I'm sure some of you found your dentists via internet searches but I actually found mine through my health insurance and only 'researched' her very recently. I was actually looking for reviews of what others have said about her but I found out some very interesting stuff about her past. I found an article from 1991 and turns out she used to be a partner with a dentist who owned a practice in the JFK Airport in New York. They were known as the 'airport dentists'! Funny that she's never once mentioned this; only that she used to live/work in New York. In the same article it talks about some exciting times working there and also says that when a commercial plane crashed near the airport in 1990 killing 73 people, they were 2 of the first civilian responders at the site that helped pull the 85 survivors from the wreck. It also says the demand grew for airport dentists and they were asked to open a second office at La Guardia Airport (also in New York) but they decided to just stick with JFK. They talk about performing work on CIA agents, Kuwaiti pilots detained during the Persian Gulf War, and underground Mujahadeen from Afghanistan that were incarcerated by the United States. How fascinating! You never really know people like you think you do. Generally, I do not support google searching when it comes to dentistry but for fun, you should try to google search your dentist if you haven't yet and see what comes up. You never know what you may learn about them! I was quite surprised by what I found.
