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 multi-cultural group of dentists who are from different countries like Greece, Malaysia, Armenia, and the Arab countries. This exposure to cultural diversity has enriched her life-experiences and impacted the way she 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 volunteering works 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 oral hygiene.
Dr. Muge moved to Dubai in January 2019 to join her husband who has been working here already. She was excited about relocating to Dubai because she knew about Dubai as a cosmopolitan and modern city that is also close to her culture. She knew that the city had much 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.”
Dr. Muge keeps herself active in her free time by practicing Kitesurfing, Biking, Tennis and Jivamukti Yoga. She is also a bookworm. She is a member of a book club that gives her the opportunity to discuss and exchange ideas with different people.
