Janki Patel is a biology major at the University of Houston. She enjoys spending time with her family and friends, reading, and going for jogs to clear her head. She loves traveling and learning about different cultures.

Here are a few words from this aspiring dentist when asked about her background and why she wants to become a dentist: 

"Choosing dentistry as a career was a journey for me. I always knew I wanted to do something in healthcare because I’ve always loved helping people. After shadowing different professions, I fell into dentistry and realized I loved it and that was how I wanted to spend the rest of my life. I love putting smiles on people’s faces and watch as their confidence grows. My favorite part of dentistry is the feeling I get after helping a patient and seeing them smile at me and thank me with so much gratitude."
