Why Did You Want to Become a Dentist?
“I have always wanted to be some form of doctor once I realized I wasn't going to make it to the NBA. Once I started researching the different fields, dentistry stood out to me. I love working with my hands, helping people, and making people smile. After I became more interested in dentistry, I remembered back to when I was in junior high and just had my braces removed. I had miniature side teeth and was very self-conscious about them. My family dentist had crowns made for me, and the feeling I had when I saw myself with my improved smile was amazing. I strive to bring that feeling to other people.” – Dr. Mark Gaches
