Dr. Marwan Al Hashimi
Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS)

My name is Dr. Marwan Al Hashimi, I am from the U.A.E. and I a graduate of Texila American University. I am currently specializing as a Master of Endodontics in Dubai, U.A.E., my country and home. I studied in Guyana at TAU and have nothing but good memories of the country and the experience with TAU.

My most valuable experience is the clinical knowledge that I have gained and a critical thinking that pushed me to "think outside the box". The journey was tough and tiring but I came out of it a very competent, respected and sought after dentist in the U.A.E. Thank you TAU for the journey!
