Helping children in need is my passion. One of the fastest growing epidemics in children today is dental caries. This can be attributed to the lack of knowledge of parents and to the high anxiety that children have when going to the dentist office. I want to change that. I wish to become a pediatric dentist that enables children to feel no fear of the dentist, and creates a fun environment for children to learn more about oral health. This can change the negative stigma that is portrayed in the media, and especially in some cartoons! Changing this stigma will change the world. Children and their parents, in a comfortable environment, will learn more about healthy oral habits such as brushing and flossing, but more importantly they can learn better diet decisions as well which will positively affect the nation’s obesity problem as well! I know that I can be such a person to create this great change in the world!
