On Being an Orthodontist
I truly love what I do and enjoy coming into work every day. I have a great staff and a fun, relaxed work environment that allows me to be myself while interacting with patients and their families. Best of all, I feel like my patients enjoy coming to the office for their appointments, as we work together to give them their best possible smile – a smile they will carry with them for the rest of their lives!
