Bet you didn’t know: At the age of 11, it was clear that I was destined to be an orthodontist. On one sunny Saturday morning, I was riding my bike around my neighborhood, popping in and out of my mouth the space maintainer that I had worked to get loose for the third time in two weeks. Unfortunately, my tongue was playing with it so much, that I accidentally popped it out of my mouth onto the street. Only one car came by in the ten minutes that I was searching for it, but that one car was enough. It had flattened my space maintainer like a pancake. To my credit, after I found it, I went home, grabbed a pair of my father’s needle-nose pliers, and tried to rebend it so that it would fit back in my mouth. I was unsuccessful, but that one incident definitely started me on the path to a career in orthodontics. Every time I insert an appliance like the one I had that was smashed, it brings a smile to my face.
