“Practicing orthodontics allows me to help people in many ways. Some people seeking treatment are unhappy with the position of their teeth and want to straighten them for aesthetic purposes.
For these patients, giving them the smile of their dreams gives them self-confidence. Other people are looking to correct more serious problems that affect eating, speaking, and tasks that help them function in life.
Whether their problem is mild or severe, it is so rewarding to see patients walking out of the office feeling happy about their treatment. While I was growing up, my mother was a dental assistant. Frequent visits to her office allowed me to see what an amazing field dentistry is, and I knew from an early age that it was what I wanted to do professionally.”
