It just so happens my father was a dentist. So I'm a second-generation dentist, and I'm proud to be. And my father practiced for . . . Again, he also practiced for over 40 years, and he enjoyed what he did. And I'm enjoying what I do now and enjoy kind of carrying on this tradition. After 40 years of practice, having some patients that have been in my practice for 40 years is so gratifying. They have become friends. It's just an incredibly rewarding experience to have patients that have been with you for 20, 30, 40 years and to have those kinds of relationships with patients. That's what keeps me coming back. If it's a patient who is fearful, and we're providing a comfortable setting, we're using oral sedation, nitrous oxide, and we're making those experiences better for the patient no matter what it is, no matter what their particular problem is, that's the most satisfying.
