“Growing up my thoughts of a career revolved around either being an astronaut or an orthodontist. Quite a contrast. I started college in the Aeronautical Engineering Department and really enjoyed that first year but I decided to try the Pre-Dental Program while I was there, just in case that’s what I really wanted to do. I enjoyed the technical details of Engineering but it turns out many years later, my career as an Orthodontist has been the right choice. It has been an amazing adventure in a career making a major difference in people’s lives.”
