Dr. Arif loves belonging to the profession of making smiles. Raised in Southern California, Dr. Arif (pronounced "a reef") followed in his dentist-mother's footsteps. He completed dental school at Columbia University in New York and graduated with the prestigious Divisional Excellence in Prosthodontics Award. 

Dr. Arif then started his career in corporate dentistry, working in Midland, Odessa and Tyler, Texas.
