On Being a Dentist
I love connecting with my patients. Being able to build relationships with them, while helping improve their lives, is rewarding. As a dentist, I’m able to help a person smile with confidence, restore the ability to chew, and move them out of dental pain. Each of those means a happier and healthier life for that patient.
Partly due to my training at the Hospital for Sick Children, I enjoy caring for children of all ages. I find it gratifying to be part of their positive dental experience, and to make a difference in encouraging excellent dental habits and a great attitude about seeing the dentist.
I’ve been a practicing dentist for almost 12 years. Dentistry is truly a field that requires a balance of arts and science. I like the duality of the field, and all the challenges it brings forth. — Dr. Christine Cho
