Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?

While growing up, Dr. Brumbaugh’s dentist and physician were both family friends, and he spent a lot of time with them in his early years. After shadowing both in their daily routines, he eventually decided to go into Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (OMFS). Over the course of his college career, he interacted with many different professors (both general dentists and specialist dentists) who were instrumental in sharing their philosophy and love of dentistry with him. By the end of his junior year, he started to question his original goal and realized that he liked the idea of seeing and working with patients over an extended period of time, not just for a single treatment. Today, he still feels grateful that he chose to become a general dentist in the end and wouldn’t trade it for the world!
