DDS, Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine
Why He Was Nominated
Dr. Roser started his practice one month after graduating from dental school. Since then, he has developed a thriving business focused on preventive care and technological innovation.
When he was young, Dr. Roser dreamed of becoming a veterinarian like his father, but severe allergies put an end to those ambitions. “I fell into dentistry and am blessed that I did,” he says. “You get to help people every day and have a positive impact on their lives. It’s a great profession.”
Favorite Aspect of Dentistry
“I really enjoy surgery,” he says. “Taking out teeth, placing implants or doing a biopsy. I can change a life without all the brackets and bands.”
Managing people. “By now, [performing] dentistry is like walking,” he says. “It just happens. But good practice management takes time and experience.”
