“I love making people smile! When the braces come off it’s not only a great day for my patients, it’s a great day for me! It is an unbelievable experience to watch a patient transform right in front of your eyes. Many times, I see children who are shy and embarrassed by their smile and through our treatment I have witnessed a dramatic change in their personality and self-image. Their confidence soars and their shyness melts away. It’s extremely rewarding to help my patients reach their fullest potential through the power of orthodontics.” – Dr. Ciccone
