Humans of UCSF: Goodbye and Thank You

Columnist
School of Dentistry

“It's crazy to think this place has been my home for the past four years. So much learning and growth, as well as patient care, have been achieved in these cubicles. I saw my very last patient at UCSF Dental Clinic this past Thursday. Definitely bittersweet. Over the past two years, I've helped bring him to oral health, and he's shared with me his life stories, his favorite sushi restaurants, and his best yoga tips. As we said our goodbyes, he thanked me for my care and told me that I would make an amazing oral surgeon one day. That's honestly the best feeling in the world. And a reminder of why I chose to be in this profession. Thank you, UCSF, for everything.“
