“I have been involved in the dental profession from the age of 19 at its different levels, from my education to acquire the requisite knowledge and skills, to community and private practice, and eventually teaching. The great privilege of this job is that it has given me the chance to see, speak to, and get involved with an amazingly diverse population on a daily basis. This has been an ongoing source of life experience and delight throughout the past 20 years.
“I believe that making even the smallest changes to a patient’s cosmetics and function can go a long way. Dentistry gives me the fulfillment of creating a piece of art while improving the health of my patients.” – Dr. Foroutan
