“I absolutely love being an orthodontist and feel very fortunate to be a part of this amazing team. Creating beautiful smiles and lasting relationships with my patients is the most rewarding part of my career. To this day, I remember the excellent orthodontic care I received as a child and strive to create that same positive and enjoyable experience for all my patients and their families.” – Dr. Lauren
