Why do you want to be a dentist?
Oral health is widely misunderstood and access to care is largely withheld from many demographics in today’s society. Being a dentist provides you with a platform to continually advocate for patients both on the local and national level. As a dentist, you have the unique ability to provide both education and care to patients and that is something that I am really looking forward to.

What are you most nervous about for dental school?
I am most nervous about maintaining a healthy school/life balance with a seemingly neverending to-do list.

Why do you think you’ll make a good dentist?
I am compassionate, honest, value meaningful relationships with others, and have a strong desire to pursue life-long learning.
