“My passion for Orthodontics started during my own treatment. I was always interested and curious in the process because I came to realize no two treatment cases are the same. While in treatment when I was younger I would always ask my Orthodontist about other peers braces from my class, and why they had certain appliances I’d never seen. Over time I began to realize it’s a career I had interest in, & something I would enjoy every day. Not only do I enjoy what I do, but I am a part of helping someone feel more confident in their smile!”
