Additional Information

I am an international dentist with bachelors in dental surgery. I have worked for 4 years after my graduation in 2005 in India as an associate dentist. After marriage and moving to USA, I took a break from my profession due to family obligations. My frequent visits to India gave me an opportunity to carry on my dental profession. I engaged myself in different volunteering opportunities in USA community centres helping refuges. After becoming US citizen in 2018 I was able to focus on NBDE exams and passed both the exams in my first attempt. After receiving my 'Dental Hygiene License' in 2022, I am now keen to perceive my career as a Dental Hygienist.
