“I love helping people. I like to show patients what dentistry has to offer and let them decide what treatments are right for their specific needs and goals. I love to hear stories from my different patients about how their day has been, how they ended up in their career, about what’s happening in their families. Everyone has a life lesson to teach, if you have the time to ask the right question.” – Dr. Daniel Makuh
