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

What inspired me to become a dentist was a girl that I had a crush on in college was going into it. The irony is that she became a teacher and I ended up being the dentist.

What’s the most rewarding part of your job?

People! Treating people hands down!

What famous person (alive or dead) is your dream dental patient? Why?

Michael Strahan! I think this one is self explanatory

What’s your dream toothpaste flavor?

Coffee flavor. It’s genius for coffee lovers who hate mint!

What’s something your patients might be surprised to learn about you?

I’m a huge Knicks fan unfortunately :(

Shows you that I’m committed person!

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

Probably an actor. Definitely something expressive.

When I’m in the patient chair, I’m probably grooving to {blank} in my headphones.

90’s music. Nothing like a throwback!
