Student Stories

What inspired you to a career in dentistry?

“When I was 8, I had my first  appointment with an American dentist, who told me I took great care of my teeth and jokingly suggested I think about a career in dentistry. Surprisingly, I took the suggestion to heart. When I went for my undergrad degree and shadowed various dentists, I became more assured that the 8-year-old me had chosen the right path.”
