"Looking back, we all experience times where we doubt ourselves and are our own worst critic. During those years when I struggled in dental school, I wish I would have had more confidence in myself and knew that the finish line was attainable. Even when people would tell me I may not be able to do something, guess what? I usually ended up doing them and doing them well."
