Being an orthodontist means being in the best profession in the world: I am privileged to have a positive, lasting impact in each patient’s life!
Not only do I create beautiful smiles, I also improve an individual’s oral health by aligning their teeth and jaws, and increase their emotional and social health (self-esteem) by creating an aesthetically pleasing smile. Additionally, treatment impacts a person’s total health, as the mouth’s health is related to heart disease, diabetes, and other systemic concerns. Each patient ends their treatment with stronger physical and emotional wellness, as well as a great smile!
As an orthodontist, I appreciate the diverse people I meet and get to know through my career. Learning who a person is, talking about their interests and activities, and sharing in their progress and success, is deeply gratifying.
I truly cannot imagine a more fulfilling – professionally or personally – way to spend my days!
