REJOVÉ is equipped with cutting-edge technology for treatments like Cosmetic Dentistry, Gum Treatment, Dental Implant, Orthodontics, Crowns and bridges, Dermatology, Botox, Cosmetology, and Hair Transplant.

What motivated you to pursue a career in Dentistry & Skin Care? How do you balance it with your interest in music?
In my opinion, Dentistry and Skin Care offer a perfect blend of aesthetics and science. They have an exceptional potential to change the way people see you and how you think about yourself, which helps to significantly increase self-confidence. I have always been inclined towards assisting people, especially with their self-confidence. Perhaps this was the greatest motivation behind why I chose to follow the path of developing my own clinic dedicated to dentistry and skincare.
For me singing is not just an interest or a hobby, it’s my passion and an integral part of my life. I always believe that work-life balance is not a success, it’s a cycle, and in fact, it’s a way of life for me. Although the pandemic things got a little difficult, but I found my way out of all this stress and workload. I am an early riser and that is the time when I do my riyaaz.
How has the pandemic affected women entrepreneurs in India? What are some of the challenges you have faced in your professional journey?
The pandemic was probably the single most calamitous disruption for women entrepreneurs here in India. 73% of women-led enterprises suffered the aftermath of Covid lockdown. To be honest, Dentistry and Skin Care are rather challenging professions to pursue. As far as my journey is considered I’ve had my share of highs & lows. Due to the rise of the pandemic, our international clientele has reduced which has altered our business outlook. But we continue to move forward with our unwavering commitment to serving people.
Share some tips for working women and busy mothers for quick and effective oral & skincare practices?
A few things that one could include along with their regular dental regime are the use of proper equipment such as using fluoride toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush. It is also important to add Fiber-rich fruits and vegetables along with sufficient dairy products to your daily diet. The nutrients and minerals derived from such items, not only help to provide sufficient nourishment but also helps to maintain adequate oral health.
Certain skincare practices that people should inculcate in their daily lives are protecting your skin from direct sunlight and avoiding the use of strong soaps and chemical-based cosmetic products. Having a healthy diet is also equally important for having good skin. Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins are something that one must include in their day-to-day diet to maintain healthy & younger-looking skin.
What is that one piece of advice that you’d like to give to the aspiring women entrepreneurs out there?
For all the women entrepreneurs out there, all that I’d like to say is dream big and look for happiness. This can only be achieved when you pursue a career that you truly love. For me, success has never been the key to happiness, it is actually the opposite: happiness is the key to success. If you believe in what you are doing, you will be successful in one way or the other. So, follow your dreams and don’t ever let anyone pull you back from accomplishing those dreams and aspirations.
How are you planning to expand your reach and network?
My goal has always been to build Rejove into one of the most trusted brands in the healthcare sector. To achieve this vision of mine, I have ensured to develop a perfect team comprising highly skilled professionals, and to support them we have inculcated state-of-the-art infrastructure in our medical clinics. The clinics are equipped with best-in-class technology such as a 3D scan system and other innovations to ensure the highest degree of client satisfaction. Apart from dentistry and skincare, we have also ventured into the field of trichology and aim to provide best-in-class hair treatment to our clients. It is my vision that Rejove Clinique should be recognised for quality treatment across the country by staying focused on our moral beliefs and philosophies.
