Why did you become a dentist?
I knew I wanted to go into healthcare; science has been my passion for as long as I can remember. I initially intended to go in Medical School but realized that dentistry was her true calling. I decision that I am forever thankful for.
What do you like most about being a dentist?
I love making a positive change in someone’s life. Teeth can greatly affect a patient’s quality of life and I believe everyone is deserving of that. Another highlight of my career is taking away a patient’s pain. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing a patient come in with pain, and leave without it. The relief in their eyes is fulfilling enough.
