Dr. Salman is a Michigan native. She grew up in Kalamazoo. She considers herself to be a true Michigan Wolverine, having spent eleven straight years at the University of Michigan for her undergraduate, dental, and orthodontic specialty training.
After Dr. Salman earned her Bachelor of Science degree in neuroscience, she initially considered pursuing a graduate degree in that field but decided to switch gears to dentistry after observing all the fun her brother (now a practicing oral surgeon in Jacksonville, FL) was having in dental school.
While in dental school, Dr. Salman fell in love with orthodontics. She feels that orthodontics is the perfect combination of science, art, and patient care that allows her to make a lasting and positive impact on the lives of others.
After completing her residency training, she spent time practicing in Minnesota and Wisconsin. She is happy to return home to Michigan to be closer to her family and friends in the area and is so excited to join the TDR team.
In her free time, Dr. Salman enjoys cooking, hiking, yoga, reading non-fiction, and traveling to new places.
