Most people either loved going to the dentist as a kid—or absolutely hated it. Where did you fall? How come?

What (or who) inspired you to get into dentistry? How so?

Lifelong interest in the sciences, along with an artistic flair.

What’s the most rewarding part of your job?

Getting someone out of pain.

How do you recharge after a long week? What’s your go-to activity for hitting the restart button?

Going for a long hike with my dog.

What dental stereotype are you most passionate about changing?

That we cause pain and are not empathetic. All we want to do is help!

In another life, if you weren’t working in dentistry, what would you be doing?
