- Braces &
- Why Simply
The first time I thought about being an orthodontist was at age 17. My sister needed braces and orthodontic treatment for her crooked teeth. This had a big impact on her life because she was extremely self-conscious about smiling and sometimes even talking. As my sister went through her treatment with braces, I witnessed her whole personality change and ultimately so did her life; this was amazing! It is truly a profound experience to witness someone you care about go through such an awesome transformation. I believe this is where my passion for braces and orthodontics stems from.
I have a friendly and fun loving team at Simply Orthodontics; they are like family to me. I also take pride and enjoy the relationships that I build with each of my patients and their families.
The ability to create beautiful, confident smiles and the possibility of transforming someone’s life for the better is what put me here and keeps me going in the amazing world of orthodontics!
