Dr. Khatib joins us from the Medical University of South Carolina where he served as an assistant clinical professor in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. While at MUSC, he performed the first “Jaw in a Day” procedures in South Carolina, including one of the youngest patients to ever receive the revolutionary procedure on her mandible. These procedures were featured on the front page of the “Post and Courier” and local news stations.
Dr. Khatib earned his dental degree from the University of Alberta, Canada and his Medical Degree from the University of California Davis. After his residency at the University of California San Francisco, he completed fellowship training through Legacy Emanuel Hospital and Randall’s Children’s Hospital in Adult and Pediatric Advanced Craniomaxillofacial and Trauma Surgery. Following this he completed an additional fellowship through Providence Cancer Center in Head and Neck Oncologic and Microvascular Reconstructive Surgery. He is board certified by the American and Canadian Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
Dr. Khatib’s practice includes Adult and Pediatric oral surgery (dental extractions, wisdom teeth removal, bone grafting, dental and zygomatic implants), oral head and neck microvascular reconstructive surgery, pathology, trauma surgery, sleep surgery, and corrective jaw surgery. In addition, he is the site director for education at Legacy Emanuel hospital for the Maxillofacial surgery service.
He lives in Portland and when not at work can be found cooking with his wife, staying active, and enjoying Portland’s great food scene!
