I love being an orthodontist. Every day I help people in our community make a lasting, positive change in their lives, improving their oral health and giving them a lifetime of beautiful smiles!Orthodontic care is about connecting with others. Because treatment takes place over several years, and I see patients about once a month, we have time to get to know each other. It’s amazing to watch a person grow during treatment: as their smile changes, each becomes happier about their appearance and their self-esteem blossoms. They gain confidence and become more outgoing, engaging with their peers. When treatment is complete, the patient has transformed as they have a smile they love, a smile that fills them with pride and they love to share!
