Why Did You Become A Dentist?
Since I was young I had a dream to work in a profession that deals mainly with people, to help, comfort and relieve pain. Because I enjoy drawing, carving and working with my hands, I was seeking a “hands-on” profession. Hence Dentistry became my profession of choice as it combines both art and science. I always knew that you can dramatically change a person’s life by changing his or her smile.
