“This is a great time to be in the Dental Profession. The technological advances that dentistry now offers make dentistry less painful, quicker, and more predictable. I also love the fact the Dental Profession now takes a look at the whole person (mind and body) and not just their mouth. I love the process when a patient comes in hating to smile and leaves after treatment with a big smile for the first time in years. It is awesome when patients realize that going to the Dentist is not longer this horrible experience, but an experience that can be stress free and painless.”
