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

Hippotherapy - purposeful manipulation of the movement of a horse as a therapy tool to engage sensory, neuromotor and cognitive systems to promote functional outcomes.

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