I always used to love visiting my pediatric dentist as a child. At the age of 10, I announced to my parents that I would become a pediatric dentist; I appreciate the support and encouragement they have shown me throughout my journey. I have always loved working with kids. In my mid-teens, I enjoyed working with children as a track and field coach and as camp counselor. Once in university, a summer internship at the dental department of a pediatric hospital confirmed that my childhood dream was meant to be. I met Dr Nikoui in 2003 while practicing in Montreal when she shared her vision for her future dental practice. I decided to join her new clinic so I have been blessed to work with a wonderful team ever since.

I think every interaction with children plays a key role in shaping their future, and I am privileged to be able to have these interactions.
