Why Did You Decide to Become a Pediatric Dentist?
After high school, Dr. Adam went to art school to become a graphic designer or illustrator. He eventually found himself living in Thailand where he had a chance to volunteer at a government-run children’s hospital near the border with Myanmar. Even though it was heartbreaking to see the children dealing with various ailments, he really liked working with the doctors and nurses and seeing the children smile thanks to their treatment. This experience showed him that he wanted to work with children as a career, and dentistry sounded ideal because it would allow him to use his artistic and creativity abilities as well.
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
Dr. Adam graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in biology, and he then attended Georgia Health Sciences University. After earning his dental degree, he stayed and completed his two-year pediatric specialty training. Now, he regularly updates his education through his memberships in the American Dental Association, Texas Dental Association, and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do?
Life at home is delightfully busy for Dr. Adam and his wife, Janie, thanks to their three children, three dogs, three cats, and assortment of chickens and rabbits. When he isn’t chasing children or animals, he enjoys woodworking and repairing old sewing machines. He likes to take a busted machine, get it working, and then make something with it!
