From your first phone call, to the day your get your braces off, we are here to serve you with hospitality and warm hearts. Our top priority is your comfort and we hope you have a pleasant experience in our office each time you visit.
“My favorite part of my job is meeting new people every day and forming relationships with them during treatment. Seeing the teens grow into adults and adults become more confident is very exciting. Seeing the teens come back and hearing about them going to college or setting off in the world and seeing their smiles gives me a great feeling of accomplishment. I continually remind myself and staff that while we put braces on and take them off every day and it may seem mundane, it is life changing for people and we always try and get wrapped up in their excitement of the moment.”
“I enjoy watching the transformation of a patient’s bite and witnessing the positive impact it has both on his/her dental health and self-esteem. I receive a great deal of satisfaction and accomplishment when a patient is getting his or her braces off, and they see the smiles and hear the kind compliments from relatives.”
