A Remarkable Education

The thorough education I received is the foundation of the quality orthodontic treatment I provide today. But education is an ongoing commitment for me, and one I take very seriously.  I always strive to be the best, and that means I must continually pursue the latest advances that make your treatment faster, more comfortable, and more effective.

A Personalized Approach for Quality Care

“There are many times when ingenuity and creativity allow me to develop multiple options to approach a patient’s treatment. By spending plenty of time getting to know you and discussing your goals, I’m able to find the approach that will work best for your unique smile and your individual lifestyle.”

My Vision for My Practice

We constantly strive to develop a progressive orthodontic practice dedicated to providing the highest quality of care as well as exceptional customer care for our patients and their families. We strive to treat all our patients in a compassionate, understanding manner, and concern ourselves with the patient as a whole.

We want to create a warm, caring, friendly, fun environment that projects the image: “this is the best place to receive orthodontic care.” The patient experience should be one of expectations exceeded. I want to create a practice where patients feel so comfortable with the quality of care that they enthusiastically refer their friends and family to our practice.

Our goal is to create beautiful smiles and to restore natural function, and in so doing, help our patients improve their self-image and confidence. I believe we play a part in the development of our patients. Our interactions with them can contribute positively to that development.

It is critical that we remain at the forefront of orthodontic advances and developments. That is why I and my staff attend continuing education and training courses year-round, and routinely double the required annual continuing education requirements. I believe in building relationships with our general dental and specialist colleagues through enhanced communication and education regarding patient care, especially with challenging interdisciplinary care cases.
