Dr. Turner

My journey in orthodontics began with a childhood fascination for the profession. Stepping into my orthodontist's office as a middle schooler, I was captivated by the blend of problem-solving and compassion I witnessed. This initial spark ignited a passion that led me to pursue a career dedicated to improving smiles.

I believe in the transformative power of orthodontic treatment not just for dental health but also for confidence and self-esteem. Building relationships with my patients throughout their treatment journey is what I find most rewarding, as I witness their growth and transformation firsthand.

For me, orthodontics is more than just a profession—it is a calling to make a positive impact on the lives of others, watching their self-esteem and confidence grow as treatment progresses.
