EXPERT Q&A

Q: What do you love most about your job?

What our experts say:

The opportunity to make an impact on people’s lives. I can’t tell you what a great feeling it is when a patient comes back to see me post-op and suddenly they have blossomed. They have a new hairstyle or they’re wearing different clothing; they just feel great about themselves, and that’s why I do what I do.

Plastic Surgeon

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Through prosthodontics I focus on function, and I believe that beauty and function go hand in hand. I feel a sense of gratification when I’m able to aesthetically improve a smile and enhance the entire face. Noting improves one’s face and mood like a beautiful smile.

I am the happiest when I am at work, whether I’m in the operating room or the office. I love what I do because it’s fun: I talk to people and take care of them.
