It’s really, really neat when we’re working down there to think, “Hey, this could end up in someone’s mouth,” for example. I love being able to see my work and say, “I made that!” It’s a great feeling. I love making products that we know will help improve lives, too.

I know of no other profession that enables the year-to-year development of human connections and gives us the opportunity to create a virtual extended family with those humans we call patients. That connection can even build over multiple generations.
