Oral Implantology & Orthodontics

Dr. Senan Najar, DDS
Originally from Manhattan, Kansas, Dr. Najar’s dental career began in 2003 after earning a Doctorate of Dental Surgery with high honors. After a few years of practicing dentistry, he spent two years completing a residency in the field of Operative Dentistry and earning a Master’s of Science in Dentistry (MSD) from Indiana University in 2009. In further commitment to advance education, 2014 found Dr. Najar in Munster, Germany with a Master’s of Science in Specialized Orthodontics from the International Medical School.

By pursuing advanced degrees and training, Dr. Najar’s practice spans from essential care to full smile makeovers. He is an expert in the fields of implant dentistry and its related prosthetic treatments, complete mouth rehabilitation, and orthodontics. His advanced education in orthodontics is an essential tool that can be used for treating complex implant and restorative cases.

In his own words, “It is humbling to have a career that allows me to do what I love: work with my hands, meet new people, make other’s smile, and positively affect others around me. I like meeting my patients for the first time and hearing their stores about why they sought us out for care.”

In the Office

Professionally, Dr. Najar finds it essential to keep up to date with the latest technology in the field. That is why his office utilizes an advanced CBCT x-ray that not only takes a 3D image of the jaw, but of the airway. It is why Dr. Najar gets the best fit for his Invisalign cases and porcelain crowns by using an iTero digital scanner. It is why he invested in an EKG monitor to offer the safest possible sedation dentistry to his patients. Dr. Najar uses these tools to help patients achieve the SMILE they have always wanted.


Outside the Office

Dr. Najar considers himself lucky to call Bellingham, Washington home where he lives with his wife Sura, and children Mariam and Yousif. Mariam has recently started playing basketball and Dr. Najar loves to be a team dad and to watch the games. Outside work, his interests include attending social and community events, traveling, and hiking. An avid outdoor photographer, you can see his work of the beautiful PNW adorning the walls of Diamond Dental. On summer weekends you can find Dr. Najar camping with the family.

I visited many dentists in this area and none of them have staff as friendly as those at Diamond Dental. They're always good to reassure me if I have any questions and always make sure that I'm comfortable.
