Our team provides excellence in orthodontic health care based on the highest professional and ethical standards in an atmosphere of comfort and caring. Our goal is to create healthy, beautiful smiles that will last a lifetime. We accomplish this by tailoring treatment recommendations to each individual’s personal needs and by combining the latest high-tech innovations with time-tested patient care procedures.
Our Office Facility
Our modern orthodontic office is specially designed to provide patients, and the family members who accompany them to their appointments, with a safe, pleasant, comfortable, and yet professional atmosphere. We are in compliance with all contemporary health care facility requirements (WISHA and OSHA) for sterilization and infection control. Our records procedures provide security in conformity with the federal HIPAA statutes.
“Orthodontics is my passion - and creating beautiful healthy smiles is my greatest reward. I love sharing patients’ excitement as they see the transformation that comes about as a result of orthodontic treatment. Most of all, I value the relationships that I have built over the years with each patient that entrusts me with their orthodontic health care.”
