Meet Doctor Darryl Lung
The truth was my mother had three boys, two girls later. She always expected her boys to be professionals. The oldest, right off the bat, was going to be a lawyer. The second, because my father was an engineer, went into architecture engineering. She expected one of the boys to be a doctor. And I was the third boy, and that’s what I was sort of left with. But I always was pushed towards the sciences, not only in high school but during college. And looked at dentistry as a way to utilize both the health services side, but also I was pretty good with my hands, and I felt like that’s my call.
Most rewarding is the fact that patients can come in with an expectation, with an idea of what a problem may be, but we can educate and expand on the overall health of that patient, not only oral health but systemically as well.
I think bottom line is satisfaction. Bottom line is patients’ trust, and they’re getting something not only that they expected, but maybe a little bit beyond that.
