“Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.” ~ Mother Teresa

I love this quote from Mother Teresa. It makes me think that, through the gift of orthodontics, I am able to share love through the smiles of my patients. It drives my passion for what I do: this ability to help someone smile in confidence and health.

Being an orthodontist is how I help people. I’ve been practicing since 2004 and look forward to coming to “work” every day.

Having orthodontic treatment can be transformative and seeing that transformation occur, from visit to visit, is very exciting. I love how people become more comfortable with their appearance and their self-esteem blossoms. By the time we’re finished, they are more confident, happier, healthier, and they can’t stop smiling! It’s incredibly fulfilling to know they carry those smiles into the world and share them with others.
