Dr. Kareem Hatahet DDS
Dr. Hatahet’s interest in dentistry is the direct result of a combined interest in medicine and fixing things. So naturally, he went through undergraduate school at Eastern Michigan University, just like Dr. Hiebel, and graduated in 2011 with a degree in Biology. He then decided to come to a better place and attended The Ohio State University for dentistry, finishing up in May of 2015. Ever since then he has held an adoration for all things Columbus and Buckeyes. Dr. Hatahet has been married for just over three years to his wife Sajdah, who works at a non-profit organization in downtown Columbus.
Aside from teeth, Dr. Hatahet’s interests are varied. His favorite thing second only to his delightful wife is coffee, which definitely began as a direct result of dental school. He also enjoys exploring new places, trying new food, meeting new people, cars and car shows. If he was forced to pick another field, he would become a veterinarian.
