Why Did You Decide to Become a Pediatric Dentist?
In her younger years, Dr. Maggie watched as her mom went back to school to study nursing and pursue a profession of serving others. It inspired her to choose a career that involved helping people as well! After being a volunteer coach for a young girls’ basketball team and going on three dental mission trips, she realized that pediatric dentistry was her true calling in life. Growing up as an athlete and point guard, she’d always loved being part of not only a team, but the local neighborhood as a whole. Today, she’s very proud to be a community leader while also taking good care of little teeth all day long.
