What Dr. Ginger Price Loves Most About Being A Dentist

Home » Blog » What Dr. Ginger Price Loves Most About Being A Dentist

WE RECENTLY ASKED DR. Price a few questions about her career. Here are her answers – thought you’d find them interesting!

How old were you, and what made you decide you wanted to become a dentist?

“I was a Fine Arts major, focusing on clay and sculpture in college. My Dad – a family physician – kept bugging me – “When are you going to get a REAL major? When I was a Junior, he decided to get his teeth straightened and one day he said “Why don’t you become an Orthodontist? You like working with your hands, and you’re a good student”. The rest, as they say, is history!”

Where did you attend school and how long have you been practicing?

“I attended Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in Southern California. Loma Linda is very well known for their Healthcare program, and also known for their Dental program in that they really focus on clinical skills. I graduated in 1983, so I’ve been practicing now for over 30 years!!”

What advice would you give to a young person considering a career in Dentistry?

“Today more than ever, an individual considering the field of Dentistry needs to consider what the job actually entails, that it is very demanding with high people contact and very confining close work. I would definitely recommend that they interview and shadow several dentists to gain insight into the actual day to day realities of the career. Too many have rushed to the field thinking it’s “easy money” when they didn’t have the right personality or temperament to succeed in the world of teeth.”

What is one thing you find most satisfying about being a dentist?

“Smile Design is definitely the most rewarding as well as the most challenging. To be able to transform not just a smile, but how a person feels about themselves is highly gratifying.”

We hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know Dr. Price better! And, as always, THANKS for being our valued patients and friends!
