Dr. Stephen Dentler has worked as a pediatrician since 1995 and could not think of a better job to have.

"You get to know people very well, and it helps to get to know them as they get older," Dentler said. "Parents get to mature as well."

Helping patients is a task Dentler enjoys. The opportunity to help patients get better who normally don't feel good when they walk in is the most gratifying part of his job, he said.

While Dentler has practiced medicine for 18 years, he believes more pediatricians are needed. But he said he plans to be a part of it.

"As Victoria grows, the number of patients we need to take care of grows," he said. "There's a huge need in this community and everybody does their part."
