About Our Doctor

AbouttheDoctorMeet the dentist who’s enhanced over 3,000 beautiful smiles – and counting!

“We've built our reputation by setting the standard for leading-edge orthodontic care with an emphasis on personalized care and patient comfort. And it's been that way ever since I began practicing over 14 years ago. Simply put, in our office, we follow the Golden Rule and treat you like we ourselves would like to be treated.”

A quality education is the foundation for success

“I received my education at some outstanding schools. And while I learned an awful lot about how to straighten teeth and make beautiful smiles, nothing could have prepared me for the education I receive every day in the office from my own patients. I’m glad I chose to become an orthodontist. Nothing is more rewarding to me than helping patients improve the quality of their lives with a beautiful smile.”
