Dr. House believes the best thing about being a dentist is being able to help someone. He is grateful to be able to take away pain in one appointment, restore some self-confidence by transforming a smile, share a laugh with one of his notoriously bad jokes, or give patients the knowledge so they can prevent future pain or problems.
He loves getting to know his patients as people. He says the best part of his day is to learn about their interests and to have the opportunity to be part of their life. No two patients are the same and every single person requires a unique dental care plan, different approach, and different home care.
Dr. House believes that his patients change his life more than he changes theirs. They make him want to try to be a better person and practitioner so he can do his best by them.
