I have always found great pleasure in helping others achieve their goals in life by giving them beautiful smiles. I value the opportunity and the trust my patients give me to help them make this life changing experience. I like treating my patients like family and I feel honored that they select me to be their orthodontist. I enjoy treating both children and adults with metal braces, clear braces and Invisalign®. Nothing makes me happier than seeing the pleasure I bring to my patients after finishing their treatments.Every year I attend courses and conferences to stay up-to-date with the latest orthodontic innovations and techniques. As a board certified orthodontist, I feel it’s my duty to be involved in the research and continuing education that allows me to provide the best treatment options available to my patients.
