On Being an Orthodontist
Helping patients is a natural extension of who I am, and I feel lucky to play this important role in the lives of such wonderful people. It’s rewarding to give someone the gift of improved health and a beautiful smile, and I do everything in my power to make every patient smile right here in my office.
As an orthodontist, I recognize that each person has different needs, both clinical and personal. Whether I am working with a child, teen, or adult, I focus on that person and who they are as an individual. By talking with them, and building a rapport, I’m best able to develop the essential connection that will ensure they enjoy their orthodontic experience and their new, incredible smile.
I believe the positive experiences our patients enjoy in the practice encourage them to take an active role in taking good care of their smiles for the rest of their lives.

I’m passionate about continuing education (CE) and know it’s an essential part of my responsibility as an oral healthcare provider. By remaining current on developing technologies and changes in treatment processes, I am able to continue to deliver my patients with the best care experience, and the strongest results. I regularly attend local, regional, and national meetings and conferences, and participate in webinar events, as well as read the latest research findings.

When not working or spending time with my family, I am an avid reader and love to participate in various volunteer projects. I’ve traveled to South Africa to assist in alleviating poverty and suffering, and have helped children of AIDS victims, as well. I’m also a Sunday school teacher for 5th and 6th graders.
