I have always wanted to be an orthodontist. I love getting to know each of my patients, their families, interests and friends. What makes orthodontics so special is the change that I get to see in a patient’s life as their smile and self-esteem begin to blossom. A beautiful smile gives each of us great confidence and excitement. I love the challenge to perfect every detail about a smile that will shine throughout a patient’s life.
I look at every patient as if they are my own family and am dedicated to getting the smile just right for each individual. I believe the quality of treatment that each patient receives should be held to the highest standard and should be reflected in a beautiful smile. — Dr. Tyler Holt
