The first reason why I choose dentistry as my profession is because I wanted to make a difference in my patients' lives. I wanted to improve their smiles, their overall health and make them confident in their smile. Also dentistry, it's awesome profession. It offers a lot of satisfaction, not only to me, but also to our patients. The most rewarding part was pretty much seeing the patient's face. After the first appointment, after we change their smiles, when you see the look on their face, they are so happy. I guess, overwhelmed with the services that we offered. And it's also that feeling of satisfaction for me as a dentist and for them as a patient. I was born and raised in Romania, a small country on the Eastern Europe. While there, I've finished my dental training. I finish my dental education there. As I moved here, I had to start all over again. So I went to University of Pennsylvania, where I finished with the DMD degree.
Dr. Flavia Popescu, a native of Romania, became a dentist because she saw an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of her patients by taking care of their dental needs and helping them live a healthier life.
