Dr. Ghoneima received his Bachelor of Dental Surgery from Al-Azhar University, Cairo, Egypt. After completing his PhD in Orthodontics, he joined the Department of Orthodontics and Oral Facial Genetics at IUSD in 2009. Dr. Ghoneima's research interests include the applications of 3D imaging in orthodontics, airways analysis, maxillary expansion, and 3D cephalomterics. His expertise also includes haptic technology and the use of the virtual reality in dental education. Dr. Ghoneima is currently the director of the 3D Orthodontic Imaging Lab.
