Up Close & Personal

What do you like most about your job?

I like forging unique bonds with my patients and their families, and of course, I love the amazing smile transformations that we achieve by not just straightening teeth but also transforming the nuances of the face and smile.

How do you see the future of dentistry?

In the future, effective orthodontic practices will work with the combined effort of human knowledge and an intelligent computer. Combining these strengths will greatly enhance the work we perform. With current technologies like intraoral scanners, Invisalign, Dental Monitoring, Suresmile, Insignia and Damon, this is soon going to be a reality.

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

I enjoy listening to all kinds of music and attending live concerts. I love travelling and trying new cuisines. I always keep up to date with the newest technologies and gadgets.

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

The entire time you’re wearing braces, one thing that will motivate you to keep going, is of course, how great your smile is going to look when it’s all over! Remember to follow all the necessary steps, including your check-ups, adjustments, and oral hygiene routine to make sure that the end result is absolutely perfect. Most importantly, remember that spending a few years wearing braces is worth a healthy, lifelong smile!
