The direct and possibly dangerous ties between your health and what’s being put in your mouth
A take on metal free Dentistry by Dr. Grace
What’s your backstory?
I am a dreamer who chased her dream to live and become a dentist in the free country that is the United States, where the sky is the limit.
I quit my successful dental practice in Russia and moved to LA with my 8-year-old daughter—without any English or anyone in the U.S. I was getting only 4 hours of sleep a night, first studying English, then studying for the National Dental Board. Due to this lack of sleep, I honestly could barely walk, but failure was not an option for me.
My hard work paid off, and I passed the National Dental Board Exam with the highest score in the nation. Then, I got accepted into the Ivy League UPenn Dental, despite many people’s opinions that it’d be impossible for me to get in. I was an honours student, and after graduating, I was one of the few people who got accepted to UCLA postgrad. Working as an associate for someone else made me realise that I want to be my boss and treat people the way I want to address them, the way that they should be treated: with fairness.
