It has been my life-long dream to be a dentist. I owe this to my parents, both of whom are dedicated and conscientious dentists and are held in the highest regard by their peers and patients. I knew I had made the right career choice the day I treated my first patient.
I graduated from NYU College of dentistry in 2004.
The large variety of patients I treated in New York allowed me to interact with people from all walks of life. My patients were at different levels of dental awareness, education, and home dental care. This challenged my problem-solving skills and I learned to adapt dental treatment to a particular patient’s condition and to bring complex dental treatment plans, treatment options, and decisions down to a level that they could understand and could feel comfortable with.
I did a two-year General Practice Residency at UTHSC San Antonio Dental School from 2004 to 2006. The GPR expanded my horizons in patient care. In the University Hospital, I treated patients that needed dental treatment before major surgeries, chemotherapy, or radiation therapy. I also provided dental care to mentally or physically handicapped patients under general anesthesia in the OR. These patients would not have received dental care otherwise and had an increased quality of life as a result of the care. I was on call in the ER during the residency. This sharpened my diagnostic skills and people skills. I learned to think on my feet and to function on four hours of sleep!
I joined the faculty at the San Antonio Dental School as an assistant clinical professor and supervised the pre-clinical and clinical education of junior and senior dental students.
I worked for two years as an associate dentist in a multi-clinic practice in DFW, gaining valuable, real-life experience in working with patients with a variety of dental issues. I also loved working with young children and educating them and their parents about their dental health. However, I realized that I wanted to provide dental care in a much more personalized environment and Coppell Smiles was the result!
