I immigrated to Canada from Albania 17 years ago with my husband. We had only a few hundred dollars with us and a big dream of building something ours but not much else. I spoke no English and my school meant nothing here so I had to start everything from scratch. I worked seven days a week while going to school full time. After a few years of finishing school and getting my licence as a registered dental hygienist, I founded DentalX in 2013. DentalX started with only me, booking appointments in my car and seeing patients in the late afternoons or Sundays after I worked all day for other dental offices. Now I have an award winning dental office with 12 staff members.
I remember thinking: one day I will have my own clinic. People around me called me a dreamer and said I was crazy, but guess what, they were wrong! Never give up on your dreams, no matter what others may say!
