Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?

Dr. Pecheny spent her fair share of time in the dental chair as a child due to her unfortunate sweet tooth. As a result, she became very comfortable with dentistry. The fact that there are so many different aspects of dentistry really piqued her interest early on. But, what attracted her the most was how personal it is. She liked the idea of being able to see her patients multiple times a year and not only treat their dental needs, but also establish lasting relationships with them at the same time.
