“I guess you could say orthodontics is in my genes. Both my father and grandfather were orthodontists, so I came by it naturally. What I love the most is helping people feel better about the way they look. It’s a great feeling to watch the transformation that occurs in someone who is embarrassed to smile and then after treatment feels confident enough to give the largest smile in the room.” — Dr. Paul McKenna
