Why I became a Dentist
One of the main reason I became a dentist was to help people. I get the most satisfaction and feelings of reward when I can make someone smile and feel as though I have changed their lives.
Recently a man came to my dental office who was a recovering drug addict. His teeth were completely destroyed and he was in a great deal of pain and embarrassed about his smile.
After about a year of treatment, he was no longer in pain and was smiling ear to ear.
His mom wrote me a letter when we completed treatment stating that her son was happier then he has ever been, always smiling and had a very positive attitude toward his future. She thanked me and told me that she feels that his new smile had everything to do with his new attitude toward life.
This is why I became a dentist.
