[00:00:02.680] I'm originally from West Africa, Mali, [00:00:08.360] but I did grow up in Ethiopia, Zambia, France, [00:00:11.440] and I've been in the United States for the past 22 years. [00:00:15.280] I decided to become a dentist because I knew [00:00:18.160] that I wanted to help people in being in the health care industry. [00:00:24.080] However, I chose dentistry because I see [00:00:28.680] that the artistic side of dentistry is something that really attracted me [00:00:33.520] because you can change people's smile and in changing their smile, [00:00:37.920] you will also change their lives, [00:00:40.360] and it's a very rewarding profession for me. [00:00:43.040] I want my patients to feel very comfortable [00:00:45.200] and feel like they're getting the best care possible. [00:00:48.640] My favorite part is being able to know about them, [00:00:51.840] good conversation, communication with the patients, [00:00:54.960] knowing what they need and how I can best help them. [00:00:59.160] The patient dental experience is very important [00:01:02.360] because that's what they will remember, [00:01:07.800] and that's what usually will cause them to refer your friends [00:01:13.600] and also come back to the office, [00:01:15.800] so once they have a good experience, the outcome is very good.
