“I believe that dentistry is one of the greatest professions that someone can be a part of, and I am so thankful that I have the privilege to practice periodontics. It is a pleasure to meet and work with many different people and to see their many blessings and talents. Meeting, treating, and working with many different people and patients has allowed me to see the unique gifts and talents that God has bestowed in each one of us.” – Dr. Pope
