The most rewarding part of being a dentist is basically as I was saying, whoever has experienced dental pain, it is really a bad pain. And most of the time for some reason, we have seen patients who have pain to that degree that they aren’t able to sleep, they have had these problems for a while. And it’s like when the camel’s back has to break, and most of the times we’ve seen it’s in the night. So as the night approaches, the pain starts to shoot. I had a patient, if you ask me what was the most rewarding part of being a dentist – this poor gentleman started having pain during the middle of the night, we do take emergency calls so I took his call, we got him in in the morning, he had a very bad, severe infection in one of his mandibular molars, which needed a root canal. So we had to put him on some strong antibiotics, give him some strong pain medicine, drain the tooth out and get the infection out, and he was feeling much better right on the chair itself. So, I would say that was when I felt really good about being a dentist, that the person who was in so much pain, I could get him out of the pain. He of course thanked me, and he came later on and we did his root canal and crown.
