"Dentistry, to me, is the fulfillment of a long-term dream to care for people in a unique way: marrying the art of dentistry with the biological constraints of the human body.
I love the personal interactions I have with my patients, getting to know them and they me. Our conversations and the connections that grow as a result, mean the world to me. It is truly remarkable to have a career that allows those relationships to develop while I use my skills, experience, and training to better people’s lives."
— Dr. Robert E. Walinchus
