MEET OUR DOCTORS
Dr. Sami Bahri was born in Lebanon where he received his dental degree from Saint Joseph Jesuit University. He spent three years in Paris, France specializing in dental prosthetics, and upon his return to Lebanon, he started teaching dentistry.
Soon he became chairman of the Fixed Prosthodontics department, and in 1984 was appointed as the founding director of the dental school at the Lebanese University. In 1990, he moved to Jacksonville, FL with his wife Dr. Micheline Baz Bahri and co-founded Bahri Dental Group with his brother, Dr. Gaby Bahri. They have been providing their dental services to Jacksonville ever since. Dr. Sami is the first "Lean" dentist, the author of the internationally recognized workbook: "Follow the learner" and the winner of the Shingo Prize.
He was a pioneer at implementing Toyota production principals in is dental office: just in time and one piece flow, resulting in no wait, no waste. He lectures across the US and has made Bahri Dental Group a beacon of dental management that many companies visit and learn from.
Dr. Micheline Baz graduated at 22, with Honors, from the Faculté Française de Médecine Dentaire (Beirut, Lebanon). She ran her solo practice while studying for a post-doc in Dental Materials. In the early 80's, she took part in founding the Lebanese University's dental school, where she taught Prosthodontics for ten years.
In 1990, she moved to the US where she attended, and later on taught, dental review courses with Board Preps. Dr. Baz and her husband Dr. Sami Bahri opened their first dental office in Jacksonville, FL. Since then, she has played an active role in its management and continuous improvement while practicing dentistry part-time. She is famous for her painless anesthesia delivery and her keen attention to detail.
