Dr. Abdul came from a family of Physician innovators who were active in Public Health. His grandfather, an ophthalmologic surgeon, served the Flying Tigers in WWII, and after the war, stayed behind in China to serve the needy. His mother, a nurse, and his father an orthopedic surgeon, continued to serve the cause of public health. Dr. Abdul refers to his parents as heroes who groomed him to love the art and science of Medicine.  He is fluent in Chinese, both Cantonese and Mandarin.

Dr. Abdul's scientific career started in high school where he was introduced to a very rigorous curriculum of both the physical and social sciences. Growing up in Hong Kong, a multi-cultural territory of Britain and now China, he had a unique opportunity to learn and experience the most diverse of cultures.

At age seventeen, he attended Tufts University where he studied Chemical Engineering, Bio-Medical Engineering and Biology. After completing a Bachelors Degree, he went on to study Applied Physics at the graduate level. His interests were to investigate advances in medical imaging modalities such as the CT, MRI and PET. At the same time he was trained to perform tissue culture experimentations. Specifically, he worked on the relationships between cortisone, a stress related hormone, with neural (nerve cell) tissue development.

After gaining expertise in the Biological and Engineering sciences, he felt the urge to apply the knowledge that he had earned into helping others.

Dr. Abdul commenced his Doctoral training at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, where he continued to excel in developing public health initiatives while also pursuing research. He had the honor of training under Dr. Eleni Gagari, a Harvard trained oral pathologist. Under her supervision he worked on Distraction Osteogeneis, a procedure used in developing human bone. His research earned him numerous first place awards both within Tufts and nationally.

Additionally, he developed the Boston Chinatown Outreach program, where he worked tirelessly to help the diverse Boston Chinatown Community improve its access to oral health care. Initially, without any sponsors, he provided life saving oral cancer screenings to thousands of residents. His program developed numerous seminars, some withinin the New England Medical Center, to educate the public on oral health and its relationship with total health. To emphasize preventative health, he initiated an after school Dental program. For his work, Dr. Abdul was honored as an Albert Schweitzer Fellow, the American Association of Public Health Dentistry Senior Award and by Tufts University with the Presidential Award in Global Citizenship.

Subsequently, Dr. Abdul was accepted into a post doctoral fellowship program at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. There he served as Resident in Dentistry for both the Brigham and Womens Hospital and Harvard Medical School. Concurrently, he served as a Clinical Fellow in General Dentistry at Harvard School of Dental Medicine. After graduating, he was appointed Associate Surgeon to both the Brigham, and the Brookside Community Health Center.

Dr. Abdul's education did not end with Harvard or Tufts. He became one of the youngest Doctors to have earned both a Mastership in the Academy of General Dentistry and Fellowship in the American Association of Hospital Dentists.

He also earned Dentistrys highest honors when he became a Diplomate of the American Board of General Dentistry.

Dr. Abdul's goal in starting Lux was to provide oral health care and access to care for all. He is adamant about the concept that exceptional care should NOT be limited by socio-economic boundaries, and he aspires to transform his dream into a reality for all. Besides continuing his training, he is working tirelessly to secure dental care for those who are most vulnerable. Through community organizations and through his involvement in health policies, he hopes to change the landscape of oral health in the United States.
