Why did you become a dentist/hygienist?
The interest started from when I was still in kindergarten after my first dental visit. The dentist that attended to me made my first dental visit so memorable and enjoyable that I kept begging my mom to go to the clinic again.
What do you do in your free time?
When I have free time, I usually spend it with my family and friends. Love spending time with my husband and baby boy. I also love to cook (fusion food) when I have the time or when my family and friends request for it.
What do you like most about your job?
When I am able to make my patients love coming for dental appointments with me! Especially if they have dental anxiety or phobia. I will try my best to change their mindset and make their appointments an enjoyable and memorable one.
