrington college in 2013. I am passionate about the education for people and the care of their mouth. Working as a dental assistant and hygiene assistant allows me, to be versatile in my ability to help people understand, the procedures, and how caring for your mouth is important.
In my spare time I love to read, watch movies, and trying new things.  



Front Desk

Hi! I’m Meryem Abbadi, Front Desk Receptionist at Scottsdale Dental. I chose the field of dentistry as a career because I grew up around it. My mom was a dental office manager for 20+ years. Being introduced to dentistry at a very young age, I found passion in it.

My mom is from Morocco and my stepdad is Montenegrin. They live in Chicago with my younger brother and sister. I grew up in Chicago and went to Oakton Community College and NLU University.

I currently live in Arizona with my cousin, aunt and uncle and couldn’t have wished to be happier living with them. My hobbies include playing with makeup, especially doing cool gruesome looking makeup (as well as beautiful-looking makeup), and cooking. In the past for two whole years I used to do kickboxing, MMA, and cheerleading back-to-back.

I’ve been a Front Desk Receptionist for four years now and my favorite part of helping patients is seeing the smile on their faces when they come in and I greet them.

My job requires me to stay up to date with new technology and new insurance types, and this is important because it helps both our office and our patients. If someone doesn’t have dental insurance, I’m the one that can offer them our Smiles Saving Plan or Care Credit options to help them with the costs.

Patients benefit from me being on the team because I verify their insurance so they don’t have to pay out-of-pocket for service that they are entitled to. I’m also the friendly reminder person on the phone for appointments and scheduling.
