Why Did You Decide to Become an Orthodontist?

As she completed treatment, he got to see firsthand how her smile completely transformed for the better. He also noticed her becoming more outgoing, talkative, and confident as a result of the treatment. It was a life-changing moment for him, and it motivated him to provide that same experience and care to others in the same situation as his sister. Today, he couldn’t be happier with the career path he chose.
