Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?
Dr. Price got married and became a mother at a very young age – because of this, she never thought she’d be able to accomplish much success on a professional basis. However, her strong passion for dentistry pushed her forward to overcome this stigma, and today, she really enjoys encouraging young people to follow their dreams who have a similar background! Over the past decades, she has worked as a dental assistant, a Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH), and an office manager before deciding to pursue her Doctor of Dental Medicine. She has also trained as a chairside assistant in sedation cases with hospital dentistry in pediatrics.
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
After completing her undergraduate education at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, Dr. Price pursued her doctorate at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine in Bradenton, FL. She is also very passionate about continuing her education and regularly pursues training courses to stay current with new developments in the oral healthcare field. She is currently a proud member of the American Dental Association.
Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do?
Dr. Price is happily married to her high school sweetheart and has two teenage daughters, as well as two pets: a Rat Terrier named Molly and a Cocker Spaniel named Roxy. Whenever she has free time outside of the dental office, she enjoys hanging out with her loved ones, traveling, and reading a good book.
