I loved going to the dentist, since my dentist was a close friend of my father and he was very kind.

What (or who) inspired you to get into dentistry? How so?

My dentist as a kid. Since he was very good at his job and always had a positive mood. Also, my mentor in Toronto whom I did several hours of shadowing and volunteering with. She encouraged me to work and study hard to become a dentist.

What’s the most rewarding part of your job?

When my patients are satisfied and happy with the result of their treatments and recommend me to their friends and family.
