Why Did You Decide to
Become a Dentist?

Dr. Shu’s parents enrolled him in art classes when he was very young, sparking a creative flame that he has maintained throughout his life. He developed an interest in medicine and science growing up the child of two medical professionals; his mother was a cardiologist, and his father an orthodontist. The field of dentistry turned out to be a perfect fit combining his passion for science with his creative ability.
