Meet Dr. Irma Iskandar

Meet Dr. Irma Iskandar

Dr. Irma Iskandar is originally from the beachy state of Florida. She graduated with honors from Bryn Mawr College in Pennsylvania with a bachelor’s degree in Philosophy and a minor in Biology. Despite how much she enjoyed quoting great philosophers of the past, however, Dr. Iskandar knew her life calling was to serve others in the field of dentistry. Prior to attending dental school, she was involved in laboratory research investigating the possible links between periodontal disease and other illnesses such as heart disease. This experience, which led to a 1st place award in student research at the University of Florida College of Dentistry, and to the 2006 Colgate Research Award for excellence in the field of research, solidified her passion for periodontics and for advocating gum health to the general public. After obtaining her DMD degree, Dr. Iskandar completed her periodontics training at The Ohio State University College of Dentistry. It was there at her residency where she wrote and collaborated on research topics related to periodontics, leading to publications in academic journals such as in the esteemed Journal of Periodontology. She also became Board Certified by the American Board of Periodontology. After her residency, Dr. Iskandar started working in private practice in Washington State for a few years. Afterwards, she moved down to sunny and dry Arizona to be with her husband and has made this state her home ever since. Outside of work, Dr. Iskandar’s absolute favorite things to do are reading books (with an annual goal of finishing 100 books a year), bicycling, cooking Sunday dinner, and planning around-the-town adventures with her husband and their two young children.
