Aziza started her career as a dental hygienist. She was fortunate to work for a DSO (DentalOne Partners) that believed in her ability to pioneer a new clinical management role to help grow the organization. At DentalOne Aziza was able to implement clinical and operational guidelines to ensure regulatory compliance protocols were being followed. Aziza and her happy dedicated teams were able to sustain positive year over year EBITDA growth. Aziza is known in the industry for being people orientated, creating everlasting relationships and most of all, always treating everyone with the utmost respect and gratitude. After 14 years of serving DentalOne, she was recruited by another DSO -North American Dental Group which at the time only had 36 locations. Her positions at NADG were Senior Director of Operations and Clinical Director of Operations. She helped create and implement clinical and operational platforms that were scalable to allow for the company’s vision of multi-unit group growth as well as year over year incremental EBITDA growth. As you can see, between her passion for dentistry, her past experiences, her supportive influencers, her drive and motivation all led her to be the first female dental hygienist to start a DSO. She also serves on the editorial board for Group Dentistry Now, lectures for dental residency programs and does public speaking engagements. Advising the future women entrepreneurs, Aziza says, “Find your passion, set goals, surround yourself with positive people, learn from those that are willing to teach you, never think you know it all, respect people, show compassion, create your own core values and don’t stray from them no matter the circumstance and always revisit your goals. Dreams do come true as long as you put the work into it and stay focused!” Aziza is blessed to work alongside two of her five sons, Kamal (Director of Operations) and Jamal (Director of Business Development), both of which share the same passion.
Dentistry is a health care service industry, so it is vital that the focus be on the patient’s overall health and wellness needs. It is also critical to ensure the team members have standard operating procedures to ensure they are following all regulatory compliance rules and regulations to keep them safe. In dentistry infection control and OSHA have always been at the forefront of normal standards but with the current unprecedented times of the Covid-19 pandemic it is even more crucial that these rules are followed to perfection. There is no room for error. At PHD, they also focus on clinical quality assurance and hire in top-notch talent to serve their patients. PHD takes the health and safety of their patients and teams very seriously.
PHD is owned and managed by partners that are dedicated to providing the highest standard of care to their patients and teams. The “people” team culture concept of the business is truly their number one priority. Their vision is to have a presence in over 20 cities across the state of Ohio. IE
