claire Why do you want to be a dentist? 

My passion to become a dentist began when I was only six years old. I have firsthand experienced the transformative power of dentistry, and I want to be able to provide a place where I can cultivate confidence within my patients through improving the quality of their smiles. I love the relationships dentists build with their patients through meeting them in their pain, discomfort, or fear and providing a way to improve their quality of life. 

What are you nervous about for dental school? 

I am most nervous about the adjustment to a harder curriculum. 

Why do you think you’ll make a good dentist? 

Through my journey as Miss Ohio, I have interacted with a variety of amazing people and learned to respect everyone no matter their backgrounds or opinions. I look at each person through a lens of compassion and kindness with a desire to know them better, and I will treat my patients the same way. I am devoted to respecting the individuality of each patient while offering them the best care possible so they can achieve their very best smile.
