What do you like most about dental school?

I absolutely love clinic, being able to interact and treat patients, while learning their story
is my favorite part of dental school.

What has been your favorite ASDA experience so far?

Serving as the District 6 Events/Facilities chair was the most rewarding experience I’ve had through ASDA thus far.


What is your favorite quote?

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not”
-Dr. Seuss


What is your biggest piece of advice for pre-dental students looking to apply?

I advise that you get involved. Be passionate. Stop worrying about what extracurricular
activities will “get you into dental school" or "look good on a resume” because after all,
your interests and abilities are what make you unique. So if you like to write, write. If
you like to run, run. If you like to volunteer, volunteer.

What’s been the most memorable experience from dental school so far?

Receiving my “PASS” for boards while volunteering at research days with my fellow
ASDA gals was a pretty special moment.
