Meet the Doctors

Drs. Eliliwi, Kato & Choi

Dr. Manhal Eliliwi

Dr. Manhal Eliliwi was born in Aleppo, Syria. His passion for becoming an Orthodontist led him to start his education at the Damascus University School of Dental Medicine. After he completed his time in Damascus, he moved to the states and completed his research at the Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics Department of the Boston University School of Dental Medicine. Completing his comprehensive education, he received his Orthodontic Certificate from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.

Dr. Manny’s time in school led him to a long-standing list of accomplishments and admiration from his peers. He has spoken at the American Association of Orthodontics (AAO) Annual Meeting, published articles in many Orthodontic oriented journals, and is a reoccurring member of the American Dental Association (ADA).

During his time away from being an Orthodontist, he is an avid hiker, an up-and-coming Gordon Ramsay in the kitchen, and loves to spend time with friends and family.

Dr. Manny’s love for crafting beautiful smiles for adults and children has imprinted a long-lasting impression on every patient he meets. Seeing the patient finally have the smile of their dreams is an ecstatic experience for Dr. Manny.
