Sample Candidate Submission

I had a wonderful conversation with Dr. Tooth Root. Dr. Root grew up in Chicago, IL, and graduated from the University of Iowa with a Bachelor’s degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology. Dr. Root attended the Lecom University College of Dentistry graduating in May of 2017. She then began the UTHSA residency program in San Antonio, Texas to gain more experience in Sedation Dentistry, Advanced Endodontics, Implant Placement, Surgery, and Prosthodontics

Upon graduation, Dr. Root accepted a position with a private practice in Utah where she has practiced for the last 4 years. She volunteered during her spare time at the Community Clinic providing dental restorative treatment, extractions, emergency dental care, and pediatric dentistry. 

Dr. Root's long-term goal is to partner as an owner with an established dental business. Building relationships with her patients and creating an environment where the team culture focuses on patient care and work-life balance are of top priority to her.

When not practicing dentistry, you can find Dr. Root hiking outdoors, cycling, and running to stay fit. Her husband is currently completing a residency program at Medical City Hospital and they plan to stay in the Chicago area, near family, long term.

A review left about Dr. Root:

"Dr. Root was amazing. I hate going to the dentist and she made it a much smoother process. She was very compassionate and understood my fear. Throughout my procedure, Dr. Root consistently asked if I was comfortable. I will definitely be seeing Dr. Root again!"
