“I see my time in dental school as a preparation for serving the world. Not everyone can fix a mouth in pain, and the training I am receiving now will allow me to help someone who will need it later. I think being generous is one of the greatest thrills of life, and I look forward to being generous with my services at home and abroad. I have relied on the mercy of others, and I want to be able to be outrageously merciful with my time and skillset as a dentist. I plan to continue the pattern of involvement and community service that I have established already in my life, and I am confident that my dental profession will magnify my capacity to serve,” Mortenson said.
