“I can truly relate to parents’ struggles when it comes to raising kids in an ex-pat environment. I enjoy sharing parenting tips with my little patients’ parents daily”. Coming from a multicultural background, she speaks French, English and Arabic, Spanish, and Dutch. She says, “This brings me closer to my little patients and families I treat”.
She gathers an extensive experience of 18 years in her field of Pediatric Dentistry and Early Orthodontics, from training and practicing in both private clinics as well as hospital-based settings, in North America, as well as in the Middle East and GCC countries.
She currently resides in Dubai with her husband and children, where her practice focuses on seeing children as early as One for their first dental visit, early prevention of Oral Childhood caries, and early correction of facial growth and malocclusions in children.
She is one of the very first Invisalign First providers in the Middle East, and an expert in treating and managing special needs children; she had an important role in raising oral health awareness across nurseries, schools, community, medical and educational events, and media channels in the Middle East and GCC region.
