Humans of UCSF: Father Figure

“I’m a father of three children and it is inherent to want to share one’s experience and knowledge to the next generation. It would be my dream for one of my children to choose dentistry as their career, but that would be my desire and not theirs. I consider all of my dental students as my sons and daughters and I enjoy sharing my life experience with all of them. Currently, I teach in the Simulation Lab with D1 and D2 students and the externs that select my site in my community clinic. I get the best of both worlds.”
