“My relationship with my patients is built on mutual respect. I involve them in the decision making and I make sure they understand their therapy needs. I value being a health care provider, promoting oral health, and educating patients about their dental needs. As people are living longer, their periodontal health has to be maintained and it’s my job to make sure they have a healthy mouth throughout their life. Through my profession, I love connecting with other humans on a daily basis, whether as a professor teaching my students or as a provider promoting health.”
