Student Stories

What inspired you to a career in dentistry?

“The hands-on experience and the ability to improve people’s quality of life is very profound in dentistry. Being able to interact with patients individually gives me a first-hand experience as to how I can beneficially impact their smile and ultimately their self-esteem. These personal relationships and experiences have given me a motivational boost for helping others outside of dentistry as well.”

Saeed A. Bigdeli,
DDS Class of 2021
