Let’s be honest; there are many things to love about working in the dental field. From helping

young patients overcome dental fears to restoring a long lost smile – and all the little things in between – dentistry is an important and life-changing field.

Recently, we asked our Facebook community to share why they love being a dental professional. The responses are truly heartwarming:

The fact that I can get someone to smile more and feel more confident is one of the greatest rewards. Building confidence in the world today is hard enough. –Rhonda Petersen
