As an orthodontist, I value the opportunity to meet and build relationships with my patient family. It is rewarding, to me, to witness the changes each patient experiences as they move from feeling self-conscious about their teeth to smiling with confidence. I appreciate being part of that process and knowing I’m making a positive difference in each person’s life.
I enjoy having two practice locations, in Birmingham and Milford, and that each serves a vibrant community. My team is equally as enthusiastic about both offices and share my focus on patient well-being. They are friendly and caring, always striving to make our patients feel safe, informed, and excited about their treatment experience.
Together, my staff and I work hard to ensure each patient experiences the most comfortable and efficient orthodontic treatment and finishes with a smile they love.
