“I think we all become dentists because we want to help people. That includes myself. But the coolest part about helping folks with dentistry is the way you get to do it. You use your hands. It’s very rewarding to have the ability to use your hands to get someone out of pain, increase their self-esteem, or help them overcome a fear that they might have had since childhood. It can be challenging at times but I think that only increases the reward.
Dentistry also allows you to get to know folks more so than you would in other careers. You see the same people every six months. You see them have children and grandchildren, you see them graduate high school and college, get married, and buy houses. You get to see and hear about all of this. It's almost impossible to not develop relationships with your patients. I have patients that I can't wait to see because I want to know how the first semester of college went or how their new job is going. These are the reasons I love dentistry.” – Dr. Leech
