Profile Summary

I’m passionate towards my profession of dentistry, as I consider it to be the most rewarding profession. Because the scope of a dentist’s work is much broader today than ever before .Dentists are oral health experts. They have the skills, training and expertise to know how the health of your teeth, gums and mouth relate to your general health. Research evidences shows that the link between oral health and general health is strong.My achievement as dentist would be the professional development through acquiring information being generated by dental research. At IGIDS, my profession offers many opportunities for ongoing learning and professional growth through continuing education courses and seminars. Second, as a teacher, apart from fostering my students I create awareness to patients and general public about the importance of regular dental exams and good oral hygiene. I consider educating patients and public on the potential threats to the oral health, such as use of tobacco products, maintaining overall health through good nutrition and stress management is a must in today’s complex life style.
