“I knew at a pretty early age that I wanted to be a dentist. It wasn’t until my third year of dental school, however, that I began to think about doing a specialty.
My initial lure to periodontics was the science, in particular the microbiology. As I started in clinic doing the scaling and root planning procedures and oral hygiene instruction, I soon realized that I was getting to know my patients better because I was seeing them on a more regular basis.
I began to see periodontics as the specialty most like a general dental practice in that I would have a chance to develop a long term relationship with the patients I served. After 30 years in practice, I have found this to be true and most satisfying.
Yours for better periodontal health.”
