Why did you become a dentist/hygienist?
Dentistry appealed to me because of its creative and artistic nature. It is also an exciting career with new challenges being presented every day.
What do you do in your free time?
Outside of dentistry, I am a budding musician and a novice pastry chef. I also enjoy taking on new DIY projects, from embroidery to crochet.
What do you like most about your job?
My favourite part of being a dentist is knowing that I am able to make a difference in someone’s life. Be it relieving a patient from a toothache or seeing a patient smile with a new set of dentures, these things really invoke a huge sense of satisfaction in me.
I also enjoy the interesting conversations I have with my patients, who come from all walks of life.
Why should you book an appointment with me?
Dental visits are often thought to be stressful, traumatic and painful experiences, with many patients avoiding the dentist at all cost. However, I aim to debunk these views and strive to provide quality care for all patients, while making their visit a relaxing and pleasant one.
