“I feel so lucky to be an orthodontist! It is a fantastic profession. I absolutely love my job--I love talking to people; I love working with my hands and using modern science and technology to improve the lives of individuals. I love laughing with my patients. They share stories of their lives and adventures with me, and allow me to become part of their life’s story. I treasure the moments when a patient chooses to tell me what they are learning in school, the accomplishments of their families, or where they have been traveling. I learn so much about the world and life from the conversations I have with my patients, and truly appreciate each insight.”
