Why did you become a dentist/hygienist?
The interest for dentistry only sprouted when I was working as a part-time dental assistant. I get satisfaction from seeing a carious tooth restored, or heavy calculus being scaled off.
What do you do in your free time?
On my day off, I spend quality time with family and friends, explore some arts and music, occasionally volunteer at Healthserve.
What do you like most about your job?
I love it when my patients have a good dental experience, especially the fearful or first-time patients.
Why should you book an appointment with me?
I am patient and gentle with children. I’m also very thorough with my cleaning.
