I am proud to be part of the dental profession.
Dentists are, I believe, some of the most caring people I know. Our profession is constantly trying to identify and develop better ways to treat the needs of our patients; we are always searching for more efficient, comfortable procedures and discovering new ways to provide longer-lasting, stable results.
The most exciting thing to me, as a dentist, is helping a patient in a way that changes their view of dentistry. When someone leaves our office feeling excited about what they had done, and no longer afraid, I feel like I have really made a difference in their life!
