As she plunked accounting formulas into a calculator during another long night of studying, college student Lisa Browning found herself drifting into daydreams about the day she changed someone's life. At the dental practice where she worked part-time, a woman in her mid forties had recently arrived with a mouth filled with dentures. Having worked her way up from receptionist to de facto dental assistant, Browning helped install implants and restore both dental arches with fixed bridgework. At the post op appointment, Browning saw a complete change in the patient—hair done, makeup on, fashionably dressed, and radiating with confidence—all thanks to a new smile. Browning tried, and failed, to derive a similar sense of satisfaction from the dry formulas before her on the textbook page. Browning soon scrapped accounting, telling her calculator "it's not you, it's me," and enrolling at the Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine. Today, her expertise in general and restorative dentistry—as well as cosmetic treatments—has earned her recurring appearances in the Guide to America's Top Dentists. She is also a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, whose members undergo continual education each year beyond the requirements mandated by state dental boards or federal anti-frowning regulations.
