MY JOURNEY

Top 10 Burning Questions You Always Wanna Ask Your Favourite Dentist But Never Really Got The Chance

1. What’s your most favourite thing you love being a dentist?

Dr. Justin: The pure satisfaction when patients thank me for a pleasant experience, or when the procedure went well or exceeded expectations gives me a fuzzy feeling all over.

 

2. What’s the most complex operation you’ve done in your dental career?

Dr. Justin: Wow! The most complex procedure I’ve ever taken on is trying to do a root canal treatment on an upper right wisdom tooth with 3 root canals! It was super tough, but I got it right in the end.

 

3. What is the most important skill you think a dentist should have, and why?

Dr. Justin: Any good dentist worth their salt should be experts at managing patients anxiety, in addition to their professional skills. If you cannot handle their anxiety, you can’t treat them. It’s as simple as that.

 

4. How has being a dentist impacted your life so far?

Dr. Justin: I get to see so many people from all walks of life, of different ages and races. It opens your eyes to people! Respecting people for who they are and understanding their culture and treating them how they would like to be treated.

 

5. What do you love most about your workplace?

Dr. Justin: We have a great team, and the culture we adapt is one from NZ, where we take our time to get to know our patients and making them feel at home before we get down to business. We treat everyone as real people and respect their needs, not as a subject to “practice on” or an ATM machine.

 

6. What’s a typical day like for you?

Dr. Justin: I start my day with a good big breakfast (to get me energized for the day till lunch), spend some time with my kids before they go to school. I say a prayer everyday with my wife on my way to work. I always make sure I am ready for any patients and check my schedule before hand to prepare myself. Of course when the case needs me to be more focused I will book my patients in for longer appointments so I won’t rush my treatment. Once my work is done at the clinic, I always look forward to going home to spend time with my wife and 4 lovely children.

 

7. Who do you look up to as a role model?

Dr. Justin: The ex-Prime Minister of New Zealand, John Key. A respectable leader who puts his family first!

 

8. When and how did you decide to become a dentist?

Dr. Justin: I believe it was a calling for me to be a dentist. I felt that becoming a dentist was God’s plan for me. The decision was not hard for me as all the right doors just opened up for me. I truly enjoy being a dentist and seeing my patients’ smiles made it all worthwhile.

 

9. How was your first dental experience like?

Dr. Justin: It was at primary school and I had my baby tooth taken out for reasons unknown to me. I only know that the injection juice tasted really bitter and I walked out with a numb lip. I wasn’t scared at my first visit, but I sure was at my second one!!

 

10. What books are you reading at the moment?

Dr. Justin: The Magic of Thinking Big by David Schwartz
