I’ve been wanting to be in dentistry since I was in second grade. It just took me a little longer. Marketing and communications prior to this, and just decided it’s not really what I wanna do, and went back to school, and I love what I do. Every day is different. I think the most rewarding aspect of dentistry is actually building relationships with the patients. You know, they may come in, they may be fearful, but if you just take the time to talk to them, find out their concerns, and try to put them at ease, you will find that not only are they more comfortable, but then, they start opening up about more things in their life, and you do really build relationships. So that’s probably one of my favorite things.
