Born in Fairfax, Virginia, Dr. Mazen Sultan lived in a wide variety of states and countries growing up. From Texas and Chicago to Bahrain in the Persian Gulf. He feels that his experiences in these places has helped him learn and understand different cultures. As an undergraduate, Dr. Sultan attended SIU-Edwardsville. He then went to Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine. From there, he completed a General Practice Residency at the University of Louisville where he was educated in advanced and complex dental treatment. After working some time in private practice, he went on to do an Implant Fellowship, where he learned to place and restore dental implants.
Dr. Sultan and his wife, Hana, were recently blessed with a baby girl, Serene Sultan. Dr. Sultan will tell you his father is his biggest hero. In his words his father was a man who started with very little and came from a house with little resources. He worked very hard, never complained, and never made excuses. Dr. Sultan learned from his father that eventually hard work does pay off.
In his free time Dr. Sultan has several hobbies. He enjoys outdoor activities, like hiking and running. Whenever he can, he plays soccer, which he played semi-professionally. His favorite tv shows and movies include everything from Harry Potter to Grey’s Anatomy, and he is an avid Dallas Cowboys fan. Dr. Sultan will tell you if he wasn’t a doctor, he’d own a restaurant, as he has a passion for food and being in the customer service industry.
Dr. Sultan volunteers whenever he can – be it helping to feed the homeless, the Special Olympics, or free dental clinics. We are so proud to have Dr. Sultan on the Washington Smiles team!
