What got Dr. Rolfes into Dentistry?

What got Dr. Rolfes into Dentistry?
Dr. Rolfes started working at his Dad's Dental Clinic halfway through his undergraduate degree in Business School, as a summer job and found that he really liked it. He had his first actual experience in Dentistry while working for his Dad and he learned so much since then, which made his transition from Dental School to Dentistry much more easier.

Today, SMILES4OC in Costa Mesa, California has a good team with years of experience along with great Mentors, his Dad, Dr. Rolfes, Dr. Do and Dr. Dunne.

I was halfway through my undergraduate degree in business school. At the point, I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do long term and I also needed a summer job.

So in between my 2nd and 3rd year at college, I started working at my dad's dental office and really liked it. I always liked all the people here. It was my first actual experience in dentistry.

From there I really took a liking to it, learned a lot and decided that maybe this is for me. So, I started talking all the prerequisite science sources which I also really liked.

Probably, I went through 3/4th of my 3rd year in college, and I really decided this is what I wanted to try and do. So I applied to dental school and I got in and now I'm here. I'm really happy that it worked this way.

As far as joining the practice it has been a great experience. Everyone that worked here is really experienced and they all help me so much, I have learned so much since I have been here, and it made my transition really easy from dental school into dentistry.

Also, we have some really good mentors, my dad Dr. Rolfes, Dr. Do, and Dr. Dunne, are all wonderful dentists and its been great being able to learn and work with them as well.
