Why do you want to be a dentist?
First and foremost, I wanted to help people in some way through the healthcare field. Dentistry is a combination of health, art, technology, and research which I wanted to be a part of. We’re able to use our hands to save smiles and change lives. The appreciation that your patients have, gives you a sense of purpose in the work that you’re doing.

Being open minded. You have to listen to everyone and see where they’re coming from. You don’t want to limit your organization’s potential by not having new and fresh ideas.
What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned in dental school so far?
You have to always be on top of everything you’re doing. No one is going to care about your future as much as you do.
