It’s my passion and I enjoy it very much. Helping the doctors create beautiful smiles and seeing patients out of pain gives me a sense of fulfillment.

I must also say, that I love my family and they are the greatest blessing and gift that God has given me. I believe in spreading kindness and infect people with love, not hate.
