What a privilege it is to be able to work with so many wonderful patients and families! I feel incredibly grateful to be in a profession that I absolutely love. There is nothing more rewarding than feeling like I am making a difference in the lives of those in my community. Orthodontics is about so much more than achieving a great smile, although who can complain about that? It’s what that smile can do- helping individuals build their confidence and self-esteem to excel in other aspects of their lives- that is so meaningful to me. My goal as an orthodontist is to help each of my patients achieve beautifully aligned teeth, balanced facial esthetics and a functional bite. I do this through careful diagnosis and customized treatment planning. I love treating patients of all ages including children, adults and everyone in between. Whether it’s high school graduation, your wedding, the birth of your grandchildren or simply every day’s life moments, my goal is to help get you to be able to show off your best smile possible. I am passionate about building long-lasting relationships throughout treatment and beyond and look forward to the opportunity to serve you!
