Why Did You Want to Become a Dentist?

“Growing up as a maid at my parents' business, I became addicted to serving others. I learned that life is a journey of ups and downs, and to get somewhere in life, you have to work hard for everything! I soon learned to pay attention to detail, regardless of the job or task at hand. Because of this, I realized that dental surgery would be a field that I would enjoy as a career! My mission is to serve, and I thank God each and every day for giving me such an amazing opportunity in life!”
—Dr. Jayesh S. Patel
