Why Did You Want to
Become a Dentist?

Dr. Sutter always knew that he wanted to care for others, which is why he completed two degrees in psychology and biology originally. After some time in the nursing field, Dr. Sutter transitioned into dentistry. Time has proven that this was a much better direction for him, his career, his family, and his future patients! At the time, his wife was involved in the dental field, and he ended up shadowing the dentist she worked for. After witnessing a few intense surgeries, Dr. Sutter was hooked! He applied for dental school, and it turned out to be the best decision he could have possibly made.
