My profession means everything to me. It is what drives me every day and, other than my family, it is what I enjoy the most. Having the opportunity to make people feel better about themselves and their smiles, and to work with people who enjoy it as well, is unexplainable. The relationships I’ve built with my patients have made such an impact on my life; each day I have the opportunity to learn something new from a patient that continues to nourish my professional growth.
