Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?

While he has known for most of his life that he wanted to one day work in the medical field, those personal experiences caused him to gravitate towards the dental world in particular – and many years later, he still feels confident that he made the right decision. This career is rewarding and fulfilling while also giving him plenty of quality time with his family.
