Meet the dentist
What I love about being a dentist is it gives the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life. Through them, I have learnt so much , not only about peoples’ lives and values but also about myself. I am enriched each day by my interactions with patients and staff in so many ways.. I look forward to getting to know my patients and what is important to them and help them achieve their goals for their dental health. In order to truly serve my patients well, I appreciate the importance of keeping up with new advances in dentistry. People are often surprised to know how much dentistry is constantly evolving! But what I have learnt is that every day is a new opportunity to be better than yesterday. I am excited to be actively engaged in this process and am constantly looking at ways to incorporate new technologies and materials that make for better patient experience, comfort and better quality dentistry.”
