Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?
“I have always had a passion for people and leadership. My dad was a fighter pilot in the Air Force growing up so I was obsessed with jets when I was young but as I grew up I became fascinated with what it takes to be a great leader. This led me to studying Psychology as an undergrad. I knew I didn’t want to work in academia and that I wanted to do something with my hands but for a few years I really didn’t know what I wanted to be when I grew up. Just after college I started to have some pain in my wisdom teeth and I was referred to go see a wonderful Dentist who really helped me change the course of my life. I walked into his office a little nervous but quickly became absolutely fascinated with everything around me. It was like a lightbulb went off and everything became so clear.
A Dentist gets to be a leader within his or her practice and community, they get to help and interact with all kinds of people everyday, and they get to work with their hands and create beautiful things. I feel so fortunate to be a member of my profession. I truly love what I do.”
