Dr. Barekzi's entry into dentistry started when he worked as a dental assistant and continued throughout dental school. Early on, he realized subtle things necessary to be a great dentist, such as listening to his patients. It is important to address the needs of patients and also the importance of educating them. Patients appreciate the time Dr. Barekzi takes to inform them why a procedure is necessary for their oral and overall health.
Dr. Barekzi's ambition is to show patients, through his work, that dentistry does not have to be painful or uncomfortable. Patients express nothing but gratitude for his gentle hands and excellent chair-side manner.
It's fulfilling for Dr. Barekzi when a patient tells him how their dental procedures were not as bad as they anticipated (they would be.)
