I started in dentistry because I always liked the health science fields, and I always liked to build and create things. And the more I looked into it, it was a perfect fit.
As far as dental school is concerned, the University of Illinois College of Dentistry, graduated in 1986. From there, I always had an interest in orthodontics and different types of surgeries, so afterward I really, really pursued it with following up on ortho. I took a number of involving courses over the years.
I did not want to specialize in a particular field, because I really enjoyed providing everything for the patients. I love the idea that they come into one office and have everything from fillings to implants. And I enjoy doing all different types of cases, particularly involving different curriculum.
Probably the most rewarding thing about being a dentist is when you have that patient that comes in and you can tell that their self-confidence … and their hand is over their mouth and their smile, and when we're finished and they leave, they can't stop smiling.
In general, I think we like to provide for our patients an improvement in their overall health, an improvement with their overall appearance.
