Transforming Lives by Improving Smiles
I had braces in college, while in the midst of my career exploration. I loved the atmosphere in my orthodontist’s office: everyone seemed to be happy and having fun! I was already leaning toward a career in healthcare and my braces experience inspired and tipped me toward this path.
After practicing for more than ten years, I have no doubt I made the right decision. I love what I do, all of it, but especially the people I encounter and treat. I am happiest when I am connecting with others: making them smile, laugh, and know they are appreciated for who they are.
Seeing each person’s transformation throughout treatment still fascinates and thrills me. I love watching children and adolescents experience their personal growth and maturation, which is often accompanied by a growing self-esteem and confidence during treatment. I also love working with my adult patients, giving each of them the smile they’ve always wanted!
