Dr. Thorburn decided that she wanted to be a dentist while she was in high school. She always knew that she wanted to one day work in the medical field, and she really liked the idea of filling such an important role in her local community! She particularly liked the healthy work-life balance that dentistry could provide, which has helped her be an amazing mom while also having a wonderful and fulfilling career that involves helping kids smile brighter.
