Andrew Mintzer, DDS

"I chose to become a dentist to help people who are in pain, suffering from disease, and/or have issues with the way their teeth look. Helping people get healthy or just making their smile nicer is very fulfilling for me."

Akosua Appiagyei, DDS

"I chose dentistry because I enjoy the hands-on nature of the profession. I also love the patient interaction aspect and being able to educate patients on the importance of oral hygiene."
