Dr. Akbar Khan
Pediatric Dentist - Portland, OR
Dr. Akbar Khan, D.M.D. is our newest member of the Great Grins team! Dr. Akbar grew up in New York City, NY and Norwich, CT and has very strong opinions on pizza and lobster rolls. He received his B.S. in Molecular & Cellular Biology and his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree at the University of Connecticut. After graduating, he completed a one-year hospital-based residency at Harvard with a major focus on treating medically compromised patients. While in Boston, he developed strong opinions on clam chowder and cannoli.
Dr. Akbar then moved to Minneapolis, MN to complete his pediatric dental residency at the Masonic Children’s Hospital where he was selected to serve as chief resident. In Minneapolis he gained a newfound appreciation for walleye and banh mi. He enjoys spoiling his cat, cooking/baking for friends (and the occasional foe), drinking espresso like water, sewing, landscape photography, woodworking, but most of all, he enjoys spending time backwoods camping and hiking in U.S. National Parks.
