Orthodontics allows me to work directly with patients to achieve positive changes in the appearance and function of their teeth.
Many patients start treatment feeling self-conscious about their teeth; this discomfort has an impact across all aspects of their lives. During the treatment process, as we gently shift their teeth into proper position, the individual’s appearance changes. These changes are apparent from visit to visit, and each patient can see the progress they’re making.
By the time treatment is complete, my patients have stable and functional bites, healthy and straight teeth, and beautiful smiles. Their self-esteem has blossomed and their new-found confidence is obvious in every smile they share.
As an orthodontist, every day, I get to see the vast improvement in people’s appearance, self-esteem, and confidence. This is immensely rewarding: I cannot imagine a more fulfilling profession!
