Dr. Subea Hijazi has had a passion for biology and helping others since he was in high school. You could say he’s following the family business as his sister completed a post graduate program in Endodontics, and his other sister graduated from a top rated dental college. This really gave him a wide view of the industry, and lead to the opportunities that would lie ahead.
Dr. Subea Hijazi graduated 2nd in his class, obtaining a DDS in 2003 from Albaath University. This was just the beginning of a long and very enthusiastic scholastic journey. Particularly for oral and maxillofacial surgery which lead to a higher education specialty program at Damascus University, finishing in 2006. His hunger for knowledge and research in general dentistry, oral surgery, and TMD (temporomandibular disorders) pushed him even further to contribute directly to the field with multiple theses. Each educational contribution varied, ranging from clinical, radiographical, and theoretical works that resulted in two International Masters Degrees in 2009. Traveling abroad and helping people from different cultures have taught him the gravity of qualities like patience, communication, and taking the time to truly empathize with each patient.
When not pursuing dreams in dentistry, most of his free time is filled with sports, reading, traveling, and volunteering. Participating in as many community events as his schedule will allow. Differing from helping the environment, and even going so far as to assist on a global scale in the recent events in Syria. Combined, each of these experiences remind him of the gravity of something so simple…a smile. Few understand how something so simple, can make such an impact on others.
Dr. Brad Albertson was born and raised in Bettendorf, Iowa, along the Mississippi River. He completed his undergraduate education at the University of Iowa and his dental education at the University of Iowa College of Dentistry and Dental Clinics. He was enticed by the ability to make a significant impact on the lives of his patients by helping them achieve an amazing smile, so he was naturally drawn to the field of orthodontics. After spending the majority of his life in Iowa, he decided that it was time for him to explore more of the country, so he went on to complete his orthodontics training at the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco, California. Dr. Albertson is an active member of the orthodontics community and has presented his research at the national AAO (American Association of Orthodontics) conference. Additionally, one of his Invisalign cases was selected as a second-place winner in a competition at the 2018 Invisalign Summit.
Outside of the office, he enjoys watching movies and has seen every movie on the American Film Institute’s list of Top 100 Movies. He enjoys traveling and has loved the chance to move somewhere outside of his comfort zone and see what the area has to offer. Moving to California gave him the opportunity to explore new hobbies, such as skiing and hiking. He also became an adventurous eater and loves trying new types of food. He is excited to see what the Austin area holds in store for him!
