I’ve been practicing orthodontics for more than 15 years. When a person feels good about their smile, they’re happier, more confident, and more successful. I experienced this myself and it’s why I became an orthodontist. When I was a patient, I went through the same transformation my patients experience: the confidence I gained resulted in personal and professional successes.
I attended The Ohio State University for my education. It was there I completed my undergraduate studies. I then received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery and Master of Science in Orthodontics. I am grateful that I was selected to participate in these rigorous training programs.
That education provided me with an excellent understanding of the fundamentals of orthodontics. However, this is an ever-changing field. Developments in materials, techniques, and technology all mean better options and more incredible results for patients. It’s essential I stay current on these developments.
Each year I complete many continuing education courses, locally, regionally, and nationally. I regularly read orthodontic and oral health journals. Also, I enjoy working with the orthodontic residents at The Ohio State University as they prepare for board certification.
