ABOUT ME

Currently starting work as a foundation dentist in Cambridgeshire where I hope to elevate my practice from safe beginner to high-quality and predictable dentistry through an ethical, compassionate approach. In my work, I am striving to provide minimally invasive yet life-changing dentistry for patients in a timely manner. To work towards this goal, I have been undertaking hands-on workshops, attending national conferences and organising mentorship with renowned dentists in their fields.

Dental school has been not only been a stepping stone for learning the foundations of dentistry, but a place to challenge myself through seeking advanced postgraduate-level rehabilitation cases and learn from experienced mentors, learning new techniques for restoring teeth and re-organising occlusion. I find the process of restorative dentistry especially exciting and impactful, and hope to build on this interest through continuing professional development.

Outside of dentistry, I am drawn to music. Although I am a classically trained pianist, I have ventured into more popular music, playing at my university "Friday Night Jazz Ensemble (FriNJE)" as well as the clarinet in wind orchestra and symphony orchestra. Other hobbies of mine include yoga and badminton.
