Prosthodontics are the cosmetic specialists in dentistry. We're the original cosmetic dentists and we're the only cosmetic dentists just because we've had that additional training beyond the four years of dental school. In order to become a prosthodontist, they only pick a small handful of doctors into the programs. In my residency program, I only had two other doctors in my year. We only had three prosthodontist per year. What that allows us to do is have a one-on-one mentorship or a learning experience directly with the faculty and the staff. The more seasoned prosthodontist or dentists that have extensive training and over the course of three years, we gain that experience and knowledge that some dentists don't get in 25 or 30 years of practicing. In that environment of residency, we're able to learn these new procedures and learn the mindset of being a specialist.

Dentistry is a really unique field because you're able to interact with patients.Every day is a challenge, and every day brings up new opportunities to help people. I get out of bed every day knowing that I'm going to make a difference in people's lives. I love working with my hands. I love creating things, and I love creating new art every single day.
