Dentist by Day, DJ by Night: Meet Zaiten, the Master of Bite and Sound

Anfernee, also known as Zaiten, is a one-of-a-kind individual who has successfully combined his two life passions: dentistry and DJing. While most of us struggle to balance our professional and personal lives, Zaiten has found a way to make his work and hobbies work in perfect harmony.

Zaiten’s interest in music began when he was a child. His parents owned electronics and sound system supplies, so he was constantly surrounded by music. However, he chose to pursue a career in dentistry, earning his degree from Centro Escolar University and opening his own clinic. Despite his hectic schedule, Zaiten’s love of music never waned.

Zaiten came across a brand new Numark CDN MKIII that his father had purchased for their company one day. Intriguingly, he began to research and learn the art of mixing. He was hooked on beat matching after learning the basics from his father and uncle. He began playing at rave parties at school and small bars, gradually establishing a reputation as a skilled DJ. He enrolled in Beat Project Manila to hone his skills. Soon after, he was competing in several DJ competitions throughout the city, finishing third in the Hite Jinro DJ competition. He also competed in the San Mig Light DJ competition three times, reaching the semi-finals on the third attempt. He has also performed in Tuguegarao and the Metro with Funk Avy and Marc Marasigan, to name a few.

Despite his success in the music industry, Zaiten never forgot his dedication to his dental practice. He makes sure to schedule his gigs around his dental appointments, never sacrificing the quality of care he provides. His dental clinic is strategically located near clubs and bars, making it easier for him to transition from his dental practice to his gigs. It’s not uncommon to see Zaiten leave his clinic in his scrubs and walk straight to the DJ booth, ready to entertain the crowd. People from the nightlife industry are among his clients. It’s genius how he markets both professions by intertwining them, such as after drinking and eating at nightouts, you can schedule your dental appointment afterwards.

Being a dentist by day and a DJ by night is the perfect balance for Zaiten. He gets to pursue two interests and excel at both. He demonstrates that having multiple careers is possible if you are committed and passionate about what you do.

Zaiten’s story is an inspiring reminder that it is never too late to pursue your dreams. You can always find a way to combine your hobbies and your career, whether you’re a dentist who enjoys music or a lawyer who enjoys painting. It may take some extra effort and commitment, but it is possible to live a fulfilling life doing what you love. In addition to DJing and Dentistry, he is a skilled dubstep producer.

The fact that Zaiten has been so successful in both of his chosen fields is evidence of his commitment, diligence, and enthusiasm. His story demonstrates that with the right mentality and a dedication to doing one’s best, it is possible to pursue multiple interests and careers at the same time. The way that Zaiten has managed to successfully combine his professional life with the pursuit of his hobbies and interests is a model worthy of praise by anyone.  It’s never too late to pursue your dreams and make them a reality.
