Orthodontics is one of the most rewarding specialties in dentistry. The psychosocial improvement and confidence a patient shows after they have completed orthodontics is very rewarding for the patient and for me. To give optimal treatment, I use literature-based orthodontics along with over 20 years of experience to provide the absolute best results for my patients.
