Dr Haitham Omar

Specialist Orthodontist

We welcomed Dr Haitham Omar to the team at Glebe Dental Group in 2019 expanding services offered with his specialised skills as a Specialist Orthodontist.

Haitham grew up in Sydney before his parents moved to Egypt for approximately 10 years. On his return he completed high school in the Hills area prior to completing his Bachelor of Dental Surgery with second class honours at the University of Sydney.

Haitham then worked as a private general dentist in the picturesque Glenbrook (Lower Blue Mountains) and at Lansvale for a period of six years. During this time, he married his beautiful wife Salwah. They enjoyed travelling and site seeing before he embarked on further study in the Masters of Dental Science (Orthodontics) at the University of Sydney. They were gifted with their first two children (Shehab and Shada) during the busy three-year course, before graduating in 2005. Two years later they had their third child, Moustafa.

Despite the busy practice and family life, Haitham enjoys playing soccer and an occasional game of tennis. He particularly enjoys the involvement with his children’s sports team activities, whether it be soccer, basketball, cycling, tennis or karate. Haitham loves travelling which he hopes to do more of as the kids continue to grow.
