Talking about the future of the profession and the importance of self-development, Günay said that "The dental profession is far beyond what you might have imagined, like an iceberg, just the tip of it... There is much more than that, and it hides itself. As the student puts effort, it opens the hidden places. As these are opened, the brightness of the profession increases even more. It gains a quality that supports and feeds the opinion that ‘I am glad that I have preferred dentistry’. Dentistry has many doors that expand and enrich the world of a person. It is possible to look at the dental profession not only from one window, but from many windows. According to the window you look at, you see many different sides of the profession. In addition to medical knowledge, you will also need to learn respect, compassion and reverence for people to make error-free decisions. Never forget that."
