Why do you want to be a dentist? I want to live a life of service. I believe that education empowers and enables one to serve with a full capacity. I also just simply love teeth and the uniqueness each smile holds.

What are you most nervous about for dental school? I’m nervous about living up to my own expectations. I expect a lot out of myself academically and can be hard on myself.

Why do you think you’ll make a good dentist? I think I will make a good dentist because I have little hands, and I am a very detail-oriented person. I love art and the creativity involved in dentistry. I have a passion to serve others.
