Being an orthodontist is amazing because it allows me to watch the transformation my patients go through during the course of treatment to improve their smiles. A stunning smile may seem like a small thing, but it can make an incredible difference in a patient’s life. I feel privileged to have the opportunity of guiding a patient along the journey to a beautiful smile, and the excitement it brings, for both the patient and myself.”
