Student Stories

What inspired you to a career in dentistry?

“Before having braces, I was shy around other people because my teeth were extremely crooked. After enduring braces for five years and undergoing two oral surgeries, my teeth were fixed and my self confidence elevated, which allowed me to seize more opportunities not only in my education, but also in life. I knew that I would go into dentistry so one day I can give to others that same transformative experience.”

Joshua Rose,
DDS Class of 2020
