Dr. David’s father (Dr. Kenneth) and his great-uncle were dentists, and both of them always spoke about how much they loved their job. In college, Dr. David got to shadow his dad, and after experiencing the science and creativity that goes into dentistry for himself, he knew that he wanted to follow in his footsteps.
