Becoming an orthodontist was a childhood dream. I am fortunate to have a career I love, where what I do can have a big, lasting impact on my patients’ lives. Literally, I am in a field that brings a smile to people’s faces!
I love, from a technical and medical standpoint, seeing the process and progress of treatment and how that improves the patient’s oral health. Equally as wonderful is being part of the journey that patients take in achieving a great result: seeing the joy before, during, and after my patient’s treatment brings me great satisfaction and pride.
I have practiced orthodontics for 25 years and love the specialty as much today as when I started. Spending my days with people who are seeing me by choice, and knowing what we do together will last a lifetime, is deeply fulfilling.
