“The reason why I chose the health profession is my deep commitment to helping others, and that passion drove me to acquire skills that would allow me to heal, repair, and restore a person’s oral health. Through the years I have seen how I can improve a patient’s psychological and emotional health by improving oral health. But a dentist is more than just fixing teeth and filling holes. A successful dentist treats the whole person and is mindful of a patient’s needs, so that when a patient sits in the dental chair, he or she feels important, valued, and cared for. During my dental encounters there is nothing I enjoy more than helping a patient feel like there is no other person more important than them. I also show others around me respect, sincerity, and love so that the experience for me and for those with whom I work is positive and rewarding.”
