Student Stories

What inspired you to a career in dentistry?

“Up until 7th grade, I planned on becoming a sport broadcaster. It wasn’t until my best friend took me to professional hockey games that I realized I wanted to become a dentist. After years of spending time with various athletes and observing the lack of oral health education and lack of protection players had, I realized I wanted to make a change. Dentistry allows me to entwine my love of sports and passion of helping others.”
