Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?

When Dr. Siewert was in high school, he had a friend who desperately urged him to become a dentist. This friend wanted to become a dentist himself at the time and thought it would be fun to practice together someday. Well, that friend eventually found another path, but thankfully, Dr. Siewert ended up staying on the dental path. He received a lot of encouragement and affirmation during his education and training, and as he continued toward a career in oral healthcare, it became very clear that it was the ideal job for him.
