On this week’s episode, we’re joined with Dr. Bisher Abotouk, a Bahrain-based music-loving dentist to discuss his Dent N Tunes project

Bisher‘s Dent N Tunes project wasn’t planned
In fact, the entire thing happened accidentally! Bisher details the moment it all happened when his friend Hazem Al Rawas came in with his guitar and got asked by the dentist himself to play while getting his teeth done. The rest is history.
The unique project also helps out artists
Bisher will often discount or completely waive off the dental bill for artists who perform in the clinic, which is totally supportive of creatives in Bahrain!
Dentistry runs in the family
Bisher is completely passionate about his work and love of transforming smiles, which is something that was passed down to him by his dentist mother Dr. Inas Adi, saying he spent most of his childhood growing up in the clinic!
