Tell us about what you do and why?
As a child, I was always obsessed with teeth. I remember being astonished that my sister wouldn’t clean her teeth properly and can very vividly recall our first dental appointment where she revealed a large hole in her tooth. You could say that the dental field was one that I had a close affinity to from the start! Now working as a dentist, I focus on preventative nutrition and the oral-systemic link.
