Transforming Lives by Improving Smiles
Being an orthodontist is an amazing job. The most rewarding part is watching each patient’s self-confidence and personality transform along with their new, beautiful smile. I get to give my patients something that will positively affect their entire life, for the rest of their life. I often think about my patients, 10 years from now, walking into a job interview with confidence and a shining smile.
Orthodontics is also a lot of fun! Each patient is a unique puzzle for me to solve, figuring out exactly where I want to get them to and how to achieve the best smile for them. I strongly believe in providing each patient with the most advanced care options, combined with a traditional, hands-on approach to give patients the best of both worlds.
The most enjoyable part of the orthodontic experience is building relationships with my patients. It’s wonderful to help them achieve their goals through the power of an incredible smile. As an orthodontist, I have the unique pleasure of seeing my patients every month, watching them grow and learning all about their lives and dreams. — Dr. Justin Maccaro
