I had a roommate in college whose father was a physician and his stepfather was an oral surgeon. So I spent some time with the oral surgeon after college and realized I wanted to be in dentistry. I like the patient contact. I liked being able to really make some difference in people's lives. A lot of people talk and think about their teeth, and so it seemed like a good fit for me to get into. I think the most rewarding thing is really to see those patients who come in who are maybe a little apprehensive about dentistry or not really sure about the services we're able to offer them and really bring them throughout the full spectrum of what we're able to do, from just having a conversation with them about treatment to actually carrying out that treatment and have them say, "Wow, that was easier than I thought," or, "That wasn't as hard as I thought." That's probably the most rewarding thing we get to do.
