Up Close & Personal with Dr. Erum Aurangzeb

What do you like most about your job?

I have to say ‘My patients”. I love creating an exceptional experience for my patients by improving their confidence and self-esteem and meeting our treatment objectives. I love a bit of everything: the planning, the communication with my patients, the creative aspect, and working to plan treatments with my co-workers.

How do you see the future of Orthodontics?

Technology will play a pivotal role in the future by possibly shortening the treatment duration. Systems like Invisalign will become more common and more accurate in straightening the teeth. Types of patients will change as more adult patients will choose to opt for orthodontic treatment due to these changing trends.

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

I like to plan my annual trips to different countries with my husband and two children, Eman and Hyder and to experience new cultures and cuisine. I also enjoy visiting museums and art galleries and watching period dramas.

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

There is a trademark “A healthy smile, it is good for life”. To achieve this, the teeth must be clean and properly positioned. We always need to justify the treatment to our patients but at the same time make sure that their chief concern is addressed. Not every patient needs Orthodontic treatment but we certainly need to care for their teeth. That is why they have come to see us. My advice to all my patients: it is never too late to start orthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth or to fix your bite.
