Why Did You Become a Dentist?

The best thing about Dr. Ross’s job is meeting a variety of people and helping them become healthier and have great smiles. Ever since he was young, he always respected his family dentist and was especially influenced by his orthodontist during his high school years. This made him initially want to be an orthodontist! However, by opting for general dentistry instead, he has found that he’s able to meet with a wider variety of patients and that the field allows him to provide many more procedures. Of course, that hasn’t stopped him from expanding his education along the way!

Where Did You Study Dentistry?

Dr. Ross graduated from the Medical University of South Carolina in 1991 to earn his DMD degree and completed a two-year general practice residency at North Carolina Baptist Hospital on the campus of Wake Forest University. There, he served as chief resident during his second year. He currently holds 33 years of experience in the dental field, 27 of which he has earned at Coombs, Ross & Sourlis Family Dentistry of Rock Hill!
