"I have been providing orthodontic treatment 2002. Nothing gives me more job satisfaction than seeing the transformation in a patients smile as a result of their treatment and the increased confidence, self esteem and well-being patients feel as a result.
It is extremely rewarding to have the opportunity to work with a highly committed, dedicated and skilled 'team' of specialists at Synergy. This allows me to provide the best possible care for my patients."
