Why Did You Become a Dentist?

Unlike many dentists, Dr. Cory never dreamed of becoming one. Growing up, he told his parents he wanted to be a vet, and he ultimately went to school for pharmacy. He eventually decided that he wanted to have more face-to-face time with patients, and there’s nothing better than helping people smile and calming nervous or scared children. During dental school, Dr. Cory found himself spending the majority of his free time in the pediatric dental clinic. He decided pediatric dentistry was his passion, and the rest is history.
