Up Close & Personal

What do you like most about your job?

I like that it gives me the chance to touch people’s lives directly. I create this close relationship and connection with my patients which is something really nice because at the end of the day, it gives this humanitarian touch to our career.

I also love the fact that it gives the chance to create smiles while implementing my love for the arts in terms of photography, crafting, and building things.

How do you see the future of dentistry?

We’re going into painless dentistry. We’re going into the era of breaking the stereotypes of painful dentistry. We have to educate people of going more natural, changing and improving the smiles but trying to value the teeth we have. People should know the value of their natural teeth to treat it painlessly.

The future of dentistry is painless dentistry, same-day dentistry, and digital dentistry.

What are your hobbies? What do you like to do outside of work?

I used to be a member of the Water Polo team in Syria. I like photography, especially macro photography and portraits. I also like painting and listening to classical music.

What is the best advice you can give to your patients?

Patients should take care of their teeth to avoid damaging them, not just because they want to avoid seeing the dentist. Whenever they want to do changes in their teeth, it should be done with the right person in the right manner, understanding that the teeth are irreversible.

Appreciate your teeth, take care of them, and see your dentist regularly even if you have healthy teeth. Because in order to keep them healthy, you should have someone to sponsor them and take care of them.
