“My father is a dentist. As I got older, my father took me to work with him, and I loved what I saw. It was rewarding to see my father helping people. The attention, care, and advice my father gave was truly amazing to see, and it inspired me from that day on. I want to help people. I believe a beautiful smile is important to people’s health, hygiene, confidence, and self-esteem. I want to help patients have the most attractive, natural-looking smile possible.”
