Q&A with Dr. K
Dr. Krasnyansky also known as "Dr. K" by her patients and staff, has been asked various questions over the years by faculty, students, patients, and fellow associates. The following are the most frequently asked questions and Dr.K's thoughts on them:
Q: Why did you become a dentist?
Dr.K: My reasons for pursuing a career in dentistry are numerous and compelling. I have always wanted to work in the health care professions, which stands among the few occupations of substance where a person can bring true value to others and visibly improve the quality of their lives. Dentistry is also the crossroads of many challenging disciplines, where a practitioner may convert the study of science into tangible, practical applications that provide satisfying feedback for a job well done.
Q: What do you feel is the role of dentists in the world today?
Dr.K: Dentists are regularly presented with the opportunity to relieve pain and suffering, sometimes acute suffering. Their role in the community is a critical one, in which they touch the lives of those in need and stand ready to educate the population regarding the means whereby they can remain healthy and free from disease. This is a role with real meaning, and I am strongly moved to shoulder the responsibilities associated with it.
Q: What are some of challenges you have faced and continue to face?
Dr.K: Dentistry is a difficult field of study, and I am drawn to its complexities. It requires not only an in depth knowledge of anatomy and physiology, but also an artistic disposition ? dentists must ?sculpt? to produce something both beautiful and functional. They must reach inside themselves to tap abilities from different parts of their humanity and not just their technical side.
Q: What are some of your goals and objectives in your career?
Dr.K: My goal is to change the image of dentistry as it exists in the minds of some ? particularly children and some adults, who live in dread of visits to the dentist?s chair. I believe that this ?bad press? can be overcome with gentleness and honesty, and by treating children early on with the respect that every child and every adult deserves.
Q: What makes you different from all the other dentists in the area?
Dr.K: I can't speak on behalf of the other dentists, but I truly love what I do day in and day out. After all these years I continue to derive a sense of personal achievement and well being from my daily efforts and helping people smile with pride. I have come to see dentistry as a fulfilling and enviable pursuit, generating benefits for everyone, making it a ?win-win? situation for me and my patients.
