“Let Me Share With You My Thoughts On Dentistry…” “When I began my dental career, I knew I wanted to offer my patient’s top-of-the-line dental care. I wanted to be able to offer the healthiest treatment available, and I wanted the opportunity to change the lives of my patients. I have worked long and hard to achieve the degrees, certificates, and create a lecturing field, but it still comes down to this:” the feeling I get when I see someone cry the moment they see their new smile, the feeling I get when I see the renewed confidence and self-esteem that has been given back to a patient, and the feeling I get knowing I can extend a grandparent’s life by 10 years, giving them 10 more years to celebrate life with other loved ones…Personal Satisfaction. There is nothing that feels greater than to change someone’s life by creating a beautiful, healthy smile.”
