What made you choose dentistry as a career?
Dentistry is a broad scope that provides opportunity to work in a hospital setting, or in private practice. It allows a dentist to transfer their surgical and artistic skills to provide care for a patient. I had the opportunity to be trained in a program which encompasses a private practice setting and a hospital setting. Dentistry gives you the best of medicine, engineering, artistry, and leadership.
What is your philosophy of dentistry?
“Prevention is better than cure.”
How do you want patients to feel when they leave your office?
After leaving the office, the patient should feel comfortable. They should feel relieved of their acute pain or discomfort and ecstatic to use their new smile.
What do you like most about dentistry? What do you like least?
Dentistry provides instant gratification to the surgeon and the patient. A patient that arrives in pain, can return home in comfort. Seeing a patient happy, and comfortable is my favorite feeling in dentistry.
Unfortunately, we must perform surgery which may cause some discomfort. That is probably my least liked part about dentistry. Fortunately, with advances in our sedation practice we can make our patients more comfortable.
