What Sets Us Apart

Choosing an orthodontist is a very personal decision. My office is just like every one of my patients–unique. In all aspects of my practice, I want you to come away with a one-of-a-kind experience because that’s exactly what you deserve! There are many orthodontic offices and treatment options available to you. Here are just a few of the details about my practice that set me apart from the rest.

A Passion for Orthodontics

I became an orthodontist because it is one of those unique fields that is both an art and science, requiring the skill of an engineer and the eyes and hands of an artist. Becoming an orthodontist has been the perfect fit; not only do the more complex orthodontic problems challenge me, but the end result is a beautiful smile! And the satisfaction I get working with patients, getting to know them, is something I never imagined.

Excellence in Orthodontics

Orthodontists undergo two to three additional years of postdoctoral residency training in order to learn the special skill required to manage the complexities of orthodontic treatment. As a former Air Force orthodontist, I have seen a world of varying techniques and treatments. That experience has allowed me to customize the best possible treatment for each patient, and offer the most advanced techniques available today in a fun and caring environment.

Excellence in Personalized Attention

I maintain a small office, which enables me to give you the best individualized care possible. I will see you or your child at every appointment and be involved in every step of treatment. This is not an office with an assembly line of patients being worked on by dental assistants! By seeing you every time and paying attention to detail, I can ensure that your treatment progresses like it should.

State-of-the-Art Technology

I provide my patients with the latest in orthodontic technology. Orthodontic treatment has come a long way since the days of headgear and the phrase “metal mouth.” The latest materials make orthodontics more comfortable and efficient than ever before. My practice uses the most advanced techniques available today, and I select the most effective methods and materials for correcting individual problems. I also use digital imaging technology to show patients what I see and keep them educated about their current orthodontic status and treatment possibilities. The use of digital x-rays reduces the amount of radiation exposure (up to 80%) and eliminates chemical waste, which provides for a “greener” environment and greater safety for you!

Enhanced Web Services

My web site gives my patients the option of receiving email appointment reminders, check their appointment times online, and review their account information. This Web service allows you the convenience of staying connected to our office from your home 24 hours a day.
