Up, Close & Personal
I believe dentistry is a dynamic profession. This means that each case is unique, like a fingerprint, with different characteristics and needs different treatment approaches. That’s what’s interesting about orthodontics; treating patients in this field is not a recipe.
Another blessing is that orthodontic treatment takes months, which creates a bond between me and the patient. We get to have fun and share stories, and with time, we forget that it is a dental visit.
We can already see what the future holds with recent technologies. My predictions are that, soon, dental medicine will be fully digitized, with the potential of gene-altering technologies to prevent caries and periodontal diseases and much more.
Reading books, cooking, baking, and singing. Also, since I’m a family person, I like spending quality time with my family.
Be patient and trust your orthodontist; patience is the highest level of discipline. Especially in any orthodontic treatment journey. And with trust, you will enjoy the treatment journey.
I don’t want patients to enjoy only the last visit when it’s time to remove braces or finish aligners. I want them to enjoy every visit, knowing it will result in a smile even better than what they had in mind.
My work process is simple. It revolves around approaching patients with kindness, active listening to their chief complaint and treatment expectations, providing them with options to keep them involved and delivering what I promised always.
