I love how, as an orthodontist, I can transform shy, reserved children into confident teenagers and adults with beautiful smiles. Indeed, this is an extremely rewarding profession where we get the opportunity to truly change lives. I’m passionate about everything regarding my profession, the patients, my involvement in organized dentistry, and the interaction with other dentists and specialists, especially on our surgical cases that require extensive multidisciplinary care. What excites me the most is that I can have fun at work; I love my job! The most satisfying thing is knowing that I have touched my patients in such a significant way, both aesthetically and emotionally; that we have truly improved their quality of life. Orthodontics has provided me with the opportunity to enrich myself personally through the contact I’ve had with the thousands of patients I’ve treated.
