Share with us a little about yourself. My name is Sung, I’m a junior majoring in biomedical sciences at the University of South Florida. I have a dog named Elsa and a cat named Tux, and they are my world. One of the reason I love teeth so much is because I am a foodie. Having good dental health allows me to enjoy food. Can’t eat food without strong teeth! I love dentistry because of a common goal we all share: helping others. I believe dentistry is one of the most fascinating careers because not only can you offer different treatment plans that’ll allow you to cater to patient’s needs, it offers extreme flexibility allowing you to express your creativity. 

Why do you want to be a dentist? I chose dentistry because of its flexibility, because it allows me to use my hand skills, and because outside of the box thinking is required.

What are you most excited about for dental school? I am extremely excited to finally learn about topics that I will apply to my future career, and I’m super excited to be involved and get closer to where I want to be.

Why do you think you’ll make a good dentist? I believe that one of the traits that will make me a good dentist is my compassion.

Share one thing on your bucket list: One thing on my bucket list is definitely sky diving.
