“I am an person who believes that hard work and positive thinking is the key to a happy and successful life. I enjoy outdoor life and relax and rejuvenate outside the dental practice by walking, running and mountain climbing”

At work, am a highly motivated and focused dental professional who pride myself on my thoroughness and concern for my patients well being. I believe that taking time to talk to patients explaining dental disease helps them understand about their oral healthcare and general health.

A big achievement for me has been working for charity Dentaid in Nepal where I set up an emergency dental clinic for families with little or no access to dental care.

At Platinum Dental Care I look forward to meeting you and providing you with preventative hygiene care before you embark on your restorative care with the dentist so that together we can help you achieve a healthy mouth and beautiful smile.”
