Dr Ahmed Al Kaffas aka the smile ambassador is one of the pioneers in the field of dentistry in Egypt and we are honored for the chance we got to sit with him and chat about his lifestyle that got us to discover interesting sides of him that truly inspired us.
For starters, Dr Al Kaffas tells us that he always tries as much as he can to hit the gym even if he has a busy schedule at the clinic, and if he has the time to squeeze in exercise then we absolutely have no excuse to skip on workouts!
Also, we found out that he is a food lover who is loyal to our very own Egyptian cuisine! I mean oriental food is truly the best, what with the Molokhey and vine leaves, which are his favorite dishes.
When asked about his favorite actor, Dr Al Kaffas revealed to us his inner cinematic geek and told us that he enjoys the plot as a whole as well as the music and scenario of the film and so he doesn’t really have a favorite actor in specific.
‘I can’t imagine being in any other field other than dentistry, but if I have to choose then I think I would have went for business school instead’ he said when asked what he would have been if not a dentist.
According to him, social media has become a very important part in any profession and he himself find great interest in it.
The worst comment you have ever received on social media? His answer to that was ‘You’re too young.’
As a doctor, he encounters great deal of pressure and when we asked how he deals with it, he told us that he would shut off his phone and stay at home with his boy where he finds comfort in his company.
He tells us he respects the competition but that he is always prepared with new technologies to offer and a well-equipped clinic in order for him to stand out amongst other competitors.
When asked about his favorite part of the day, he showed great passion to his career by telling us that his favorite part is spending time at the clinic where he finds comfort in what he does best, not only that but he also tells us that seeing a patient satisfied and happy about his smile, gives him so much pleasure and faith in what he does.
Are you a risk taker? Dr Ahmed says he is not because he likes everything to be organized and planned, and that the craziest thing he has ever done is following our national team all the way to Russia for the World Cup and leaving everything behind.
‘What makes us different is that we love what we do and we like our results to be different than others’ and to offer the highest standards in dentistry.’ Dr Al Kaffas said when asked about what makes the clinic different.
For those of you who don’t know, Dr Ahmed Al Kaffas was awarded Dentist of the year 2019 in Insight magazine, and when we asked him about the award, he said: ‘I don’t really take titles into consideration, because what truly matters is the satisfaction of patients and delivering them with the treatment they deserve and to always exceed their expectations.’
Now that was one truly inspirational interview of a man who is multi-talented and very passionate about his work and keen on the comfort of his patients.

Your Ultimate Self Care Pampering Routine
We’re all used to waiting for the weekend excitingly to go to parties, hang out with some friends, or maybe even go on a road trip to Sokhna or Gouna, whichever you prefer! Cairo specifically is well known to be the hot-spot for social interactions.
Last weekend, Egypt had gone through one of its toughest storms yet. We were warned prior to the storm about the extremities of the situation and the entire weekend had gone up in flames. Due to the heavy rain, the aftermath was pretty bad. Many animals had died, a few people had gotten electrocuted, streets were flooded and destroyed, and buildings as well as homes had gotten damaged as well. So there was nothing you could do but stay at home and stay safe.
Unfortunate for us, the Coronavirus pandemic has been growing more serious by the minute and strict safety precautions are being taken to “break the chain” and keep people safe. Since everyone is stressed out and need to take a chill pill, we’ve constructed the ultimate home self-care pamper routine for this Thursday! Read on for the full guide.
Part of self care is to love yourself and do something productive, because at the end of the day, productivity boosts your energy and motive to do something positive and healthy. Most importantly, take your time to have some gratitude for everything you have.
Wake Up A bit Early
Rather than sleeping in lazily and waking up late is not the right way to start your day. Since you’ll most probably be sending the day at home because every place is closed, you’ll end up leading into an unproductive cycle throughout the day! Wake up at 8:30AM. Take your time to appreciate the process and plan for the cozy yet productive day a head. This time, you’ll have enough time to give yourself some time to wake up without the stress of having to run through your day like a robot. Enjoy the process, and be one step ahead of everyone!
Move Your Body
Tale the time to stretch your body out for as long as you want to, as long as your body needs. Try listening to your body and doing what it needs: To rest and feel healthy. Take your time to meditate, stretch, and even workout! Moving your body sends a lot of positive energy to the mind and body which is exactly what you need on this fine day!
Eat Healthy & With Gratitude
Since the pampering process of the day is to truly feel and enjoy every moment the day, make sure to get something healthy and organic in your tummy. You could make smoothie bowls with all your favorite fruits and maybe fill it with a dose of healthy nuts to boost your immune system! At the same time, try to eat slowly and appreciate the gift of life that you have been granted. Appreciate every single moment because there are many people who have been stripped of such privilege.
Bubble Bath & Feed the Brain
The best part of your routine is that you’re going to love and care for your body. Take the time to run yourself a warm bath. Prior to your bath, go purchase some organic herbs like Lavender, Rosemary, and other healthy relaxing herbs from mother nature. Add your bath bomb and light up a few candles. Soak in the warm concoction you’ve made for yourself and grab a good book to pass the time and feed the brain.
Indulge in Your Skin Care
Since you have the time to do everything right and love yourself, enjoy putting on your skin care creams and even get a face mask done! If you don’t have any, you could make your very own at home with ingredients you definitely have in your kitchen!
