"One of my professors at dental school said, 'Your greatest challenge as a dentist will be to apply everything you learn to giving the best possible dental care to every person you treat.' Thirty years later, I'm still guided by that thought."
A powerful education stretches the mind with new ideas to improve your quality of life.
