Without hard work, nothing grows but a mustache!
The idea for IDA came about when I was a teacher at Karolinska Institute, but much to my dismay when I voiced my ideas, no one believed it was something worth pursuing. However knowing the challenges I and many other dentists who come to Sweden face, it was no longer a matter of “if”, but “when” will I pursue IDA. I did not know what I was going to call it, how I would do it, what I did know was there are many talented dentists that deserve a fair chance to thrive!
My story begins in the early 00’s ,when my family moved back to Sweden; I was in my late teens and I had just completed high school abroad because of this, I faced difficulties in my application process to universities in Sweden. At the time I was debating whether to move to London and pursue architecture or dentistry, ultimately I chose dentistry in Iran.

The same administration recommended that I should apply for KUT. Remembering a customer of mine at the pharmacy I worked at back in London, who was a dentist from Stockholm, after conversing, he asked me why I haven’t applied for KUT. I was not even aware of such a program.
“In 2015, right before completing the KUT one year program to obtain my Swedish dental license. I quickly realised without hard work, nothing grows but a mustache.”
My first job was at Bromma Hospital,followed by an opportunity to teach at Karolinska Institute and supervise students at the clinic. This gave me the opportunity to teach many wonderful students and work with a fantastic team of educators.
I had been interested in teaching for quite some time at this point. It was then that I noticed that dentists coming from countries outside of the EU, received little to no help.
