SHAILJA DHIR ENSOR
I have wanted to be a dentist since I was ten years old. My pediatric dentist growing up hired me as a part-time dental assistant in his Columbia, MD office when I was 16 years old and I have been in the field ever since. My job description included assisting chairside, teaching oral hygiene, confirming appointments, and any other task that needed to be done. My part-time work continued until my junior year in dental school.
My favorite aspect of being a dentist is getting to know the patients and watching them grow up with healthy, happy smiles. I joined the team of Morgenstein and Levy, who embraced me as a new addition to their family. One of the many things I admired about Dr. Morgenstein was his passion for treating special needs adults and children, which has become an integral part of our practice.
