    Dentist GDC - 187228 -- BSCH in Dentistry 1999

    I have been working as a dentist for 13 years and have spent the last two years having a great experience in the UK, working for Oasis. My main interest is conservative dentistry and prevention, as I believe that working hard in education can prevent the majority of oral diseases.

    Whenever I can, I enjoy outdoor activities as contact with nature is the best medicine for me.
