I became interested in Orthodontics when a family friend invited my sister and I to be his patients in his orthodontic specialty training at Northwest University Dental School in Chicago. My orthodontic care was a transforming experience for me and my self confidence. I was fascinated by all aspects of my treatment and I decided at the age of 12 to make orthodontics my career. My enthusiasm for the profession and what a difference it can make for people motivated me to do my very best in the 11 years of college that were required.
I thoroughly enjoy interacting with patients and helping them achieve their goal of a great smile that will be a powerful asset their entire life. I never get tired of their excitement when braces come off and they see their new smile for the first time.
