Being an orthodontist has enabled me to create a smile that my patient has always wanted, improving their health and self-esteem and helping them gain confidence.
At the same time, orthodontics allows me to develop long-term relationships with each patient and their family. I live and work on the Upper Eastside, so I see my patients around in the community, not just in the office. Running into one another, and seeing those wonderful smiles, is deeply rewarding!
I really love seeing people so happy at the end of treatment and knowing I have made a lasting, positive change in each person’s life: not just aesthetically, but improving the health of their teeth, too!
