The practice of endodontics suits my personality well. It is a very precise, technically demanding part of dentistry where patients have a great deal of apprehension about treatment. I get great enjoyment from doing my job and saving a tooth for a patient. The best reward, at the completion of treatment, is when the patient looks at me and says ‘That was easy. Why was I so worried?
