Why a Dentist?
I like to challenge myself and dentistry is a challenging discipline. It’s constantly evolving as techniques and materials improve, and one of the biggest challenges is to change peoples’ perceptions of what dentistry is and what it can do. It’s preventive and nurturing, and can be transformational for a patient on many levels.
