“I am honored to be an orthodontist. We are in a unique position to not only improve our patients’ oral health but to help them build confidence, smile, and provide a foundation in oral health for their entire lives. Working with so many unique people every day inspires me to be both a better person and orthodontist! My patients are wonderful. I see them work hard to improve their smiles and am so proud of each and every one. They ask great questions, have fun, and make me smile every day. I truly have the best job!
“I enjoy learning from my patients, giving them beautiful smiles, seeing their confidence grow, and providing them with tools to improve their oral health over a lifetime. My individual relationships with patients are what make every day fun! They never cease to amaze me.” – Dr. Frantz
