What’s the most rewarding part of your job?

It's so rewarding to be able to create connections with those you meet. You work to establish trust through a mutual understanding that we are in it together to get you to the state of health you want to achieve. At the same time, we are also able to be human and just have a great experience together.

What dental stereotype are you most passionate about changing?

"I only need to go to the dentist if I have a problem." Dental care and routine check ups are so important! People often forget that dental care isn't only cosmetic or a "treat" for themselves. We use our mouths every day and it is so important that we are able to continue doing the things we love - like eating, drinking, speaking and telling bad jokes.

__What is the absolute coolest thing about the human mouth? __

Wounds in the mouth heal faster than other parts of your body mostly due to the presence of saliva!

In another life, if you weren’t working in dentistry, what would you be doing?

It would be a dream to travel around the world and taste-test pastries! Croissants, kouign amanns and anything with puff pastry in particular!

When I’m in the patient chair, I’m probably grooving to {blank} in my headphones.
