Why I Love Being a Dentist
A lot of people ask my why I would ever become a dentist. In their minds a dentist has to look at and work on teeth all day, so what could be interesting or attractive about that? Well, in addition to being able to run my own business, work with my hands, and meet and chat with interesting and nice people all day, I also get to change people’s lives for the better.
About 6 months ago I suggested to my assistant, Alexis, that we could straighten her crooked front two teeth by placing two veneers on them. In a way, we could makeover her smile by providing “instant orthodontics” to her central incisors. After careful consideration and weighing the risks, benefits and alternatives of this treatment, Alexis decided to go for it!
In less than two hours, we gave her straighter teeth (in the form of temporary veneers), and in a few weeks we will bond in her permanent veneers giving her a beautiful, straight, and mature smile. What a difference a day makes!

In a few weeks, I’ll post the final results. Stay tuned!
Happy Fourth of July!
