Here are their answers:

“I’m thankful for the relationships I’ve built in my journey through dentistry. These relationships have led to a great associateship and involvement in organized dentistry. I’m thankful for these relationships, as they have allowed me to make a difference in the community and to those in need.”

Dr. Emily Hobart

Dr. Daryn Lu

“In my journey through dentistry, I’m most thankful for the relationships. Without my family and friends, colleagues, or patients, I wouldn’t be the person I am today. Oh, and fluoride as well.” 🙂

Dr. Joe Vaughn

“I’m thankful for every door and hallway that have led me here. Thankful for the mentors and the peers and the many conversations had along the way. Thankful for the friends and the classmates and the residents and all the people in my life that have made it what it is. Thankful for the experiences I’ve had. In the clinic and out of it. The crowns that looked beautiful and the crowns that didn’t seat all the way. The good experiences and the bad. I’m thankful for each and every one.”

I’m thankful to be part of such a great profession, and I’m thankful for the help and inspiration I receive from those around me — constantly.”
