What do you enjoy most in your role: ''I enjoy doing the dentistry and talking to patients on what is possible with their mouth. I wanted to be a doctor for most of my life as I wanted to help people and when patients come to me for their care, that is what I want to do, I want to help them. So being a trusted advisor to my patients about their oral health and treating any issues they may have and helping them get better is what I really enjoy. There is no better feeling for me than helping a patient get out of pain, or helping them eat again, or sleep better, or helping them smile again. When I can help make such a positive impact on a patient's life like that, that's what makes it worth it."
If you could have a superpower, what would it be? ''Telekinesis. Imagine being able to move objects with your mind, I think that would be cool. You could technically fly with that ability which would be cool. it would make it easier to work on someone with a small mouth that is for sure as I wouldn't have to use my hands 🙂 And for my fellow Star Wars fans, it would be the closest thing to using the Force!"
Which famous person or character on the wall at BFD would you most like to meet? "It's a toss-up between Chris Hemsworth who plays Thor, or Gal Gadot who plays Wonder Woman. Both did such a great job portraying these awesome superheroes that to I grew up reading about in the comics that to me, meeting them would be the closest to meeting these heroes in real life. Also I have read that both stars are super nice and down to earth."
