Why should new patients choose you as their dentist?Besides dental education from one of the best dental schools in the US, I also have a Masters from an Ivy League university. I like to focus on the person overall and correlate mouth to the complete body health. I have been to dental missions in India and Kenya to help various communities in need. These experiences have taught me to be more compassionate and caring as a dentist.
What is the most important thing patients should believe and why?Patients should believe that I have only their best interest at heart and I try to go the extra mile to help them achieve what they want, whether that’s to get out of pain ASAP or to get a beautiful smile.
How do you spend your time outside the office?I really enjoy exploring underwater life with snorkeling and scuba diving. I also love traveling and experiencing different cultures and places. Some of my other passions includes fostering animals in need, and volunteering at dental societies and community events.
What made you decide to become a dentist?Since I was a kid, I was very artistic and loved to paint and use my hands to create. I was also very interested in science and my parents encouraged me in the field. Dentistry combined both of my interests while enabling me to help people, which is why I knew this was the right career choice for me. Interacting with different people every day and making them smile is so amazing and rewarding.
