What made you decide you wanted to be a dentist? I was part of the Pre-Dental Society at UCSD. I spent many hours volunteering in local student-run clinics and witnessed dentists changing people's lives and their role in the community. I also participated in US Navy's Operation Continue Promise and traveled to Panama and El Salvador to assist military dentists in providing dental treatment to the local community. I realized that there is a huge need for dental care in many parts of the world outside of the comfortable bubble I live in. Some of the treatment done on these patients were life-changing. I want to be the person who can give others the same life-changing experience to better their lives.

What is your favorite ASDA event? Porcelain Ball

Interesting fact about me: I can touch my nose with my tongue

What do you see yourself doing in five years? Owning a private practice and one or seven dogs and being an active member in my community.

Where can you find me outside of school? In my apartment or on social media.

What Pandora station do you listen to when you have patient? Disney station or any station with no lyrics. I once played Rihanna and quickly realized that some of her lyrics wasn't appropriate for clinic. Don't make the same mistake I did!
