BIO: DR NABEEL CAJEE
Born and raised in San Joaquin County, Dr. Cajee is proud to care for patients in the community he cares much about. He is a Fellow in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists who is constantly updating his skills in computer guided surgeries including minimally invasive wisdom teeth removal, dental implants, and sinus lifts.
He completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry Residency at Highland Hospital, the San Francisco East Bay’s regional trauma center. Dr. Cajee trained in oral surgery and comprehensive dentistry seeing medically compromised patients and emergency cases in the operating room and the hospital’s outpatient clinic. He received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of the Pacific Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco, during which time he received additional surgical training with the Indian Health Service in Oklahoma. Passionate about mentorship, as a student he was appointed by the Assistant Dean for Academic Affairs to lead a team of 32 tutors to support instruction of the Pacific Dugoni Helix Curriculum’s 1st year core medical sciences and pre-clinical dental sciences. Dr. Cajee now teaches basic and advanced suturing techniques to dentists (www.suture.co) and is a member of the faculty at University of the Pacific.

Coming from a family of health care providers, Dr. Cajee believes patient comfort comes first.
FLOSSOPHY OF CARE
My goal: I want you to eat an apple when you are 100 years old.
“People today can expect to live longer today than ever before. What does that mean to me as a dentist? The ability to eat well into your advanced age will most likely have one of the largest impacts on your quality of life. As we age, our teeth do too! And as our dental & medical problems get more complex as we age, invasive procedures to restore function of eating become more difficult to manage for both the patient and the doctor.
What does that mean for us today? Let's look at your overall health (consult your physicians if we have to) and your current oral health and work together to customize maintainable dental treatment so you benefit from a lifetime of oral health.”
