"Around eight years ago, I realized that the importance of dentistry resides in the fact that it is a high-touch profession which interfaces with local and global communities through every person we come across. Therefore, a dentist does not exist in isolation; we are only impactful because we reside in the community we serve. It is due to this co-existence that I realized that in order to deliver the best level of healthcare possible, we actually need to fully invest ourselves in making sure our communities uniformly have access to the best of our knowledge." - Karishma Manji
