My father, my uncle, my cousin's an orthodontist. So it's kind of in our blood. So growing up I was exposed to a lot of this and coming into my dad's office on weekends for emergencies or what not I was always here and his big thing was he just saw how my personality could fit into dentistry. I love working with people. I'm a very people person oriented type of individual, and also the ability to work with my hands, help others in need of help and just combining everything from that regard is really just the perfect profession for me.
The highlight of my day is working with a group of individuals that I really love and respect and appreciate. When you bring all the individuals together to a team, you can really make quite an amazing product. So the care we offer to our patients really is something substantial that I really am proud of. I love helping people. I think as I grow through this profession, I realize that it's not just about an individual tooth type of treatment. We look at things from a comprehensive level and oftentimes we see maybe some person has some jaw pain or headaches and it's debilitating in life. If you can solve their issues, that's a life changing moment for them.
Or maybe they have a self confidence that they just don't really have because their teeth, they don't like their smile and we can improve the aesthetics of them and the way they carry themselves out throughout life is instantaneous, which is great as well. So there's a lot of different opportunities that can really affect someone's life in a positive direction as well as psychologically. I think sometimes this becomes more of a therapy appointment for people and I enjoy that because if I can help guide someone along in their life in a positive, influential direction then I've made my mark that goes well beyond just fixing a tooth.
