Message from Dr. Orynich:

“I decided to pursue pediatric dentistry as a specialty after returning from West Africa. I knew that working in an environment with children would be incredibly fun and also bring fulfillment.

During my pediatric residency, we treated many children in Dallas who had never been taught about the importance of oral health, nutrition and hygiene, and many more who had never been treated by a dentist.

As pediatric dentists, we have an opportunity to work with families and help advocate for changes in public health policies to improve the lives of the children around us. Understanding this has motivated me to serve as a child advocate in health policy.”
