Upon graduation, Dr. Rami worked in various clinics throughout the Twin Cities and Duluth before opening his Duluth practice in 2001. He works alongside his wife, Dr. Susan Guirguis, a general dentist. Together they have two sons – Alexander and Christian.

Dr. Susan Guirguis, DDS
Dr. Susan graduated from Jefferson High School in Alexandria, MN. She attended the College of St. Benedict/St. John’s University where she obtained her degree in biology. She further studied cytology at Associated Pathologist’s Laboratories in Las Vegas and worked as a cytotechnologist at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis while Dr. Rami was finishing his studies in Pediatric Dentistry. Once Dr. Rami completed his studies, they switched places and Dr. Susan went on to study dentistry at the University of Minnesota - Minneapolis. Shortly after graduating in 2001, she joined her husband in Duluth to start their practice. Once settled into their new office, they started their family and settled into “life up north!” Dr. Susan remains busy with whatever her boys are into at the time – this includes a lot of school work and running around to different activities after work. She also has two other “furry babies” at home: their mixed breed rescue dogs Dexter and Scooter. Along with the boys, they keep her busy too!
