Meet Dr. Suliman
“What I love most about orthodontics is the tremendous impact we have on both children and adults’ lives as we create wonderful smiles. It is very rewarding watching children blossom with their new smiles as they transform into young confident adults!” – Dr Shameela Suliman
About Dr. Shameela Suliman
Dr Suliman’s passion for orthodontics began at a young age. She knew when she was just a teen in braces herself, that this was her career of choice. As soon as you meet Dr. Suliman, you’ll see that she not only loves being an orthodontist, but she wants to be the absolute best – settling for nothing less than excellence. Dr Suliman’s practice philosophy is geared towards an intimate practice where she can give each patient personalized individual service with consistent care; using the highest quality orthodontic materials together with state-of-the-art technology.
Dr Suliman graduated as a dentist from The University of Pretoria, (South Africa), where she was always at the top of the Dean’s Merit List. Graduating at the top of her dental class with the highest honors (Summa Cum Laude status), her exceptional achievement won her the The Gold Medal of the South African Dental Association that is recognized nationally as the highest undergraduate award in the faculty of dentistry. Ranked as the country’s top dental graduate, she gained the competitive edge needed towards achieving her dream, acceptance into a much sought after orthodontic specialty post. The University of The Western Cape granted her almost immediate acceptance in an orthodontic residency training program.
After graduating, Dr Suliman moved to Windhoek, Namibia where she continues to practice as a full time Orthodontic Specialist in Private Practice.
Dr Suliman describes herself as a “perpetual student”. This unquenchable & insatiable thirst for knowledge resulted in Dr Suliman being awarded the highest award achieved by an Orthodontist – The Fellowship in Orthodontics from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland in December 2018. In August 2019, Dr Suliman was once again awarded The Fellowship in Dental Surgery from the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Glasgow.
Dr Suliman believes in the wisdom behind the age old adage “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others”. Giving back to her community is her way of saying “Thank You” for choosing her practice, and for entrusting her with your smile and your oral health
Giving Back To The Community
Dr Suliman’s orthodontic practice was founded on three simple principles: to change lives, advance her profession and support the community. These principles have been put into action not only through products and services, but also through direct involvement in the community.
Dr Suliman’s orthodontic team has a reputation for responding to the community’s needs throughout the year. Whether it’s helping fellow co-workers, donating resources to the underserved or volunteering countless hours in the community, we are constantly giving back.
