What is the greatest satisfaction that Dr. Rasmussen derives from his profession? He explains below: The greatest satisfaction that we see is the life transforming effects that it has on our patients. And with periodontal disease, this is something that does affect our systemic health, so it really is a lifelong commitment not just to oral health but also to systemic health of the patient as well.We also find that many of our patients become an extended family, become very good friends of ours. In fact, one of my close friends, Arch Deal, got me into skydiving and got me into flying planes. Another great patient as well a good friend of mine is John Turner. And John, who is world-class barefoot water skier, got me into water skiing as well, but not holding it with my teeth!
