"Being in a career that has such a rewarding and positive aspect to it is one of the primary reasons I chose this profession. Dentists possess a special skill set that few others have and using that along with our knowledge, we can help people overcome some of the disadvantages against them. Those skills are also easily mobilized and can be used to help out many individuals in the broader area of communities and not just in the confines of one dental practice. It is my goal that as a future dental health professional I can serve in ways that help bridge the gap between those in need and the care they deserve." - Alyssa Spilski
