Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?
Back in the day, Dr. Nix had braces, an expander, and oral surgery. In fact, she had her mouth wired shut for 6 weeks before entering high school! The procedure and how it changed her life for the better fascinated her, and she knew then and there that she wanted to spend her life helping others have a newfound confidence as well. At just 14 years old, she told her parents that she wanted to become a dentist!
All of these years later, she’s just as passionate about the dental field and what it can do for others. The combination of building lifelong relationships with science, medicine, and creativity is her favorite part of her job year after year. Genuinely, there is nothing she loves more than making others smile!
