As a teenager, he learned to assist with dental tooth charting using the “old school” red and blue pencil method, years before computers were used in dental operatories. Having a strong background in dental assisting, Sam understanding, spoiling his two dogs Jasmine and Georgia, traveling and attending Miami Hurricane football and UK basketball games.
