Hello, I'm Dr. Trotter. I grew up in Long Island. My father was a dentist, and we worked together for 10 years, and I really got to see the value that he created in people's lives and how they actually really appreciated what he did for them. And I had a new appreciation for him as a father and as a person, and I got a really strong feeling about the profession, and that's really what drew me into it. I was lucky enough to learn from him by spending 10 years with him in the practice, and changing the practice, and introducing him to all the technology that we had available to us, you know, that he didn't really have as much exposure to. I'm accredited with the International Congress of Implantologists. I'm actually a fellow with the ICOI. So, in addition to being a fellow with the ICOI, I'm also a mentor with the CEREC training program, and we do help other dentists, basically, institute and implement that technology in their practices. I like to work with my hands, and I like to work with computers and all that stuff, but I also like to work with people. So I make it really important to myself, and also to my staff, to understand that, you know, there's a human being attached to those teeth. So we try to get a feel for them as an individual. One of the first things we do is we ask them questions about themselves. What are their desires? How do they feel about themselves in terms of their smile? What are their previous experiences? What do they like to do for fun? And I like to develop that relationship with the patient.
