I wanted to be a dentist because dentistry combines all of my interests that I had. Growing up, I was really into technology, I was really into biology and healthcare and science. And dentistry combines all of those interests and all of those passions and allows me to use those to help fix people's problems. It's some combination of dentistry, art, science, medicine, all together at once, and it presents new challenges and new problems to solve every day. When my patients come to visit me, I want them to feel like I care about their needs, their concerns, their problems. But not just me, my staff, that they also are empathetic towards whatever their needs are. I want my patients to feel comfortable. I want them to feel like they can ask me anything. No stupid questions. What do you want to know about what we need to do or what we can do? I think my favorite part is making the connection with the patients and being able to do things for them maybe that someone else couldn't do. They really feel like they're getting the best quality of care that we can provide for them.
