After shadowing and interning at local dental practices, she knew dentistry was for her- she enjoys the mix of science and art that dentistry provides. Dr. Waseem enjoys how dentistry helps not only transform a patient's smile from the outside but also how they feel about themselves inside, whether it is taking a patient out of discomfort or enhancing a patient's smile.
