Hi my name is Emile Joseph Waked (Wake-ed), I would like to say “Hello”, and take this opportunity to introduce myself to you. In 1996, I graduated dental school in Europe and came to UCLA to further my education in Cosmetic and Implant dentistry. After three years, I graduated with a fellowship in Advanced Education in General Dentistry. I started my career as an Associate Professor at UCLA, educating and training dentists, dental students and hygiene students. I got the opportunity to do some research, that I lectured on and published nationally and internationally. In 2002, I got married with Gabriela, became enchanted with the Central Coast and moved to Santa Maria; I practiced dentistry locally since 2002.
I am a father of four all born in Santa Maria, Andrea, Joseph, Christian and Natalia. I enjoy spending time with the family, helping our local Girl and Boyscouts, and being a member of Knights of Columbus at St Louis De Monfort. I am a wine enthusiast and a small producer. When not working you may encounter me riding my bicycle on our scenic roads or shooting trap in our local club.
I look forward to meeting each of you personally, to give you a chance to get to know me. I intend to continue my tradition of providing you with the best dental care possible. My policy in the office will be one of open communication, so that you may feel free to call any time with any questions or concerns you may have. I trust that you will feel that you can have all your dental needs met in our office.
