Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?

Dr. Rana started to seriously think about dentistry as a career after graduating from high school in India. He gained a lot of firsthand experience through regular childhood visits to the dentist’s office at his grandfather’s side, who struggled with oral health problems. He also understood the impact that a person’s teeth and smile can have on their confidence, and he wanted to help do that for others around him. Furthermore, through research, he learned how oral health problems could lead to other medical conditions throughout the body, such as heart and brain disease. To help spread awareness of this, he decided to pursue a career as a dentist and hasn’t looked back since.
