Membership Matters - November 2017 - 19

you develop great relationships with
your staff and your patients, this
career becomes very rewarding.

Q. If you could impart any
wisdom to new dentists
(pre-doctoral students, or
pre-dental students depending on
the member), what would it be?
Make connections in dental
school, learn as much as you can,
push for opportunities to try new
things, be humble, don't skimp on
business/financial training, have
a plan for your career before you
graduate and use your "student
card" to shadow as many dental
practices as you can before you are
in private practice.

Q. What three accomplishments,
personal and/or professional, are
you most proud of?
Vanessa: I am proud of competing
in several athletic events (two-time
Ironman triathlete, six marathons,
including the Boston Marathon, riding
my bike down the California coast and885790_Paragon.indd
running all 30 miles of the Wildwood
trail in Forest Park), becoming a mom
to the sweetest baby boy and leaving
a stable job that I loved to accomplish
an even bigger dream of starting a
private practice in Lake Oswego with
my husband.
Andrew: I'm proud of finishing
Ironman Coeur d'Alene in 2014,
becoming a dad, and completing
my periodontal residency at
OHSU, where I had the honor of
training under Dr. Bernie Carter and
Dr. Ernie Weinberg before they retired.

Q. What do you do outside
the office to stay balanced/
for fun?
Our son Luke is 11 weeks old, so we
now spend a lot of time with the little
guy. We love to enjoy the trails running
and hiking, biking, and spending
time with our two Boston Terriers,
Fenway (the angel) and Rickie (the
troublemaker).
