Helping you obtain a beautiful, healthy smile is our goal. We are sensitive to your concerns and will work with you every step along the way. I personally strive to keep up with the latest techniques and advances in the field of orthodontics so we can offer you the very best in orthodontic care. Today's world presents many challenges. An attractive smile can make a positive difference. Not only can it enhance a first impression, but a beautiful, healthy smile can project confidence and can often raise self esteem. Orthodontic treatment does result in a healthier environment for your teeth and mouth. When your teeth are properly aligned you can maintain them better and are less prone to gum disease. Also you can chew more efficiently and thus place less stress on your jaw joints (TMJ) and are consequently less likely to develop "bite related" TMJ problems. I appreciate the opportunity to work with you and look forward to meeting you!
