The reason I decided to go into dentistry was probably the influence of my parents. They were both in the medical field. My father was a physician. My mother was a nurse. I found it very interesting just listening to them and how rewarding it was for them to be able to help people. As a child growing up, I really liked going through orthodontics. I thought that was a fun place to be. The office was fun. The ladies that worked there and the orthodontist always had a pleasant attitude. My godmother's daughter had married a dentist. We started talking. He was like, "Why don't you come observe?" Ended up being there all day, and the time went by quickly. And the next thing I knew, I was just kind of gearing to more science classes in undergrad. And that's pretty much what sparked my interest. I started my own practice in 1999. And I wanted to be able to help patients become aware of what was going on with them, and how I could help them move toward health. I wanted to have a nice, warm pleasant environment that was very modern and had new technology that was integrated into it, so I could have them have the most up-to-date options and procedures, and make it enjoyable for not only the patients, but also for the team members and for myself. Dentistry to me means having an amazing day with my team and patients that become friends. I get to make patients aware of how healthy their mouth is, or if we have areas of concern, and coach them, talk to them, educate them about options that they might have. And it's just rewarding when patients are following through and we see a big change and they feel a big change, and they become part of our dental family.
