Why I do what I do?
"I have been interested in biology, science and medicine all my life. I always knew I wanted to be a physician or a dentist. I made the choice to become a dentist for two reasons: I liked the hours that most dentists work which allowed for family time and I could have a profession which allowed me to be a part of my patient's healthcare. My motto is "Treat patients as if they are your family. Do for them what you would do for your own and have a memorable time in the process. Above all treat them with love and respect, always."
