It's kind of always been this growing up. Two main reasons why, one is I had some trauma to my mouth in elementary school and so that require me to go see dentist a lot. I had root canals, surgical procedures, bone grafting, extractions, implants, braces, I experienced many different parts of dentistry. I always enjoyed going for details procedures and everything going I always enjoyed being there, so I was a big part of it. Secondly, my uncle is a dentist he lives in Iowa but he's always been a kind of a mentor to me and talk to me and tell what it was all about. So that was the second aspect. And all that combination and all since I remember has led me to want to be a dentist.
