Welcome to our practice. I sincerely look forward to meeting you. Please allow me to tell you a little about myself.
I was born and raised in Jacksonville as the fourth of five children and attended Bishop Kenny High School. I was fortunate to see the benefits that orthodontic treatment provided for others by working in my father’s orthodontic practice, which was established in Jacksonville in 1964. I also learned what attention to detail looked like when it came to straight and healthy teeth. The desire to help others the way my father did for so many years set me on the path to orthodontics. To confirm my commitment to continue quality orthodontic care to my patients, I have pursued the highest level of certification in orthodontics by becoming board certified by the American Board of Orthodontics. Only 1 in 3 practicing orthodontist have met this level of achievement.
Orthodontists understand the complexity of growth development and facial form. A board certified orthodontist is committed to the highest level of patient care including a comprehensive treatment approach to ensure quality work. And board certified orthodontists must re-new their certification every 10 years to demonstrate their continuous commitment to excellence.
