I consider myself an extremely blessed and fortunate man to be an orthodontist. It means so much to me that I am able to have a role in creating a radiant smile and producing a positive outcome for each of my patients.
I like to think of orthodontic treatment planning as solving a puzzle. Every person is different, with their own clinical and personal needs: it is my responsibility to find the solution to the individual’s puzzle. Some puzzles are easy to solve and some are more challenging, but in every case, I strive to ensure that the solution is comfortable, timely, and effective. For me, applying the detailed treatment plan to a patient and watching their puzzle resolve into a healthy and beautiful smile is deeply rewarding.
We are privileged to have a diverse patient base and to interact with all ages from all walks of life. It’s each person’s life experience and story that helps us broaden our worldviews and offer better patient care.
Our practice motto, “Making lives brighter … one smile at a time,” describes all that we do.
