Dr. Gorthy has long been part of Dr. Bonura’s life. She began seeing Dr. Gorthy as a patient when she was just 8 years old. They also attended the same church.
In high school, dentistry became her focus. Dr. Gorthy opened his practice to her and allowed her to work as a chairside assistant during summer breaks so she could see what being a dentist entailed. She loved it! She continued working there over breaks for the next few years.
During dental school, Dr. Gorthy was a mentor and he continues to be one today. When she graduated from dental school, Dr. Gorthy, Kathryn, and even Jolene were there to celebrate with her!
