Q: What brings you the most satisfaction in your work?

A: My father taught me that it isn’t work if you love what you do. The opportunity to use my skills and experience to help people every day is most rewarding; I can’t imagine doing anything else.

At MOSA Bethesda, I relish the entire process of meeting a patient, understanding their needs and concerns and addressing them. I enjoy getting to know my patients and connecting with them on a personal level, allowing me to provide a holistic experience and customized treatments that result in optimal outcomes. 

Q: What is an example of a time you helped a patient that you’re particularly proud of?

A: I remember taking care of a young child who was rushed to the emergency room with facial swelling due to an untreated dental abscess related to multiple carious teeth. Working closely with the pediatric anesthesia team to secure the airway, drain the abscess and treat the infection in an expedited manner made me truly appreciate the importance of the service we provide and the difference we can make in people’s lives. I will never forget the look of gratitude in the parents’ eyes. 

Q: What is the one thing that your patients should know about you?

A: Empathy was the driving force in my decision to become an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. I truly believe in treating every patient the same way I would treat one of my own family members.
