10 Questions for Dr. Chitre
1) What led you to choose dentistry as a career?
I have always wanted to play a part in the medical profession, and I got attracted to dentistry because of the good balance it offers between achievement of professional aspirations and a focus on your family life. I grew up observing some dentists whom I knew very well and was impressed with the extent to which we can make a difference to people’s lives.
2) When did you decide to be a dentist?
I chose this profession right after high school. In India, we need to make important career choices at that time and I unhesitatingly chose dentistry. When I came to the US and completed my DDS from Michigan, I felt even more confident that I had made the right choice.
3) What was the most exciting thing about opening your own practice?
Before I started my own practice, I worked for two outstanding dentists and those experiences gave me a solid grounding in clinical and practice matters.
