Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?

Dr. Lam decided to become a dentist after his first semester of college. He loved science and wanted to help and interact with people as a career, plus he enjoyed working with his hands. His mother was a barber, and growing up and watching the relationships she developed with her customers really left an impression. He thought then and still does that being a dentist is the perfect career for him.
