Why do you want to be a dentist?
For my 7th birthday, my parents gave me a dentist's play set. It became my favorite toy and opened my interest in the field. Once in 8th grade, my dad took me to the dental clinic where he worked as a lab technician, and I asked if I could shadow the dentist. Ever since I saw the combination of art, problem-solving, and manual dexterity, I fell in love with dentistry.

What are you most excited about for dental school?
Being able to start practicing my dream job and getting to meet wonderful people with the same goals as me is the most exciting feeling ever.

Why do you think you’ll make a good dentist?
I think I will be a good dentist because I am passionate about helping others, a good communicator, and artistic.

What excites you most about ASDA?
Two of the thing that excites me the most about ASDA are the lifelong involvement offered and the protection of the rights and interests of dental students.
