Ever since he can remember, Dr. Cleveland has been a big science nerd. During his college years, he spoke to his childhood dentist, who convinced him that he should consider becoming a dentist himself. Dr. Cleveland ended up shadowing the man for some time to get a feel for the environment and liked what he saw. After that, his future career path seemed clear!
