Quotes

My treatment goals are always the same no matter the patient or the situation: to provide excellent, individualized orthodontic treatment that not only creates a beautiful smile, but also a healthy and stable bite relationship. I always attempt to accentuate the positive, individual patient traits in areas such as lip lines, smile lines, profile, and facial features because orthodontics is much more than just straight teeth. I want my treatment results to be something that my patients and I are very proud of for years to come. I especially enjoy the wonderful changes that I see in my patients over the course of their treatment; not only dental and facial changes, but also the positive changes in their overall level of confidence and self-esteem.
