From Engineering to Healing Smiles

My Journey to Dentistry

Hi, I’m Majid, the principal Dentist at EasyCare Family Dental. My journey to dentistry has been a fusion of personal growth and professional evolution. Inspired by my background in industrial engineering, I’ve honed skills in optimizing systems, which have proven invaluable in my dental practice. Pursuing further education, I earned an MBA from Multimedia University, driven by a fascination with the business aspects of engineering.

My academic journey was enriched by several years as a lecturer, during which I taught operations management and simulation to aspiring business students. It was during this time that I met my partner, and together, we decided to embark on a new chapter in Australia—a move that we envisioned as the culmination of a fulfilling life and career.

Through my diverse experiences and academic pursuits, I’ve cultivated a holistic approach to dentistry, informed by principles of efficiency, business acumen, and a deep sense of empathy. Each step of my journey has shaped me into the compassionate and skilled dentist I am today, dedicated to healing smiles and improving lives.

From Engineering to Dentistry: A Pivotal Moment and The Decision to Change

One pivotal experience changed my career trajectory completely. A severe toothache led me to a dental clinic, where I encountered a lack of empathy and human connection. The receptionist barely acknowledged me, and the dentist was hurried and impersonal. This experience made me realize that dentistry was more than just fixing teeth—it was about providing exceptional patient care and empathy.

Inspired by my negative experience, I decided to become a dentist who offers not only excellent care but also an outstanding patient experience. Pursuing this goal required years of extensive education and the delicate balance of family commitments with demanding studies. Juggling these responsibilities alongside a job outside of business hours to support my family made the journey even more challenging. Yet, with my wife’s support and encouragement, I embarked on the rigorous path through dental school.

Becoming a Dentist

I approached dental school with the same meticulous attention I had given to engineering. I immersed myself in both the technical and emotional aspects of patient care. Graduating with honors and completed my Bachelor of Oral Health and Dental Science and Master of Dentistry at Griffith University QLD. I opened my own dental practice that reflects my values: treating patients like family, ensuring no waiting times, and focusing on personal connections and delivering a pleasant experience.

My Practice Philosophy

In my practice at EasyCare Family Dental, I deeply value the comfort and well-being of my patients. That’s why even the initial treatment room is meticulously designed to capture natural light, creating a soothing atmosphere to alleviate anxiety. Dentistry isn’t just about treating teeth—it’s about addressing the holistic needs of each individual, including their emotional well-being. From the moment you reach out to us to the moment you leave, every interaction is filled with genuine care and thoughtfulness. My background in both engineering and healthcare gives me a unique perspective, allowing me to draw inspiration from various industries to continuously improve our practice.

A Thriving Practice

In East Brisbane and nearby areas, my empathetic approach to dentistry quickly gained recognition, fueling the growth of my practice. Our satisfied patients have openly shared their positive experiences, making word-of-mouth our most trusted marketing avenue. Recognizing the pivotal role of a happy team in delivering exceptional care, I prioritize fostering a motivated and contented staff. Our Google reviews showcase just a small fraction of the many satisfied patients we’ve had the privilege to assist on their dental journeys.

My transition from engineering to dentistry is a story of personal growth driven by empathy. It shows how much we learn from facing challenges and reminds us that our struggles help shape us into who we are meant to be. I hope my story inspires others to embrace their pivotal moments, see possibilities in every challenge, and pursue paths that bring fulfillment and positively impact the community.

I’m always committed to giving top-notch dental care. Come and challenge me – I love nothing more than making you a happy patient!
