I have been in the field of orthodontics since 2001. I love being able to work with families and helping people achieve a more confident, beautiful smile. I had treatment as an adult and I remember it as if it were only yesterday. I felt my teeth looked like a graveyard site and I was always self-conscience about it.
Those memories help me to guide someone who is unsure of going forward with treatment. My role at Get It Straight Orthodontics is to coordinate treatment for new and existing patients. I get the opportunity to help create affordable payment plans to make someone's dream a reality!
