Dr. Muge was born, raised and did her education in Istanbul. She is from a Turkish family following the Western way of life while preserving the traditional values of Turkish culture. During the 6 years of her pursuing the PhD, she studied with a multicultural group of dentists who are from around the world such as Greece, Malaysia, Armenia and Arab countries. This exposure of cultural diversity has enriched her life experiences and impacted the way that she has shaped her life afterward. Her interest in learning about new cultures has made her an avid traveler who has visited around 50 countries so far.
As a dentist, Dr. Muge’s objective is to improve people’s lives by creating natural, beautiful, and healthy smiles. Seeing the impact of these smiles she has created on people’s self-esteem is the biggest happiness in her life. It keeps her motivated in her professional life. She is keen on constantly improving her knowledge through continuous education. She also draws inspiration from the positivity of her talented colleagues.
Dr. Muge was a part of several volunteering events during her university years. She has volunteered to conduct free dental screenings to evaluate the oral health of school children and to educate them on ways to improve their oral hygiene.
Dr. Muge moved to Dubai in January 2019 to join her husband who has been working in the country. She was excited about relocating because she knew Dubai as a cosmopolitan and modern city that is also close to her culture. She knew that the city had plenty to offer for her personal and professional development. She loves Dubai’s weather, lifestyle and the friendships that the city has gifted her. Getting involved in the multicultural lifestyle in Dubai makes her feel like a global citizen. “I think Dubai is a very good representation of the world,’’ says Dr. Muge. “I feel safer than anywhere else I have ever lived.”
Apart from work, she is an adventurous traveler and is keen on skiing, tennis, and Jivamukti yoga.
