As a young boy, I was not studious. Recess was the highlight of my day. Then I met a teacher in Grade 9 who instilled in me a strong sense of confidence. Her kind words and encouragement provided just the motivation I needed to apply myself and work hard.
At that same time, I came across a series of career planning books. “So You Want to be a Dentist” caught my attention. As I read it, I felt a real connection to the journey of the dentist/writer, and on the strength of that feeling, I chose my path.
Being a dentist allows me to provide relief from discomfort to those in need and to improve on the state of their oral health. In addition to providing care, I enjoy working with the inspired ergonomic design of dental instruments and tools.
After 30 years as a solo dentist in West Vancouver, I had the opportunity to join Dr. Behmard. I greatly enjoy being part of a larger team and have derived immense satisfaction from working in such like-mindedness.
