Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?
Dr. Fisher originally became interested in the oral healthcare field through talking with his orthodontist during his high school years. His teeth were seriously overcrowded, and seeing them finally straightened made him feel a lot better about himself. He decided to become a dentist but wasn’t 100% confident that he’d made the right choice until shortly after he started seeing patients. There was one man who he knew from church who never seemed to smile. Dr. Fisher assumed he was just grumpy, but it turned out his teeth weren’t in good shape and needed to be restored. After he finished treatment, the man couldn’t stop smiling – his real personality was finally revealed!
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
Dr. Fisher attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for both his undergraduate degree and his dental doctorate. By doing rotations in oral surgery and special care/geriatric dentistry during undergrad, he was able to gain valuable experience in specialty fields that has served him well over time. He has also completed continuing education courses in sedation dentistry.
Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do?
