  1. Please describe the moment when you chose to become a dentist?

I wanted to follow my Dad’s footsteps to become a physician. But my sister had perio issues and she was diagnosed with early onset periodontitis. Every visit to the dentist I accompanied her and was so impressed by the ways he treated her and the different materials he used amazed me. Those visits changed my mind to become a dentist.

 

  1. What do you love about dentistry?

I love the fact that a dentist can create so much confidence and change in personality not just externally but also inner self too. It is not just treatment with medicines but creating a smile and restore function.

 

  1. What do you love about your job?

I love the interaction with all my patients and also the ability to relieve pain and get better quality of life.

 

  1. What do you want people to understand about the way you practice dentistry?

My way of practicing dentistry is very conservative, preventive rather than treating the outcome of delayed care. I would like to educate my patients about prevention and everyday routine in taking care of their teeth.
