In 2014, Orthodontist Dr. Omar Issa partnered with Dr. Stephen Rayburn who has served the Orthodontics needs of Plano, TX for over 30 years, and Issa Orthodontics was created. This new partnership brings together two very like-minded orthodontists who believe in using the technological advances available to make orthodontic treatment faster and more comfortable, but also are committed to providing an experience and care that is perfectly suited to each individual. Dr. Issa and Dr. Rayburn are confident that the smiles they create do more than look attractive; the benefits of a smile from Issa Orthodontics are endless. Give us a call today or contact us via our web form, and let Issa Orthodontics power your possibilities.
Meet Dr. Issa
An admitted “science geek”, Dr. Issa loves the ever-evolving field of orthodontics and technology that represents the state-of-the-art care that his practice is known for. When he’s not chair-side with patients, you’ll find Dr. Issa still devoted to his orthodontic specialty. Whether he’s at his computer reviewing a SureSmile or Invisalign treatment plan, or reviewing the latest journal articles and courses, Dr. Issa believes it’s his responsibility to stay on top of the latest ways to provide great treatment to his patients.
Dr. Issa was born in Dover New Hampshire, and then lived alternatively between the US and Egypt as he was growing up. After graduating with honors and a BS in Dental Surgery from Cairo University, he completed a General Dentistry Residency at Cairo University Hospital.
Dr. Issa then returned stateside to further his dental education at The University of Minnesota School of Dental Medicine. There he received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery, Master of Science and completed a Graduate Residency in Dentistry before entering and then completing the Orthodontic Residency Program for his Certificate in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. This educational path that included multiple residencies provides Dr. Issa a strong foundation that he uses daily in his patient’s orthodontic treatment and gives him particular insight when managing multi-disciplinary cases with general dentists and other specialists. Dr. Issa has completed his certification by the American Board of Orthodontists.
Dr. Issa, his wife (who’s also a dentist) and their two sons love exploring their new home state, taking advantage of parks, restaurants and sports activities. The wide variety of things to do and places to go are some of the reasons they chose to move to Plano from Minnesota. (Well, it may have had a little bit to do with the weather…) Dr. Issa is also an athlete in his down-time; soccer, tennis and squash are all favorite sports that suit his high-energy personality.
Donna, Office Manager
Donna has spent her entire working career in the orthodontic field. After spending 11 years as an orthodontic assistant, she then moved to the administrative branch of orthodontics. She oversees our office to ensure the best patient experience.
Donna’s favorite part of her role at Infinite Orthodontics is that she gets to learn about the interests and hobbies of all the people who come in. The word “stranger” just doesn’t exist for when it comes to Donna; people often say that they feel as if they’ve known her for years. Donna’s favorite color is blue, that being said, she is a big Kansas Jayhawk fan, Rock Chalk – Go Hawks!!!
Sarah – Treatment Coordinator
Sarah is a dedicated treatment coordinator and really loves to see how excited patients are when they get their braces taken off! Sometimes we think she’s even more excited than our patients! She is a funny, compassionate and dedicated member of the Infinite Orthodontic team.
In her spare time, Sarah enjoys spending time with her son, whether it is at the park with friends or snuggling on the couch. She is a loyal Dallas Cowboys football fan and never misses a game. The games remind her of Thanksgiving with her grandparents, yelling at the TV.
Sarah also enjoys reading to her son, especially their favorite book, I Love You More Than Rainbows by Susan Crites. Sarah loves all the colors of the rainbow but her favorites are chocolate brown and the peacock colors; purple, turquoise and lime green.
Lali, Orthodontic Assistant
Lali is an outgoing assistant who really enjoys interacting with and getting to know her patients, but her favorite part is when they get their braces off and see their new smile for the first time. When Lali isn’t working, she enjoys travelling. The best place (in Lali’s opinion) that she has travelled is Colorado, which makes sense, since she’s a Denver Broncos fan! Her favorite part about Colorado is all the nature. Lali also enjoys trying new restaurants with her friends, because she really likes food, especially her mom’s homemade spaghetti. To relax, she likes reading, her favorite book is the first book in The Hunger Games Series. Lali is also a fan of the color black because it’s a classic.
Tiffany, Orthodontic Assistant
Tiffany is the social butterfly of Issa Orthodontics. She loves to visit with the patients, whether in the office or out and about in the community. One of the favorite parts of her position is watching the transformation of patients over the course of treatment, and to witness the confidence their new smile brings them.
Tiffany is the first to jump into the newest magazine in our lobby and keeps us all up to date on the latest news and gossip. Outside of the practice you can find Tiffany spending time with her family to watch sporting events and movies, have family cookouts and take trips. You can find Tiffany cheering for the Rangers and the Yankees but if she has to choose she will go for the home team. Being able to spend time with family recharges Tiffany’s enthusiasm and she in turn shares that enthusiasm with her patients.
