To begin my blog, I thought it would be a perfect way for Doylestown to get to know me by introducing myself to new patients and having current patients learn more about me.
My daughter Lauren, who is 10 years old, asked if she could “conduct an interview,” and I thought what a great idea. Of course she was very excited. So this is how it went, told by a 10 year old.
Q: Dad, Why did you become a dentist?
A: I knew I wanted to become a dentist since I was 12 years old, almost your age. My best friend’s Dad was my childhood dentist. I watched him work with his hands, and I saw the positive reaction he had from his patients; he made people feel better about their teeth and their smile. I talked with him a lot about dentistry, why he liked it, and what he told me was it’s a challenging and rewarding job. I will always remember him saying, “It makes me happy to see people proud of their smile and staying healthy.”
