Saif Abdulateef, DMDOral Surgeon

Saif Abdulateef, DMD, is a board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon with clinical interest in dentoalveolar surgery, facial cosmetic procedures, dental implant surgery, jaw corrective surgery, and surgical and non-surgical management of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.

I was born and raised in Baghdad, Iraq. In 2007, I earned my B.D.S. from the University of Baghdad- College of Dentistry and then moved to the U.S in 2008. I earned my Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from The University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine in Philadelphia, followed by an oral surgery residency at Woodhull Medical Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. I completed an extensive fellowship at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, PA. From 2018 to 2021, I served as a full time faculty at Geisinger Health System teaching residents, working on multiple research projects, working collaboratively with multiple subspecialities, and providing the highest level of patient care. In October of 2021, I relocated to the DMV area and I am currently working on relocating my family here as well. In my free time, I enjoy playing and watching sports like soccer, tennis and swimming. My favorite soccer team is Manchester United and the Atlanta Falcons is my favorite football team. Another hobby of mine is attending live concerts and music festivals.

My professional affiliations are, Member of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, Member of the American College of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, and Member of Pennsylvania Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.

I also currently hold a position as a part time faculty at Geisinger Medical Center, where I still continue to be involved in academic research, mentoring residents, complex surgical cases, and excellent patient care.

Dr. Zadeh is not only a very qualified oral surgeon, he is a very warm and easy to communicate with kind of person. I had a lower canine that had been root-canaled some time ago and ended up having a painful infection. He took out my infected tooth like he pulled out a needle from a butter, not feeling any pain at all. He then placed an imediate implant. He is very efficient in using his time and…

Dr. Jackson was extremely professional, patient, informative as well as friendly and enjoyable. She explained everything in great detail before my procedure. My personal dentist, Dr. Jones, recommended her. I knew if Dr. Jones recommended her she had to be great. My procedure was exactly as she explained. Her assistant Rosemary was also wonderful. I highly recommend Dr. Jackson to anyone reading t…

I’ve had extensive dental work over the past decade. While all of the dentists and oral surgeons I’ve experienced in Northern Virginia have been professional and competent, This outfit is unquestionably the very best from the support staff to the doctors. Feel free to contact me for specifics.

I had all 4 wisdom teeth removed yesterday by Dr. Zadeh. I was very nervous because this was my first surgery ever. All of the staff was was great and explained every step including the sedation process and aftercare instructions. Before I took any medication, my pain was a 3/4 out of 10. This was a very positive experience and I highly recommend this practice.

I’m afraid of all doctors but this was the best experience I’ve ever had. Everyone was extremely nice, with a warm inviting atmosphere. Their manager, Kelly was patient with all of my questions and helped me without hesitation. If I hear of someone needing surgery, this is who I’d recommend.

Unfortunately we had to be seen for an emergency situation. Dr. Haron was very thorough with informing us of what was to be expected. He was spot on with what happened and what he told us to expect. His calm, gentle demeanor was quite settling for us.

I had an abscess beneath my right back molar. The pain was unbearable. I was referred by a friend to NOVA Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Associates by a friend. I couldn’t have been happier about my treatment, procedure and outcome. I am now pain-free. I was very impressed with the staff and service. In fact, I am about to schedule another appointment with them to install an implant for t…

Very professional and knowledgeable staff. I would 100% recommend this practice. The staff very thoroughly communicated with us, not only about the procedures, but also about the billing. I felt like my son was in the best hands for his wisdom teeth extraction. Thank you for making this a smooth process!
