2. What impact did your time at NYUCD have on your career and life?
 
Before coming to New York I was a general Dentist with provincial life experience . Now, I am a specialist who visits his colleagues' offices to conduct major surgeries and advanced cases, they otherwise could not manage.

Also, the life experience at NYUCD was fantastic! New York City gave me a broader perspective teaching me that you can always learn from different cultures that are living in the same city, and thus, evolve intellectually and spiritually. I would do it all again a thousand times!
