When Dr. Kapers was in elementary school, he went to an explorer group and got to visit a dentist’s office. Seeing the dentist work and interact with the patients was such a great experience, and he was inspired to follow in his footsteps. He made the decision to become a dentist in the 4 th grade – and all these years later, he’s still 100% confident he made the right choice!

Where Did You Study Dentistry?
