I thoroughly and passionately enjoy what I do. I feel incredibly grateful to work with so many unique and special people every day. I have a great sense of joy when an adult or adolescent patient tells me how much I have helped them.
While I help people, I feel I get so much more in return. As I view letters of appreciation and thanks from patients, or hear how I have transformed someone’s personal or work life, it is hard to describe the feelings of satisfaction and happiness that I feel. When I hear a young person say how much they appreciate some of the things we do in the community and say they want to be like me in the future, it is both humbling and gratifying.
I love being an orthodontist!
I became an orthodontist out of a desire to help people and make a positive, lasting difference in their lives. In my early days as a general dentist, I was happy when I could relieve someone’s pain. It was incredibly satisfying.
Now, as an orthodontist, I am able to combine my scientific interests with my desire to help people be healthy and happy, and achieve their best smile.
My personal and professional goals are the same: always to evolve and constantly learn, so I can make treatment better and easier for my patients. Each year I exceed the New York State requirements for continuing education.
Keeping up to date allows me to bring the latest technology, techniques, and scientific information to my office to make care more comfortable, convenient, and easy for my patients. We always want to be on the forefront of science and technology to provide exceptional care, just as we would do for our own family. We are never complacent and strive to be the very best at what we do.
