“It’s so rewarding to see the boost in a patient’s confidence that comes from receiving orthodontic treatment.
One of the things that I enjoy most about the orthodontic care setting is the relatively regular frequency that I get to interact with my patients. I enjoy building a rapport with my patients as we work together toward our mutual goal of achieving a healthy, beautiful smile for them.” – Dr. Franks
