“As an orthodontist, I have the ability to change a person’s life in a positive way. A straight smile is not just aesthetically pleasing, but it can also boost a person’s self-confidence. I really feel that orthodontists are blessed, since patients come to us in most cases because they want to, not because they have to. It’s great to be an orthodontist, as I genuinely enjoy helping my patients on their journey to achieving an awesome smile!
“I love what I do and truly care about my patients. It is my privilege to provide orthodontic care to such a fun, up-beat group of people!” – Dr. Supplies
