Why Did You Decide to
Become a Dentist?
When she was a teenager, Dr. Barge had to undergo jaw surgery. The process of preparing and then healing from the surgery gave her tons of amazing insight into the dental world. Later in life, she worked for the surgeon who performed her procedure as an assistant, followed by a stint of assisting a general dentist during her undergraduate career. Although her initial inclination was to become a physician, these experiences (and her own unique interests) propelled her to pursue dentistry as a career instead – and she’s never regretted that decision!
