"Being a mother, wife, daughter over the last thirteen years, I have been blessed with four degrees, a successful and thriving practice and perhaps my biggest achievement of all; becoming a mother to my three children. Needless to say, it's been quite a journey and I am now ecstatic to be a part of “Successful Women in Dentistry”! "
Dr. Duri Hafiz
"I acquired my dental office at the end of March, 2019. Before starting my practice, I ensured that I was confident in both the clinical and the business sides of running a dental office. When I felt ready to own my own practice, I preferred to build it from the ground up. Only a few months after I purchased my practice, the pandemic hit. When dental offices were not allowed to operate, I took the free time that I had as an opportunity to do more courses and to prepare for reopening. My approach to dentistry is patient centric and this guides my decision making in regards to my practice. "
