Hello David! Thank you for taking some time out of your schedule to talk to us.
Q: What brought you to this conference?
I’m currently in the early planning stages for a non-profit foundation dealing with pediatric dentistry and this conference has given me some remarkable insights into the European dental system and preventive care for children.
Q: What made you become a dentist?
Actually, this was all my mothers fault. She noticed early on that I was very good with my hands and so when the time came to decide which way to go after college, she always encouraged me to get good grades and work hard on my term papers to be able to study dentistry. I think all she wanted was a dentist in the family.
Q: And did you follow her advice?
Well, obviously I did. I finished college College of Charleston and continued my education there, at the Medical University of SC where I graduated as a Doctor of Dental Medicine in 1985.
