I am very passionate about orthodontics and I feel blessed to give myself so fully to something I love so dearly. Because treatment plans are carried out over a period of months or years, and because we often see many patients within a single family, we have an opportunity to establish strong ongoing relationships. Orthodontics is not just about straight teeth and a balanced bite; it’s about improving patients’ lives and perceptions of self. From the beginning of my orthodontic career, my goal has been to provide the highest quality treatment in a friendly, family-oriented environment. I consider each patient as an individual and I provide treatment options based upon their personal dental needs and orthodontic goals. I enjoy the increased happiness my patients derive from their constantly improving dental condition and appearance.It’s the people that make a practice, and I am especially proud of my team. Their level of knowledge allows them to communicate very effectively with our patients and their families. They are a compassionate group and they are authentically willing to put patients at ease and to make them feel comfortable at their orthodontic appointments. All of my staff members have had orthodontic treatment themselves and they have a special empathy for the patients’ experience.
