Time really does fly, I can’t believe I’ve been here for over a month! Working here has shown me I definitely want to stay in the dental field. People used to ask why I would want to look into mouths all day and I didn’t have an answer other than “I think it is cool.” But since I’ve been here my answer has changed. I still think it’s extremely cool, but now I see there is so much more to it. Every day I see at least one patient come in, in pain or unhappy about something in their mouth, but by the time they leave they have a smile on their face and their whole mood has changed. Having healthy teeth does make a huge difference, not only in your physical appearance, and medically, but also the way you feel about yourself. Taking part in doing that for someone is so rewarding that I can’t imagine doing anything else.
