What (or who) inspired you to get into dentistry? How so? I worked a dental assistant and realized that I loved the dental field.
What’s the most rewarding part of your job? I love when my patients learn something that I teach them, and also tell me that they want to maintain the clean feeling of their teeth after an appointment.
What’s your dream toothpaste flavor? (Be as SPECIFIC as possible. For example: “Banana split, hold the cherries, add sprinkles.”) Lychee flavor.
__What’s something your patients might be surprised to learn about you? (For example: “I was a cheerleader for four years in high school!” or “I have 17 cats!” or “My hidden talent is: ____”) I love music—including singing, playing the piano, and playing the guzheng (Chinese zither).
What dental stereotype are you most passionate about changing? 'Hygienists just "clean teeth." Hygienists do more than just clean teeth: We educate patients on the importance of oral health and maintenance, and we can also do sealants, whitening, and so much more.
In another life, if you weren’t working in dentistry, what would you be doing? Forensic scientist.
