Why Did You Want to Become a Pediatric Dentist?
“I came to America from the former Soviet Union in 1978 as a child with my parents and younger brother. My parents knew that this country would be the land of opportunity that most immigrants dream about. Growing up in the US, my parents could not afford to take me to a children's dentist and could only afford to take me to the local county health clinic. These types of clinics are busy, rushed, impersonal, and sometimes very scary for kids. My experience was not a positive one going to the dentist as a child. During college, I decided that I would go to dental school and train to become a pediatric dentist. I wanted to provide the type of care that I never had the opportunity to get as a child. Now, I have worked hard and persevered to achieve my goals and my dreams. I can see the difference it makes to my young patients when compassionate, nurturing, attentive, and loving care is provided regardless of someone’s economic status, cultural upbringing, or previous experience.”
