What made you choose dentistry as a career?
I had a dental phobia myself from an early childhood experience and know that those moments can stay with us. I went on to have years of orthodontic treatment, with an amazing orthodontist that showed me that dental experiences did not have to be feared. I hope to be that point of difference and change for someone else.
What advice would you give someone who hasn’t been to a dentist in more than a year?
The hardest 2 steps are making that initial appointment and walking through the front door.
What toothbrush do you recommend and why?
I personally use an Oral B electric toothbrush for is compact size to reach those difficult back teeth and oscillating motion that we are trying to mimic when using a manual toothbrush. The handy built in timer and pressure sensor also ensure I get the most out of my brushing.
