Why Did You Want to Become An Orthodontist?

Dr. Barfield gives a close family friend all the credit when it comes to his choice to become an orthodontist. During his early college days, his friend literally spent hours on end with him describing the wonderful experience of being a dentist. This piqued Dr. Barfield’s interest, and he was eventually drawn to orthodontics because he saw the dramatic improvements it could make to someone’s mental and physical health.
