“The profession of orthodontics offers a privilege to treat and change people’s perception of themselves and transform their smile. We not only straighten teeth but also provide a healthy and functional result that allows patients to better care for their teeth long term."
“I am passionate about providing individualized care for each patient. No two people are exactly alike and there is no cookie-cutter approach to orthodontic treatment. The part that excites me most about practicing orthodontics is the ability to not only change a person’s smile but to change their self-confidence. I love when patients come out of their shell during orthodontic treatment; seeing an actual change in their attitude is amazing!” – Dr. Fogarty
