A Love for Helping People
I consider being an orthodontist the best job in the world. I love helping people not just have better, healthier smiles, but to have better lives. Having a beautiful smile increases a person’s self-esteem and the confidence with which they move through the world. Every day, I am able to help people develop smiles that will improve their life, for a lifetime.
I’m a parent. As such, with each young patient, I look at them as I would my own child and ask how I would approach their treatment. My entire staff shares the same goal: to provide excellent care to each and every one of our patients. — Dr. Mark Holt
