A Love For Orthodontics
Everything about orthodontics excites me and I knew this was my path in life since I began my own orthodontic treatment when I was 12. It’s very rewarding to witness the progression of treatment and develop long-term relationships with my patients and their families.
I love transforming a person’s smile and their oral health. Orthodontic care can increase a person’s self-image and help them develop greater confidence in many areas of their life. When a person feels good about their smile, they’re more outgoing and likely to engage with others. They smile and laugh openly, and enjoy life more.
I truly enjoy how eager patients are to get started transforming their smiles, and how happy they are once they start seeing how their treatment is changing their appearance. I find myself getting excited with them.
