“I first became passionate about orthodontics after having braces myself. I saw first hand how a great smile has a huge impact on one’s life. I look forward to getting to know my patients over the course of their treatment and working hard together. One of my favorite things is seeing how happy patients are when their braces are removed and seeing their beautiful, confident smiles.”
