When asked what she enjoys most about her profession, her response is a testament of her eager enthusiasm for life, "Performing root canal treatments is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get! Every day is a joyful challenge. The best part of all is creating a positive experience for patients as they find that a root canal is a painless procedure that can rid them of pain and infection and can save teeth that otherwise would have been lost."
