Milwaukee Muslim surgeon’s clinic reflects pillars of Islam

The Yomi® Robotic System is the first robot-assisted dental implant surgery machine. In addition to providing a detailed blueprint of your teeth and jaws, Yomi® also works to guide Dr. Khader as she accurately places the implant and allows immediate and precise adjustments during your implant placement surgery.

Khader taught dental students at Tufts and later the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry. She’s worked at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, Froedtert Hospital of Wisconsin and continues to see patients at the Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center several days a week.

She is certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and has been a diplomate of the board since 2013.

Currently, she serves as a director for the Wisconsin Dental Association Foundation Board of Directors, and is the immediate past president of the Wisconsin Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.

It seems everything has prepared her for her biggest project yet – her own clinic.

The Community Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery clinic located in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward, is modern, high-tech and equipped with specialized robotic equipment to assist in surgeries. Services include tooth extractions to more advanced surgeries like correcting abnormalities in the jaw.

The clinic is the only office in Wisconsin to offer Yomi® robot-assisted dental implant surgery. The staff includes an experienced nurse and everyone on the team is well-trained to handle emergencies.

Things that make Khader different go beyond her exceptional surgical skills and medical knowledge. Her practice is an extension of the life she hopes to live as a contemporary Muslim woman, mother and wife.

One of the best things about Islam is Zakat, Khader says. “If people really abide by that, there will be no poverty anywhere.”

This doctor is committed to working with patients who other surgeons turn away because of low-paying insurance or other financial issues.

The clinic’s mission includes a commitment to patient service with compassion and equity. Khader also wants to innovate with more state of the art technology to further improve patient outcomes. Finally, in three to five years, she hopes to convert her business to an employee-owned clinic.

Khader firmly believes in empowering people. By helping her team become fiscally secure and giving them the ability to contribute to the governance of the clinic, the clinic will operate at the highest level and provide outstanding care.
