Why I Like Dentistry: I love many things about Dentistry, one of which is getting to know our patients;learning about their families, their interests, vacations and special moments in their lives makes the relationship we have special.

My favorite part, however, is having the opportunity to take part in transforming people’s smiles. Almost everyday we encounter those who either refuse to smile or cover their mouths because they are so self conscious about their appearance. Seeing our patients leave with a new self image is most rewarding
