Making a Positive, Lasting Difference
It’s a joy to spend my days helping people achieve their healthiest, most beautiful smile. As an orthodontist, I meet amazing people and have the honor of learning about their lives, families, and interests. Their stories delight me and I look forward to each person’s visits as a time to see their orthodontic progress and hear their latest news.
At Straight Smiles Orthodontics, my team and I know that having a healthy smile and straight teeth will change your life. Every day, we watch our patients gain confidence and see their self-esteem grow by leaps and bounds. People who started treatment feeling ashamed of their crooked teeth, hiding their smile behind closed lips and a ducked head, now smile and laugh with ease. By the time they finish treatment, each patient has a smile they love and love to share. Best of all, they’re going to have that wonderful smile for the rest of their life!
We focus on each person as an individual, and strive to understand their personal goals and concerns. Only through clear and open communication are we able to deliver the best care, that’s tailored to each patient’s specific needs. This ensures the best treatment experience and most incredible, lasting results!
Education and Commitment to Continuing Education
My Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) was awarded by Stony Brook University School of Dental Medicine. I chose to remain at Stony Brook for my orthodontic residency. The education I received provided me with an excellent foundational understanding of orthodontics.
However, orthodontic techniques, technologies, and materials are constantly changing. These advances mean even more comfortable care and more amazing results for my patients. I take the trust patients place in me to develop their best smile seriously. By pursuing continuing education throughout the year, I ensure that I’ll exceed their expectations.
