“The most rewarding thing about orthodontics is watching the positive change it can make in a person’s life. Before orthodontic treatment, many of our patients are embarrassed to smile because of the appearance of their teeth. It’s amazing to see the dramatic difference when our patients are free to smile without fear.” – Dr. Roger W. Haas
