As a kid, I had orthodontic treatment to close a space between my front teeth. Later, in high school, I had an assignment to interview someone and I chose the orthodontist who had helped me. During that process, I learned more about what he did for his patients, and I saw that he really enjoyed his job, which I guess ‘planted a seed.’ Decades later, I am glad I chose to become an orthodontist. Few things are more gratifying than seeing the look on someone’s face when their braces come off. It’s a thrill, and it’s why I commit myself to excellence and pursue what’s in my patients’ best interests.
