Q: WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO BECOME A DENTIST?
At a young age I knew I wanted to work in the health care field. My 8-year-old self would have simply said “I want to help people.” In my teen years, I really enjoyed going to the dentist. I liked the aspect of educating patients about oral health care and managing patients when they were in pain. So, I decided I wanted to pursue a career in dentistry.
