“It may not seem like orthodontics can be life changing for patients but often times, it is. The personal transformation that I see on a daily basis is what makes being an orthodontist such an incredible experience. We see a huge variety of patients from all ages and ethnicities, and the diversity of care makes each patient experience that much more enjoyable and unique. As a family practice, we try to make each patient feel like they are at home and not at the orthodontic office. Our team has embraced this approach and their warmness is noticeable the minute you walk through the door.” – Dr. Scott Kottemann
