Dentistry is a unique field of healthcare that allows us to be very hands-on with patients while combining art and creativity with biological science. This is what attracted me to the field of dentistry. Also, dentistry is never stagnant; it is always changing.
The one thing that attracted me to dentistry is the immediate gratification that comes from helping others. I worked in community health centers for 9 years, providing dental services to underserved populations in Washington D.C. and Maryland. It was a lot of hard and meaningful work.
