Why I Love Dentistry

Posted .

It is said that if you love your job, you’ll never work a day in your life.

In being a dentist for over 35 years, I am happy to report that I have NEVER worked a day in my life. My profession is a marriage of science, technology, healing, psychology, and art. I have continued to learn and evolve during my career. As research has introduced new materials and techniques in dentistry, I have been happy to embrace them. In fact, of the treatments I now utilize, I learned almost none of them in dental school! All of my modern techniques have been learned during my thousands of hours of post-doctoral continuing education.

During my career, the thousands of patients I have treated have become like family members to me. I have always welcomed young people, who were interested in a dental career, to shadow me in my office to get a feel for the profession and now I mentor in a hospital-based General Practice Dental Residency program on a weekly basis, where I interact with and teach young dentists who are just beginning their careers.

I still love all aspects of my profession. My practice continues to grow and I am happy to continually welcome new members to our dental family.  At Louis P. Sterling, DDS, PC, my team and I are here to provide you and your family with quality dental care in Staten Island, New York.
