Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?
For Dr. Hudson, the decision to become a dentist was an easy one. First of all, he always liked working with his hands, plus he enjoyed interacting with people one-on-one. On top of this, he was drawn to medicine from an early age (his mother was a nurse). He says he knew he wanted to be a dentist by the time he was in high school, and today, he couldn’t be happier with the path he has taken!
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
After graduating from Xavier University, Dr. Hudson earned his dental degree from the Louisville School of Dental Medicine. Over the years, he has studied a vast array of topics and procedures in order to better himself and stay on top of the everchanging world of dentistry, taking classes at prestigious institutions such as the Dawson Academy, Las Vegas Institute, and SPEAR Education. To date, he has completed continuing education focused on endodontics (root canals), dental implants, crowns/bridges, periodontal therapy, TMJ therapy, laser therapy, and orthodontics (he is Invisalign and ClearCorrect certified).
