Why did you want to become a dentist?
Dr. Patrice’s history with Dr. Gerome and their office go way back– in fact, she was a patient of Dr. Gerome’s when she was just six years old! He continued to be her dentist through the most important moments of her childhood, always taking care to ensure her well-being with each visit. This led to her shadowing him in college, cementing her decision to become a dentist herself.
Following graduation from dental school, she had the opportunity to join their office, which she gladly took because she always wanted to be a part of their dedicated, friendly, and caring team. She was even further excited by this opportunity, as she herself is a Loveland native and Milford alumna, and this allows her to serve the people of her hometown directly.
Where did you study dentistry?
Dr. Patrice received her undergraduate degree from The Ohio State University, going on to receive her doctorate of dental surgery from the University of North Carolina Dental School in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. During her time there she volunteered in different public health dental clinics and free clinics throughout the state.
