Hailing from Bharatpur in the North-Indian state of Rajasthan, the couple moved to the UAE in 2015 after serving in Saudi Arabia, India, and Nepal.

The duo took up dental jobs at a local hospital in Dubai, before establishing their own multi-specialty polyclinic at Port Saeed in Deira and Ibn Batuta Mall.

“After living in the UAE for six years, it feels like home. I am forever grateful to the great leadership of the UAE. I feel honored,” Dr Sharma said.

Dr Sharma holds a Masters Degree in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics, while Dr Pathak pursued her Masters Degree in paediatric and preventive dentistry from Manipal University in the South Indian state of Karnataka.

The dentist couple say they are keen to bring in the latest innovations and techniques in dentistry to the UAE and make it available to the people at affordable prices.

“It is a general notion that dental services are expensive, but our aim is to make it as reasonable as possible,” Dr Sharma added.
