Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I would like to introduce myself. My name is Ayman Metwally and I am a Pediatric Dentist at Bay Area Kids Dentist. I grew up in the South Bay and later attended both college and dental school in the Bay Area. I received a B.A. in Ethnic Studies from UC Berkeley and a Doctorate in Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) from UC San Francisco.
After completing Dental school, I worked as a general dentist in the Bay Area for four years before deciding to pursue my interest in Pediatrics.
I completed a specialty residency in Pediatric Dentistry at Staten Island University Hospital in New York City, where I was appointed Chief Resident during my final year. I was also awarded the Puglisi Award for top Dental resident when I graduated.
I stayed in New York City for three more years as an Attending and Clinical Instructor at the same hospital where I had received my training. I also worked in private practice as well as in clinics serving low-income populations. Being fluent in both Arabic and Spanish has been an invaluable tool in better serving diverse communities.
I have my Oral Conscious Sedation permit and I work closely with a Board Certified Pediatric Anesthesiologist for Dental restoration cases under full intubation general Anesthesia. In 2011 I became Board Certified in Pediatric Dentistry and a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
We came back 5 months later when my daughter was complaining of tooth pain. Dr. Metwally saw us right away and even though my daughter needed extensive work he put my mind at ease. Yesterday we came in for her work to be done. She had to be sedated because she is so young. The staff made both her and I feel comfortable. Dr. Metwally and his staff updated me regularly throughout the procedure. Today my daughter is happy go lucky and says she loves her dentist. She doesn't remember any of the work and was not traumatized at all. Thank you Dr. Metwally and bay area kids dentist for taking such good care of my daughter.

The doctors and staff at the office are amazing . . . Dr. Metwally is realistic and gave me great advice about what I should worry about and not worry about. The entire visit for both girls took about 30 minutes!!!! Super efficient! I just can't say enough great things about this office! I feel so lucky to have them in Morgan Hill. Great job Bay Area Dentist! Don't change a thing! You're doing great work!

Dr. Metwally was awesome and went over what to expect with kids that age and forward. I was in and out of the office in 40mins.

We were recommended to go to BAKD from my sister-in-law and I have no regrets about taking my children here. Dr. Metwally and his team are great! Actually, I take that back they are more than great, they are the best! My boyfriend and I were so impressed by how Dr. Metwally and his team were. Everyone greets you and they are very friendly. I never felt so impressed by a practice until we came to BAKD.
Dr. Metwally and his team are very informative and they explain everything! They have a lot of patience when it comes to the children. You can tell they are very passionate with their work and the children.
We definitely will be taking our children back when needed!
