Dr. Tasami Abdelsalam joined Pippin Dental in October 2018, after a friend recommended the practice’s convenient scheduling and its work with kids. She completed her undergraduate study at the University of Khartoum in Sudan, then moved to the United States to earn her DMD at the University of Illinois at Chicago, where she was also a teaching instructor. Prior to joining the Pippin team, she worked in private practice.
Dr. Abdelsalam generously donates her time to various dental charitable organizations in the U.S. and abroad. She worked as a volunteer dentist in multiple teaching hospitals in her home country, and has raised funds to send dentists to treat refugees in East Africa, and to provide food, medications, and basic supplies to a community organization in Sudan.
Fun Fact: She loves to draw and also enjoys playing outside with her husband and sons.
Quotable: "I love working with kids and I’m the mom of three beautiful energetic boys."
