On Being an Orthodontist

I consider my patients and their families to be part of my family. I want to get to know each individual personally, not just as a patient. I find this connection is essential, professionally, because it allows me to find the right treatment solutions that work with each person’s clinical needs and lifestyle. Personally, I enjoy the friendships and look forward to seeing each person at their visits, as it’s a time to catch up on the latest news about their life.

I love seeing the confidence a beautiful, healthy smile gives my patients. Whether I’m caring for a child or teen, or working with an adult patient to give them the smile they’ve always wanted, I know I’m creating changes that will transform their lives. When someone knows they have a wonderful smile, they feel differently about themselves. A person’s self-esteem grows and they become more outgoing, initiating conversations and smiling and laughing without worry.

My Education and Continuing Education

I attended The Ohio State University and hold both a Doctorate of Dental Surgery and a Master of Science, and completed a residency in Orthodontics. However, my formal schooling was just a jumping off point. Oral healthcare, and orthodontics in particular, is a constantly changing field. With new technologies, changes in treatment processes, and emerging materials becoming available, it’s essential I remain current. This ensures my patients receive the highest level of care, and have access to the best treatments, which deliver the strongest outcome.

Each year I travel across the country, attending continuing education meetings and conferences, as well as participating in hands-on demonstrations, taught by the leaders in our profession. I also keep up with the latest research findings and discussions within our community, through the relevant journals.

Personal Life

When I’m not working, being with my family is my top priority. I can often be found at home, cooking and baking in the kitchen, or in the middle of a home improvement project. Saturdays, in the fall, I’m likely tailgating for Ohio State Buckeye football games. By the way, I was a four-year member of the Ohio State Marching Band while in college, and had the honor of dotting the “i” in the band’s famous “Script Ohio” routine.
