Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about El Dorado Family Dental. My name is Mohamad Taisir Albik. I am a father, husband, dentist, and owner of El Dorado Family Dental in El Dorado Hills, CA. I have dedicated much of my life to learning about and providing dental health care to patients like you around the globe. I am now honored to call El Dorado Hills my home and provide my community with caring and affordable oral health care.
“Dr Albik was a very pleasant dr. He was very considerate to make sure I was comfortable. Explained things to me in detail and had example videos to show me the procedures. I would highly recommend this doctor to all my friends and family! Thank you.”

My journey to El Dorado Family Dental began in the oldest continuously inhabited capital in the world. I was born and raised in Damascus, Syria until the age of 16. At this early age I began to dedicate my life to dentistry and moved to Aleppo, Syria to begin my education at the Aleppo School of Dental Medicine.
Being younger than many of my fellow classmates taught me independency and discipline. I became more and more excited about dentistry as my education continued. Much of my final two years in school were spent in clinics treating patients and this is where I developed special interest in oral surgery procedures. When I graduated in 1998, I achieved the highest ranking in my class for oral surgery subjects and mouth diseases.
During my Summer breaks from school, I volunteered at public dental clinics, performing procedures five to six days a week. The only Summer that I did not volunteer in the clinics was 1997 when I had the opportunity to visit America. I spent my time at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts learning from American Dentists and Surgeons. During my visit, I fell in love with the country and the dental health system and made the decision to move here.
After moving to the USA, I continued my education attending the University of Houston Texas in 2000 and Loma Linda University for dental implant training in 2012. In 2015 I was made an Associate Fellow with the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. I have also been honored to be named a Diplomate for both the International Academy of Dental Implants in San Diego and the American Board of Implantology.
I understand that I have been given a great opportunity, being able to do what I love for living. I am always looking for ways to give back for this opportunity and volunteer with the International Academy of Dental Implantology’s Share to Care Smile Program. This is program allows me to travel to Mexico to help victims of violence restore their smiles.
When I decided to start my own dental practice, I envisioned not only providing you with the best dental health care possible, but building a trusting and long-lasting relationship. Every aspect of our dental office was designed with your experience in mind. From the moment you walk in, we treat you like family, take the time to get to know your and listen to your concerns. You can rest assured that we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to our dental services. You are unique and your treatment plan should be too.
When I’m not spending time with patients, I enjoy spending time with my wife and three adorable children. We enjoy hiking, biking, or cooling off in a raft along the American River Trails in the Summer or skiing in the mountains during the Winter.
“Very professional and friendly staff, Dr Albik is very professional and friendly. My daughter, who is 10 years old, said that she was happy that he was her dentist.”
