attending West Virginia University to pursue my dentistry career. However, my parents suggested I become a physical therapist and encouraged me to attend a physical therapy school. While I considered their suggestion, I ultimately decided to finish my undergrad studying biology. During my time as an undergrad, it solidified my determination to become a dentist, and I decided to attend the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry to continue my education and graduated with honors in 1983. After I received my dental degree, I wanted to start my own practice, just like my grandfather. To help launch my career, I worked as an associate for a well-known dentist, although it wasn’t the best experience for me. I only worked there for nine months, but I remember thinking that I could do a better job at running a practice of my own. That’s exactly what I decided to do. With my grandfather’s love and passion for dentistry and everything I had learned both in and out of dental school, I opened my first office in Lexington off of Clays Mill Road. My goal in starting Beaumont Family Dentistry was to provide my patients and community with the same care, attention, and comfort that my grandfather provided me. It was never my plan for my business to reach the point where we are now, and I never expected my passion to reach so many. Many of my young patients have

Becoming a dentist came very naturally to me. I always had an inherent plan to go into dentistry, even when I was very young, and that was mostly due to my grandfather. Growing up, I spent a lot of time at my grandfather’s dental office in Munster, Indiana. He would pick me up after school and drive me back to his office, where I would spend time in the lab and talk with the other dentists who worked there. I was always comfortable being in a dentist’s office and never once felt afraid or nervous. Even as a 5-year-old, I was fascinated with dentistry; I enjoyed watching my grandfather create teeth in his lab, and I even liked the smell of the office. Whenever it came time for my teeth to be cleaned, I was very excited to have my grandfather clean them for me. He always made me feel safe and comfortable. My grandfather instilled a love of dentistry in me and gave me the ideals to base my own practice on. I knew that when I became a dentist, I wanted my young patients to have fun and positive experiences and leave their appointments with smiles on their faces. Dental school was my first formal step to becoming the dentist I knew I wanted to be. When I was in high school, I worked as a dental assistant, and once I graduated, I started

told me they also wish to become dentists, and my two children, my son Ryan and daughter Kyle, have both become dentists and work with me at Beaumont Family Dentistry. Just as my grandfather influenced my life, I have instilled that same passion in many others without realizing it. From my grandfather to me and on to my own patients and even my own children, the enthusiasm for our family dentistry has passed from one person to the next. I am so proud and humbled by what we have been able to accomplish over the past 30 years and more, and I’m excited about what the future will bring. –Dr. Trish Takacs
