Q: The global pandemic has had a profound impact on the mental and emotional well-being of healthcare providers worldwide. How were you able to navigate the challenges Covid-19 presented?

A: I will be forever thankful for the tremendous strength and perseverance my team has shown throughout the pandemic. From a business perspective, it was quite scary. I am grateful for my team’s constant support. The pandemic also made me want to bring awareness to the added stress and pressure placed on healthcare providers. We are all doing our best to be there for our patients and provide the highest quality of service. As members of our community, we can help by motivating each other to be kind.

These past two years have been difficult for everyone in every industry. What I love about the Northern Virginia area is that when I opened my practice in 2014, I was pleasantly surprised by how accepting everyone was of me, someone with an accent who came from a different culture. Although no one here knew me, they still gave me a chance. As a result, I was able to build a successful practice and deliver the best dental care possible to our patients, all while having fun and meeting new people in our community. I can genuinely say that my patients bring positivity and happiness to my life.

My message to our community: Kindness breeds health and happiness. So, just like my little patients, let’s bring good vibes to everyone during these hard times and make people in our community feel supported.
