Healthy, Beautiful Smiles for My Patients
I am passionate about providing quality, personal care to my orthodontic patients. I find my work worthwhile and fulfilling, especially when I see that the results make my patients happy. Those smiles, and a person’s increased self-confidence, tell me I’m in the right profession.
I chose orthodontics because I enjoy science and like working with my hands. Being an orthodontist allows me to put those to use improving the lives and health of others. I also enjoy the challenge aspect of my profession: each patient has unique needs, and I have to figure out the puzzle to help them develop a healthy smile.
Being an orthodontist means I am involved, long-term, with each of my patients. I get to know them beyond a set of teeth, and we develop friendships. I enjoy hearing about their families and interests. Of course, I couldn’t go without the music and movies updates, either! — Dr. Lynn Remington
