  • Why you became an Orthodontist: When my best friend's father in the fifth grade took me fishing for ten days in the fall and ten days in the spring, I thought I had died and gone to heaven, so I thought, "I need to be an orthodontist so I can go fishing whenever I want!" ( I have only been fishing once in 35 years by the way.) So, I wanted to be and intended to be and sought to be an orthodontist from 10 years old. 

  • Favorite part of your job: That wonderful day when everything is finished and perfect and joyful...The drop-dead "killer" smile that makes everyone so very very happy!
