So I knew I really wanted to work with kids, and so that’s why I chose pediatric dentistry for my career. I also really like working with my hands. And I wanted to do something where I’d be able to help people. So that’s why I chose pediatric dentistry. I also love working with kids with special needs. And pediatric dentistry gives you the unique opportunity to do that. I like that I get to see kids smile. And that’s my favorite part of being a dentist. Something that I’m really passionate about is helping kids feel comfortable. So, it breaks my heart when I see kids come in here and be super terrified. And so, that’s something I’ve worked towards with all my patients. So we build relationships. We meet them where they’re at, so they feel comfortable with what we’re doing. We show them what we’re gonna do before we do it. And we want them to be excited when they come here and happy when they leave.
So I’m really passionate about staying up to date on technology, and I just purchased a laser. And so that’s something I’m really excited about. And so I’ve been taking courses on that, as well as building out my practice so that I can see patients who need that service. So what the laser will help me do is tongue ties, so I’ll be able to help little babies who are having trouble nursing. And I think that’ll be really exciting and rewarding. My personal mission statement is to always have fun and make sure that I help other people feel the same way. So I want other people to feel comfortable, and feel cared for, and respected regardless of their age or their abilities. And I hope that I can share that with my patients so that they can spread that to other people in the world too.
