Why Did You Want to Become a Dentist?

Dr. Rohner’s father was a pediatric dentist, and he encouraged him to go to dental school, but he actually said “no thanks” until he was halfway through college! By then, he realized he would be good at dentistry and decided to go for it. As it turned out, he was naturally talented, and the clinical skills were easy for him right from the beginning. Dr. Rohner was always good at video games, and he believes that this translated into being a talented dentist.
