FAIRFIELD: A team of husbands and wives are ready to bring improved smiles and thorns to Fairfield.
Dr. Aisha Amin recently joined the Fairfield Family Dental team. The 36-year-old mother grew up locally and graduated from Fairfield High School in 2002.
Her husband, Raheel Mann, 38, will soon open the Healing Mann Chiropractic in June. Mann grew up in Daly City and graduated from Westmoor High in 2001. He also knows Fairfield well, having gone out with his wife as UC Davis students, both of whom graduated in 2006.
The couple is ready to spend more time at home with their children, 6-year-old Zayn and 5-year-old Zia, while they have the opportunity to build a new life in the community.
“It’s a blessing to do what I love and to be able to be with the family and have dinner together,” Amin said. “It’s nice to be able to expose our children to different cultures that this community offers. It’s such a diverse city. “
Amin specialized in biochemistry and molecular biology. Mann graduated in psychobiology. Mann used to visit Amin when he earned extra money working at Macy’s.
“I loved driving down Travis Boulevard and now I’m going to have a clinic,” Mann said.
Healing Mann Chiropractic will open at 1313 Travis Blvd., Suite B, when ready.
Amin is the former dental director of the nation’s third-largest health center, which oversees 40 dentists, spans 13 dental clinics, teaches NYU Lagone dental residents and works as an adjunct professor at AT Still University of Mesa, Arizona.
He started at the Fairfield Clinic in April and is working with Dr. Thomas Toolson. She is applying her dental experience to patient-centered dental care, with a special focus on Invisalign and cosmetic dentistry.
“There were a lot of great Fairfield mentors who helped me pursue a career in the dental field,” he said. “My goal was to always go back to our roots and serve the community that gave us our base.”
Mann’s clinic will focus on sports rehabilitation, family care, pregnancy care and personal injury. He has an extensive resume in business and is ready to come here and open his studio.
“I have been happy to work alongside the best chiropractors of our generation and look forward to bringing this experience to the Fairfield community. This community deserves the best in comprehensive, evidence-based care,” he said.
“Community service is also a pillar of my life,” he said. “If you invest in the community, the community will invest in you.”
Mann has been a member of city council committees, hospital foundation boards, and youth leadership organizations. Amin is eager to serve as a role model for youth, providing guidance and leadership to those interested in pursuing a career in the dental field.
“Last year Aisha lost her father and with Covid we wanted to make every attempt to return to the community,” Mann said. “We are both in all aspects of community service. Our parents were first generation immigrants from Pakistan and we saw how hard they had to work. We have had help along the way and now we feel responsible for providing help to the next generation. ”
