I believe dentistry to be the perfect fusion of art and science, demanding the blending of artistry with skillful techniques. When creating a new smile, a dentist must have a sense of harmony and of the patient's individuality. In my opinion, dentists are also healthcare educators who have a profound impact on the way patients lead their lives. It is essential to create trust with a patient through thorough exams, taking time to explain why treatment is needed and provide a comfortable environment for the patient. The highest reward is to see my patients’ happy smiles and improved oral health and appearance, which in turn affect their self-confidence and overall quality of life.
