As one of Greater Houston’s most respected dental specialists, it was imperative for Dr. Matthew Gemp to find the right dentist to partner with. Dr. El-Kheir (pronounced El Care) was a perfect match — a like-minded dentist with an unwavering passion for providing high-quality dentistry, pursuing endless continuing education, and practicing extraordinary patient care.
Equally important, Dr. El-Kheir felt the same. After all, moving from Pennsylvania to Houston wasn’t something he took lightly. With encouragement and support from his family, he sold his thriving private practice, adopted out his beloved Arabian horses, and headed to Texas to partner with Dr. Gemp.
“Practicing with Dr. Gemp is incredibly rewarding,” Dr. El-Kheir says. “He’s well-respected, and we share the same approach.”
“Dr. El-Kheir is an extremely talented dentist,” says Dr. Gemp, a leading prosthodontist and pioneer in dental implants. “We work closely together and regularly share information and ideas about complex cases.”
Meet Dr. El-Kheir, Extraordinary Dentist, Family Man, Horse Lover
Dr. Mohammed El-Kheir is new to Houston but not to dentistry. He was accepted into four dental schools, including Boston University, and chose Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine. After receiving his DDS in 1993, he completed a 12-month Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) program before entering into practice in 1994. He opened his own private practice in 2001.
“I love helping people, being creative and working with my hands, learning new things, and playing a vital role in the community. Dentistry is a great fit for me,” Dr. El-Kheir shares.
His unique brand of quality dentistry and patient care didn’t go unnoticed. In 2012, he was recognized as a Time Magazine best doctor and dentist. Dedicated to lifelong learning, Dr. El-Kheir remains at the cutting-edge of dentistry through rigorous continuing education — a commitment he shares with Dr. Gemp. Both dentists stay current on the latest advances in technique, technology, and materials.
Dr. El-Kheir and his wife are the proud parents of five children. Three are in college, and two are in high school. The eldest is an aspiring dentist.
Dentistry With a Difference
Expect only the best from this modern dental practice that combines advanced dentistry and state-of-the-art technologies with friendly, patient-centered care. Services include everything from family and preventive dentistry to FASTBRACES®, dental implants, laser dentistry, full mouth restorations, and breathtaking one-of-a-kind smile makeovers.
The practice even has an in-office lab staffed with seven lab technicians. “Everything is made onsite except temporaries,” Dr. Gemp explains. “This gives us complete quality control.”
New patients come to Evolution Dentistry because of its stellar reputation. They leave having found their new dental home. “Every patient has a story and a reason to see us. We listen and build lasting relationships with them,” says. Dr. Gemp.
Dr. El-Kheir adds, “We take our patients’ best interest to heart, create a bond with them built on trust and honesty, and give them the confidence to make knowledge-based decisions about their dental care. We talk about what’s available, what will meet their needs, explain the new technologies we use, and review viable options. We’re open and honest. We don’t sugar coat things, and we don’t exaggerate or try to talk patients into something they don’t need.”
Both dentists point out that with larger cases such as full mouth restorations or extensive smile makeovers, not everything has to be done at once. They’ll handle emergent problems first, including gum disease, and then develop a phased treatment plan and roadmap.
“Our patients get to test drive their new smile and wear it before we create permanent restorations in our lab,” Dr. Gemp says. “Seeing your new smile simulated on a computer screen is good, but you can’t beat wearing it first.”
It Takes a Team
Drs. Gemp and El-Kheir rave about the practice’s dental team. “You’re only as good as your support team, and ours is phenomenal,” Dr. Gemp says. “Everyone has been with the practice for years.” Dr. El-Kheir adds, “Patients love seeing the same friendly faces at each visit. We’ve established real connections with our patients and enjoy visiting with them as well as providing great dentistry.”
