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.
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.
