“I am truly honored to be a member of this rewarding profession. I love the fact that it combines the art and science of dentistry. I love meeting new people and learning about them. Not only do I see a diverse group of patients but my staff is also very diverse which allows me to learn new things every day. Working with so many unique patients opens my mind to new ideas and helps me relate to my patients better.
“I feel that my own orthodontic treatment had a great impact on my life and contributed to my success. In the same way I hope to contribute to my patients’ success. I absolutely love the moment when a patient sees their new smile for the first time, after their braces are removed. It is the best feeling in the world to see a patient have more confidence thanks to their beautiful new smile!” – Dr. Bartels
