Dr. Hei truly loves being a dentist. He enjoys small talk with patients, goofing around with their kids, and taking the time to develop a relationship with them. When patients trust their dentist, Dr. Hei feels that their care and treatments are ultimately better. This fits with Dr. Hei's competitive side. He loves the challenge of diagnosing and solving a tricky case while on a mission for constant improvement.
