“A smile is the prettiest thing you can wear.”
“Dentistry provides the opportunity to work with patients in a one-on-one setting to improve their oral health and the aesthetics of their smile. The chance to develop that individual connection and to earn another’s trust is one of my favorite parts of being a dentist. I particularly love the opportunity to work with a patient and guide them from suffering rampant disease to enjoying the biological and psychological benefits of a healthy, beautiful smile.”
