__Most people either loved going to the dentist as a kid—or absolutely hated it. Where did you fall? How come?__ I hated going to the dentist as a kid, but I loved the air water syringe. Now, as an adult, providing oral surgery, I love to go because I know all of the possibilities that can happen with much more than just air water syringe. __What’s the most rewarding part of your job?__ Having a patient tell me after surgery that they barely felt a thing. __What famous person (alive or dead) is your dream dental patient? Why?__ The tooth fairy, because she owes me a percentage. __What’s your dream toothpaste flavor?__ Matcha green tea, because its just so refreshing and healthy __What is the absolute coolest thing about the human mouth? __ That no two mouths are the same. __In another life, if you weren’t working in dentistry, what would you be doing?__ Turning the New York Knicks into contenders. __What’s something that really, really, really makes you smile? Like, really?__ Watching my daughter dance ballet and my son play tennis.
