Aisha Akpabio, DDS
The profession of dentistry is my passion. I have dedicated almost half to my life towards pursuing, learning, enhancing, and practicing dentistry. I really enjoy serving others, and dentistry is one avenue that allows me to serve the needs of people in my community. It also allows me to express many of my characteristics including attention to detail, creativity, mindfulness, and even humor!
I have a strong passion for treating children, which only increased once I became a mother. I take pride in making people feel comfortable at the dentist, as dentistry can cause anxiety or even fear in many individuals, regardless of their age.
Education and Experience
I began my journey in dentistry immediately after high school, attending the University of Michigan for my Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene. Continuing at U of M, I earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery. I completed my General Practice Residency at Bronx Lebanon Hospital in New York. I have been practicing as a dentist for eight years in New York City, Los Angeles, and now in my hometown of Detroit.
Outside the Office
When I’m not in the office, I find great joy being in the presence of my family and friends. I have a very close support system; either they are helping me or I am helping them!
I am also an extremely active member in my church, Greater Works Ministries. At the church, I am an executive assistant and I help where ever is needed. Another community program that I am very proud of and closely affiliated with is a non-profit in the city of Detroit called Let’s Go Detroit, which is focused on improving the City of Detroit through volunteering and donation efforts.
