  1. Phil Voissem Portrait

    Phil Voissem, DDS

    General Dentist

    As a new transplant to Texas, Dr. Voissem is excited to call Ideal Dental and DFW his new home. While his heart and football team (The Green Bay Packers) will always stay in Wisconsin, he is excited to be working in such an energetic and fast growing place such as Texas.

    College at Saint Louis University, graduate school at Barry University in Miami, Florida, and dental school at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska brought Dr. Voissem all over the country before setting roots in Texas. In Dental School he made deans list multiple times and served as president of the Dental Student Union. To provide the best care for his patients, he has done research with the American Dental Association Foundation, and he is a member of the American Dental Association and the Academy of General Dentists.

    When not obsessing over your oral health, Dr. Voissem can be seen (literally) running around Dallas as he burns off the calories from his other big hobby: cooking. He is also a proud coffee and beer geek, and he dabbles in photography. But be careful; he can talk for hours about any of those things.

    Nedda Hifeda, DMD


    Dr. Nedda Hifeda’s outstanding clinical skills and combined with unique dental research experience using the most advanced technology in Endodontics, led her to be increasingly recognized as a clinician and researcher. 
    Dr. Nedda Hifeda attended Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine, where she earned her Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry. She also decided to pursue her dream of becoming an Endodontist by completing a two-year Postgraduate Endodontic Specialty Residency.

  3. Afra Saleh Portrait

    Afra Saleh, DDS


    Dr. Afra Saleh grew up in Los Angeles, CA and Toronto, Canada. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at UCLA, and her Doctor of Dental Surgery at Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC.  
    Dr. Saleh entered the dental field because it allowed her to combine her passion for helping people with her love for art and esthetics. After working as a general dentist with Deca Dental for a few years, she realized her true interest in dentistry was the field of Orthodontics which sent her to pursue her MS and certificate in Orthodontics from the University at Buffalo, New York.   
    Her favorite aspect of Orthodontics is that every individual case is unique, requiring a tailored solution for each patient. Each smile transformation is an individual journey that Dr. Saleh enjoys from start to finish.  
    Outside of the office, Dr. Saleh enjoys drawing, painting, working out and taking her pups out on long walks.
