I love orthodontics! As a Dentist it’s incredible to have the opportunity to create the beautifully healthy and happy smiles my patients and friends deserve. Seeing people I care about gain self-esteem and start to smile with confidence is why I love Dentistry: I know I’ve had a positive impact on that person’s life, just as my orthodontist improved my life when I was a child!
I’ve been practicing General Dentistry since 2006 and then proceeded on my two year journey graduating from a Clinical Orthodontic program; obtaining my Orthodontic Clinical Fellowship Certificate from the Academy of Gp Orthodontics in 2017. As a Dentist this gives me the ability to bring in a truly multi focused approach to create your individual smile that you deserve. My older brother, uncle, and many of other family members are in the oral healthcare field. I was introduced to what they do when I was young and was drawn to the connections they build with their communities. Orthodontics and dentistry are a blend of science and art, and allow the time needed to get to know each patient on a personal level.
I’m proud of my team and the Atrium Dental and Orthodontics office. We’ve created a fun, family-friendly space where people tell us they feel at home. We treat every patient like a member of our family, with compassion and professionalism, and respect each person’s unique situation.
