The most rewarding part about me being a dentist would be in helping people achieving their dental health, also improving their smiles, because I believe a healthy mouth is also important to their general health. Having them smile again where they've never been able to smile before because they were ashamed of their teeth. Having a healthy set of teeth can improve you in so many ways. You know, just your self-esteem in general. Having a healthy smile and a confident, healthy smile and a beautiful smile can also improve you as far as, you know, in your job and meeting other people, and getting people to accept you and greeting you with a healthy smile. A smile is worth 1,000 words.
I think patients would greatly benefit from the experiences I've had is because of the training that I've had extensively in cosmetics, but also in TMJ and occlusion. I think, you know, with me, my background in art, I have an eye for dealing with what is good and what looks good in the patient's mouth. I really think that I do a very nice job with patients with their aesthetics, as well as their general dentistry too. But I really have an eye for what looks good with a patient's smile.
