Why do you want to be a dentist?
My passion for density came after shadowing in a local dental clinic. However, I knew that I wanted to be a dentist after traveling on a medical mission trip to Nicaragua. On this trip, we set up a dental clinic and treated approximately 1,000 patients. Working under compromised conditions in a third world country opened my eyes to how much dentistry can impact and improve a person’s quality of life.

What are you most nervous about for dental school?
I am most nervous about the new challenges that dental school will present.  

Why do you think you’ll make a good dentist?
I think that I will make a good dentist because I am driven, compassionate, and work well with people.
