QnA Section

Why did you become a dentist/hygienist?

At its core, dentistry is an intimate marriage of art and science.
Since i was young, i’ve always wanted to be in a profession that is more hands-on, cerebral and dynamic as opposed to a deskbound job. Dentistry allows me to do just that in addition to helping people improve their appearance and quality of life.

What do you do in your free time?

I spend most of my free time with my wife and hyperactive 2 year old daughter.
When they are both asleep (and i am relieved of my duties as a husband and father), i unwind by playing video games.

What do you like most about your job?

Being a dentist allows me to make an appreciable difference in my patients’ lives. Whether its relieving a patient’s severe toothache or giving a patient a new set of dentures to chew and smile with, seeing a patient respond with appreciation and gratitude is undoubtedly the favorite part of my job.

Why should you book an appointment with me?

It is my personal belief that your visit to Allsmiles Dental Clinic should go beyond just dental treatment and be a holistic experience. As such, i am committed to setting realistic treatment goals while exploring all feasible treatment options within your budget and expectations. Above all, your comfort and satisfaction is of key priority to me so i look forward to being of service to you.
