Why Did You Decide to Become a Pediatric Dentist?
When Dr. Rozas was a toddler, her mom often gave her coke and chocolate milk in her bottle, which led to “baby bottle tooth decay.” As a result, she had to have her front teeth pulled when she was only three. Throughout childhood, she also had three sets of braces, her wisdom teeth pulled, and plenty of cavities. Despite all of this, she absolutely loved going to see her dentists.
