Q1: How did you find yourself in dental?
After I finished college in the US, I was working in the marketing department of a large chemical company for several years and made a lot of professional connections. One of these connections led me to my next role, which was in the dental industry. I have stayed in the industry ever since.
Q2: What is your favorite thing about working in the dental field?
I like that it is so versatile and that it keeps evolving. I am excited about the constant developments and innovations that keep the industry buzzing.
Q3: If you could wave a magic wand and change the dental industry, what would you like to change?
That is a tough question. One thing I can think of are the medical device/medical products regulations globally. It would be nice to see a more unified approach so that dentists the world over can get access to the latest technologies.
Q4: With all the changes in the dental practice due to the changeover to digital dentistry, what do you think dentists need the most right now?
I think dentists need efficient and straightforward digital dental technology solutions to meet the fast-paced daily demands with timely results that are also precisely fitting and esthetically appealing.
Q5: When you are not working, what are you doing?
I really enjoy traveling, art, live music, hiking and riding my mountain bike.
