I decided to become a dentist actually in high school, and I wanted to pick a profession that you were able to help people change their lives, see procedures through, make a change in people's lives, make them healthier, you know, make them happier, be able to smile.
The most rewarding part of dentistry is when you're finished, you know, treating patients, you can see the difference it's made in their lives. If somebody's anxious and you work with them, complete their treatment, they're happy at the end. You know, they're healthier and smiling more.
I went to dental school at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, graduated in 1990, and then came into this practice right after that. And I've been here ever since.
