Why did you become a dentist/hygienist?
There have been many episodes in my life where I needed dental treatment- the fall I had when I was 7 years old that chipped off my front tooth and ended up needing a big filling, the orthodontic treatment that had to be done to help me speak and chew better and the root-canal and crown treatment that I had to go through for my cracked tooth to get me out of pain. I understand the distress one can feel when things go wrong with their teeth, I was very lucky to receive quality dental treatment. I am very excited to be that somebody to make a person’s day better through quality dentistry.
What do you do in your free time?
When I am not doing dentistry, I enjoy food hunting and reading up on the latest skincare products and trends. Hawkers, cafes, restaurants- as long as food is concerned, I am interested!
What do you like most about your job?
Getting to meet and and talk to different people! I enjoy the actual hands-on dental work but I feel that it is helping the people that makes my job fulfilling. Everyone is different- it reminds me that I do not just treat teeth!
Why should you book an appointment with me?
Because I want to help you achieve your dental goals. I understand the dental fears and trauma many of us have had since when we were young. Dentistry does not have to be scary. Come in and let’s have a nice chat!
